This was the last of the Nestea that came with my pizza order, but it’s not really a sipdown because I never entered it into my Steepster cupboard despite getting a six pack of it (God, Tre and I burned through that so quickly too)…

Speaking of Tre, he left early this morning for Regina for a ten week trip to visit family and such. So now I get to do my favourite thing for the next week or so; lounge around the house butt naked! Woot! Also, he said he wouldn’t promise anything but that he’d try to make it to Cuppa’T for me (and VariaTEA) and to the Vintage Tea Room! So pray he delivers!

But yeah; I made the mistake of brushing my teeth and then drinking this on my way to the bus stop and it tasted so bad. Weird minty metallic taste…

I woke up really early this morning so I actually had breakfast at home for once; normally I grab something to eat during the middle of my shift from either the store or the food court if it’s open. But eating before leaving definitely gave me some extra energy, and I think really helped push the day along quicker! My shift was over before I knew it!

Breakfast, of course, was left over pizza and Nestea though – so there’s that…

I really, really need to go grocery shopping sooner rather than later! I should have taken advantage of my extra hours this morning to cram in a trip to DT to pick up the new blends (I’m dying to try ALL of them and restock on my beloved Root Beer Float blend) and maybe some new teaware. I’m kinda really feeling the Soda Shop perfect mug but I want to see it in person to see if the glow in the dark stickers seem like they’d peel or if they have a weird texture to ’em…

Now I have to wait until Sunday…

OMGsrsly

Oh, I didn’t even look at the mugs. Oops. :) I was too focused on root beer tea.

Hey, last of the backlog! Only took like three hours(?) to get through…

Tre and I ordered pizza tonight. Our regular pizza place has a new special so we figured we’d try it out. So for $25 we got two 9" pizzas, a 9" Apple/Cinnamon dessert pie, and a 9" chocolate chip cookie – oh, and four cans of Nestea. What we didn’t expect was that everything was going to come in one MASSIVE 20" X 20" box. It’s SO FREAKING BIG. Like, there are obviously leftovers and there’s no humanely way to make this box fit in the fridge…

How was a box this big a good idea!? Pizza 73 what were you thinking!? Why couldn’t this come in two of the regular boxes which are 12" X 12" and are deep enough to hold two pizzas? That’d fit in the fridge at least.

Went to the movies with my father and brother; we saw How To Train Your Dragon 2 and it was AMAZING. Seriously, it more than keeps up with how great the first one was. It was a good time! And the animation. Just beautiful. Like, the amount of detail put into all the dragons, among other things, is astonishing and so breathtaking.

My Dad made a deal: he’d pay for either our movie ticket or our food. I took the food option and then, because I’m sneaky and manipulative and totally take advantage of my father, I used my free movie voucher from my date with Tyrell (Spiderman, when the 3D glitched out and they gave us all coupons and stuff) to pay for my ticket and then ordered a poutine, pizza, large kiwi Yogen, bag of mini Snickers bites, regular Nestea, and a regular popcorn. I’m a brat. So sue me.

After the movie they dropped me off at work (I needed to check my schedule) and went home and because I’m totally cool and had nothing better to do I stayed and helped Bobbi and Nina close the store, do their closing paperwork, and balance the cash. I’m like 90% sure that breaks some kind of rule but not sure what that rule would be. I mean, I didn’t get paid and it made things easier for them – but I probably shouldn’t have been cash handling while not on shift. Oh well.

Also, Tyrell is a butt. While I had to spend “quality time” with my father he went to see Queen (and Adam Lambert on lead vocals) and then I had to hear about how awesome the concert was from him this morning. Bleck.

CrowKettle

I want to go see How To Train Your Dragon 2 and eat poutine and things!! :0 I think I may have to do something like that this weekend..

