Getting down to the last of this lovely tin of tea, and my how it’s grown on me! I thought I’d come up with a real dud. But this also reminds me that it’s been a while since a T2 Tea Society in-store event… hmm.

Anyway… #memtea. This guy. Had some cold brewed at work today. I love the colour it comes out! Such a lovely blush pinky/red, somewhere in the middle there. I think I’ll brew up the last of it in a big jug and spend my three day weekend drinking it.

Yes, good plan.

Tea #1 served in the pot at my girls’ CAH game day yesterday went down a treat. I can’t believe I’ve only got a little bit of this left—I surprised myself!

Oh cool! As a cold brew left overnight this is delicious and fresh, with no need for sugar. GLORY TO COLD BREWS!

Tonight’s bedtime tea while watching the first half of Rectify S1.

I’ve been in bed since 7pm. It’s cold (nice lead in to winter today, last day of autumn didn’t get above 10°C) and I sat for +3hrs for a tattoo today so I’m quite weary and my arm is on fire.

Tea and mint slices in bed for dinner.

I liked that show!

Decided to have some of this as my bedtime tea tonight (despite trying to avoid black teas for bedtime caffeine reasons) and sorted it out with a bit of sugar and cream.

Cream in tea is ridiculous and wonderful.

This felt like a big pile of cream and roses and I felt preposterous and delighted.

So, this is the custom blend I came up with at the T2 Tea Society event earlier this week. It’s got:
50% T2 Chocolate
25% T2 Riotous Rose
25% T2 Just Rose

I was pretty anxious about making a blend from limited pre-mixed blends and I have to say I continued to be anxious after trying the blend because it just… wasn’t right. I shied away from it for a couple of days, fretting about the ratios and how the heck I was gonna fix it.

I brought some in to work today to see what I could do. I started by adding around 3/4 tsp of raw sugar…

Fixed.

YAY

I don’t really get the chocolate from the black tea, but I’ve got some Cocoa Loco at home I COULD add to see if I could up that. In the end it doesn’t really matter, the rose is pretty prominent (especially after eating some Fry’s turkish delight) and I’m happy and RELIEVED.

I’m feeling a little unwell in my stomach, so I’ve made up a pot of this blend. Hopefully the ginger in this will especially give some soothing comfort. Don’t want to get sick just before we go away for a vacation!

This is a smooth blend with juicy orange and warming spices that I made to replace a “Christmas” tea that I’d run out of. Maybe not as complete as that original tea, but still very good and made out of what I had on hand. Hubby will ask for this as a morning cup, and that makes it rather rare so I’m happy to oblige! Haven’t tried it cold yet (probably without the added cinnamon stick), but I bet it’d be pretty good!

Preparation
Boiling 2 min, 0 sec