The Queen/Adam Lambert tour sounds like it has the potential to be really neat! Lucky, Tyrell! :)

Roswell Strange

It’s ok; he stayed out past his old man bedtime and felt like shit in the morning, which made me feel much better.I’m a very supportive person :P He goes to bed at 9:30PM cause he’s lame… But mostly because he works at 6AM – I get up at 12:30PM and go to bed at 3AM. Very opposite schedules…

I’m so backlogged; I need to push out a few tasting notes this morning before work or I’m going to feel crazy guilty for putting it off when I have time and am not doing anything better. Bleck. Here we go (I’m even less excited because Steepster just ate my first attempt at writing this long ass note)…

This isn’t really on the tea, because I’ve written a ton about it. More so this is a breakdown of how my date on Tuesday was! Because I said I’d spill about that, so I am…

I had a very fun time: we started the evening by having some fast food at this amazing sit down fast food-y type restaurant called Fuddruckers. It’s really hard to explain Fudds – but it’s one of those places that is just special. When I lived in Regina, it was always a really big deal when we got to go there. Now I live ten minutes away, heh…

So I had a milkshake because they’re the best. It was awesome because he’s pretty well just as nerdy as I am so we had an awesome conversation on Dystopian Fiction, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (and our frustrations about the casting for the new movie), various Marvel comics, and the insane anger of having an online emulator fail and losing your save file.

Then was the movie: Spider Man 2. I loved the movie! And he totally didn’t mind when I started getting really critical of the employees (having worked for the same company as a trainer for a year). We were supposed to be seeing it in 3D but the 3D failed (the first twenty minutes of the show looked like we were at a rave: the 3D was flickering that wildly) so they reset it in 2D and gave us all free passes to see another movie.

And then the night came to a close… With a kiss.

I have to admit though, his height really throws me off. I’ve never really dated anyone significantly taller that me (in fact, I once dated someone with dwarfism who was more than a foot shorter than me) and it freaks me out a little bit. Like, I’m 5’3’’ but he’s at least 6’4’’ and I definitely had to look up when I wanted to talk to him. So, urigdipugpdiugEWBT. Mixed feels about that…

VariaTEA

Yay! I am glad the date went well.

caile

It sounds like a nice date!

Suziqzer

Sounds like a nice date… Enjoy the tall thing, you can wear whatever shoes you want!

Whenver I see you post a note about this tea I always know you are going to spill something about your day… It’s getting a little predictable you know. Lol… Enjoying it.

Fuddruckers?!?!? There used to be one not too far from us!.. about an hour drive. I don’t know why they closed it, but Hubby and I used to go there every time we were in the area. Small world :)

carol who

Sounds like fun!

Roswell Strange

I imagine it is predictable; but it’s nice having a tea that’s pretty much just dedicated to talking about interesting things that happened to me during the day; I can focus a little more on the tea in other notes ;) As for the shoes; I can’t even walk in high heels! I’m totally a “sneakers” kind of person. In fact, I only own one pair of shoes; and I’ve work ’em out to the point where there are holes in the sides (I plan on replacing them tomorrow or Saturday though since today was payday).

VariaTEA

Oh tea twin, we differ quite a bit in the shoe department. I own probably 10 pairs of Converse alone. Also the height thing since I like tall guys.All twins need to have their own interests though or life would be boring :P

Suziqzer

I agree VariaTEA, life would be boring if we were all the same. :)

I only mentioned the shoe and height thing because my mom is very close to my dad’s height and she has complained as long as I can remember that she has to be careful what shoes she buys because she doesn’t like to be taller than him… guess it stuck w/me. I wasn’t looking for a tall guy (or even looking at all) when I met my Hubby. He is taller than me by just enough that I can wear whatever I might want. I myself have a variety of shoes and rarely wear anything w/heals, but I do have a couple of pairs. I like tennis shoes and western style boots or snow boots in the winter and flip flops in the summer, unless the need arises to dress up.

I think it’s sad that I’ve practically worked this into a part of my “daily” work ritual solely for the convenience of it when I really think it only tastes “ok”.

Whatever. It’s better than Pepsi or the other carbonated drinks we sell…

I wanted to get greasy food court stuff for supper on my break today, but alas I was the only keyholder working which meant that, yet again, I was stuck in the store and couldn’t leave for fear there’d be some kind of “emergency” the minute I left. Bleck.

So I was limited to in store options which, for supper prepared with only an electric kettle and microwave (in under half an hour) are limited. So supper became two of these guys and a bag of original chips. Yup – glamorous eating on my part.

Boo.

I really wanted a sub and some froyo.

Anna

It’s the worst when you want a particular foods and you then fail to acquire said foods.

Sil

I’m mean…I would have made one of my peons go get said food for me,m

Suziqzer

Cold Brewed Lemon Chiffon wasn’t enough: after my strenuous day of breaking down pallets I needed something else cold so I pounded back one of these as well. Again, I drank it so fast I really couldn’t even taste it…

But hey, at least I felt less light headed afterwards!

Virginia

Hahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, omg why is this so FUNNY?! Why can’t I stop laughing? Thanks for the giggles :D

I was so thirsty today and once I was done my work teas for the day I had no other options than what was sold in store since I couldn’t leave during my shift (even when I was on break) so this became the default, again…

I really think I need to nudge up my rating (though only slightly) because this is growing on me a fair bit and it really can’t be that bad if I keep coming back to it over the other cold drinks we sell in the store.

Oh! And in other tea/work related news we got a shipment of bagged Green tea in a few days ago, so we’re selling that now. Some of my coworkers were thrilled to have green tea available to them on break now and I’ve now made it my mission to bring in some better green tea (although my selection is limited) so they don’t have to drink that tea dust garbage.

The green tea we sell is worse than bagged Lipton because it’s a “No Name” brand…

Ew.

VariaTEA

You should stock up on Sweet Seduction and share that since that is a tasty green tea :)

I had this at work today on break because I needed a cold drink to go alongside my hot supper. It was nothing special but not awful either. Really I’ve said most of what can be said about this one.

I’m not looking forward to work at all tomorrow: I work 9AM to 7PM and there is only one other person coming in for the day besides myself. She has the same shift as me but is just a cashier so I’m going to have to do a metric butt fuck of extra work to keep the store looking nice (we have an inspection on Monday from Head Office) while balancing the demands of cash/till (so the line up doesn’t get too big). I’ll also be doing all the opening and closing paperwork/coin counts by myself which is normally a two person job. And on top of that I don’t get a break at all because I’m the only keyholder working tomorrow.

Fuck Carole. Fuck the lay offs. Fuck Everything.

I swear to God 80% of the time the overtime pay isn’t worth the extra work/stress.

Lynxiebrat

Ye Gods that sucks. I hope today went wonderful anyways…(Alot of times wonderful for me just means not tempted to kill somebody. LOL.)

Tre ordered in pizza and cheesecake for his birthday yesterday, and what always comes with the pizza we order in? Nestea. So of course it’s in the house again – although this is the last one for now.

Drank it just now while watching this amazing documentary on Netflix called Mortified Nation. If you have Netflix I 100% recommend watching it – I literally laughed out loud and I cried and it was just super fun to watch. Basically it’s just adults reading their real life diary entries out loud to a crowd of people. If that sounds awesome to you; watch it. If it doesn’t – I promise it’s better than I made it sound!

Here – just watch the trailer and make up your own mind:

Had one of these suckers at work today while I was on break: I needed something cold to contrast the super sweet cinnamon bun I was having for breakfast/supper. At this point my Cantaloupe and Cream cold brew was long gone, so this was the least offensive option out of what we have stocked in the Pop Coolers.

Wasn’t so bad: though it did feel like I was pairing sweet with sweet and there were a few bites/sips where it felt like too much.

Cavocorax

Oh, ha! I totally read that as 99 at first and was all, “Wow! Have they changed their formula?”

Sipdown (169/173)!

Well, that’s it for this one – hopefully for a while…

I order in too much (tonight included) so I’m definitely going to try and cut back and maybe, you know, eat the food that I actually have in the house?

VariaTEA

Just so you know, your talk of pizza has made me crave pizza pizza. However, seeing as I am leaving Montreal in a matter of days, I feel that if I order in, it should be food I can only get here. Thus I am really having issues with life :P

MissB

Lol. No street vendors sell pizza? Or poutine pizza? Gosh, I need to stop thinking about the food in Montreal…

VariaTEA

There are lots of places that sell pizza and plenty deliver. There are also poutine places that deliver. However, for some reason, I am craving Pizza Pizza specifically (I think its their doughy crust), but I know when I return to Toronto, I will more than likely be getting Pizza Pizza soon enough. It seems silly to waste one of my last few meals in Montreal on something I can get anywhere.

Suziqzer

Ok, so I know what poutine is.. Was lucky enough to have some when on a trip to visit friends in Canada several years ago & obviously pizza… But what is poutine pizza?!?! Forgive the uninformed American for such a question. I assume it is what it I imagine.

VariaTEA

Haha. Tbh, in my 5 years of living in Montreal, I have not come across a poutine pizza, though I am sure they exist. I have, however, come across a pizza poutine. Also, a poutine burger. And Suziqzer, a poutine pizza would be exactly what it sounds like :P

I feel like I’ve come full circle for the day.

I started the day with a can of this and some microwaved pizza, and now that’s how I’m ending it; can of Nestea and a few slices of Feta & Spinach pizza. Frankly, I’m quite exhausted and once again couldn’t bring myself to cook or ever steep anything. Just whisking my matcha was tiring…

Tomorrow I have family over for Easter, and then my brother is staying with me for a couple days – so not sure how frequently I’ll be on in the next few days. Apologies to anyone I’m in talk with for swaps currently (looking at you 221Tea) – I’ll try to get back to people as often as I can!

221tea

I messaged you back :) But no hurry, enjoy your holiday! You keep cracking me up with your Nestea reviews. I love it.

Started my day with a can of this and some microwaved pizza slices.

I slept for a full 12 hours and felt awesome when I got up, but by the time I was done eating the pizza I felt gross and sleazy again. The two kind of cancelled one another out, I suppose.

The fact I’m drinking this again can only mean one thing…

Yup; I broke and I ordered pizza again. But seriously, it’s good Friday and I just finished a super long shift and the last thing I want to do is cook. Ugh; fuck that shit. Fuck it so hard. This goes with pizza so well though, and the icy coldness of is very refreshing and is making me feel so good and relaxed.

In other news; my Dad/brother are coming up on Sunday for Easter, and then my brother is going to stay over here until Tuesday evening. It feels like such a weird, adult situation; I’m “hosting” my family here at my house, and my brother is coming to visit. It feels really weird and foreign to say or think about, but I’m excited!

Also – our house smells like vomit. That is less exciting.

Tre came home yesterday at like 2 AM piss drink and upset because he went clubbing and A) the people he was with ditched him and B) he couldn’t pick up any girls to bring home. He then proceeded to get sick and vomit on his bed, which he then slept in…

Yuck.

Wishing that my Good Friday had been like yours (the pizza and Nestea after a long shift…not the vomit part). Sounds like a great evening, up until 2 am.

The weird, adult hosting situation is one I have encountered (and will encounter again on Sunday with my own father). Even after multiple years of it…still not used to it, and I cannot move past treating him like a guest, rather than the standard familiarity one might expect from hosting immediate family.

Sipdown (170/172)!

Now that I I’m logging this one, I feel more excited about drinking it. It’s another easy sipdown for me to get in!

I mixed this with a bit of plain vodka (I also picked up vanilla and wildberry vodka) to kind of get my “sea legs” for it again; when I used to drink illegally vodka/whisky were my drinks of choice, but it’s been a long time since then so I’m easing back into it.

It was… ok.

VariaTEA

The one time I got insanely drunk, it was from drinking vodka. I don’t drink vodka anymore.

keychange

Haha. I celebrated my nineteenth birthday a few times…and can no longer drink rum.

Round Two for the evening.

This was the convenient tea option while I was painting my nails.

Does anyone else do that thing where they crack the can open enough that they can suck the pop out of the can but it still visibly looks closed? Tre noticed for the first time tonight that I do that and he was baffled by it. He asked why I do it and I told him I didn’t remember, but that was actually a bold faced lie since I knew he’d mock the real reason.

Truth is I remember very consciously making the observation in around fourth grade that my classmates were all more interesting than me, so I purposefully developed small habits to give myself more “quirks”. Among them were crossing my sevens and only cracking my cans of pop partly open. Now those things are just second nature to me…

Anyone else ever do things to deliberately be quirky and then have those things become real quirks? Or just me?

Sami Kelsh

I cross my sevens. No idea how I drink things out of cans though. For a brief period of my youth, I’d puncture a tiny hole in the bit in the middle of a can with a ballpoint pen or something, then just sort of shake it up and hoover the stream of fizz that I could get out of it. A lot easier just to open the thing, turns out.

Marzipan

I just assume that all of the quirky things I do are normal and other people are weird.

On a whim I decided to search the data base for this one…

Whenever Tre and I order in pizza, we always get the “2for1 Movie” deal, which comes with four cans of pop. Neither of us drink pop regularly, so we get Nestea since this is the “most agreeable” option for both of us – so there’s usually a few cans sitting in our fridge that eventually get drank.

Since we ordered pizza tonight, this holds especially true. I happen to be drinking one of them right now, actually.

Personally, I think that this gets a bad wrap among tea drinkers at the “Steepster” level (by which I mostly mean tea drinkers with lots of knowledge and many types of teas under their metaphorical tasting belts) – sure, it’s highly sweetened – but as a convenient kind of tea I think it’s probably the best in its respective class/market.

I know that personally, I would prefer a glass of this than the typically shitty, over steeped Lipton bagged green tea most restaurants offer. And at least when I’m eating out the average non-tea drinker knows what I mean when I say I’d like a Nestea, unlike when I say “Do you have any oolong?”. That counts for a lot, in my book.

It’s good for what it is.

Flavors: Lemon Zest

whatshesaid

Isn’t Nestea a Canadian thing? I could be totally thinking of something else but I feel like at some point I learned that in the states their version of iced tea is actual brewed tea on ice, with sugar (or not). I thought that was pretty cool. Because my brother always orders iced tea at restaurants expecting to get this,mor the fountain version and when he ordered it one time they brought him actual brewed tea with ice cubes and he was sadly disappointed. But me, I’m a fan. Perhaps it’s more down south (I think. We were in South Carolina)… Though I feel like even McDonald’s in Maine has real brewed tea vs Nestea. I wonder if an American could confirm or deny my ramblings

Roswell Strange

I’m not sure if Nestea is Canadian – but I know what you’re saying about the sweetened brewed tea in the States. That’s typically more of a Southern thing, I think? So like in Texas…

whatshesaid

I think they did it in Maine too but it’s been awhile!

sundaysipping

I’m in the northeast US and restaurants do both sometimes. Although, whatshesaid is right — iced tea in a restaurant is typically brewed tea over ice, sweetened or unsweetened per your preference. Nestea would appear with the soft drinks and would have to be specifically ordered if you wanted that instead of the standard, brewed iced tea.

K S

I am usually very tolerant of non-steepster approved teas. I drink what tastes good to me OR has memories attached. That is the problem with this for me. As a teen I bought a lot of Nestea instant in a jar. Once I started drinking brewed tea I could no longer tolerate it. My son likes it but I just can’t bring myself to try it.

I don’t know why people here judge this brand of iced tea because, overall, this isn’t tea. It’s basically a refreshing drink with extracts of tea flavored ice fishing. Anyway, Nestea is an inescapable easy to find. When I’m too lazy to go to the grocery store, I stop at the corner store to buy some Nestea bottles. It tastes the same as Brisk but you don’t say anything about it because it’s a Lipton brand. That’s it.
