Rats. This is definitely not what I was hoping it would be—my hopes were high, but that’s just because I’ve come to expect a certain deliciousness from a flavoured black. First short hot steep was underwhelming (not awful, just underwhelming) so I hoped a cold brew would redeem it and bring out those peachy fruity notes… but sadly not. Any fruity notes were overwhelmed by the bitterness that came through from the Ceylon. Really? Huge bummer. I didn’t think a bitter brew was possible with a cold steep! Meh.

Ok, this blend wins a 100% boost from its first rating because I’ve just made a cold steeped blend that I am totally in love with and it was one of the ingredients.

I used:
4tsp this blend
2tsp Monstrositea Mint
2tsp T2 Turkish Apple powder
1tsp Monstrositea Lavender
1tsp (or maybe 2tsp?) T2 Just Ginger
in around 1.8L water (didn’t quite fill the 2L jug)

And it is a world of deliciousness. So refreshing! I’m really happy with this creation, particularly as I don’t play scientist very often. I’m so happy with this that I’m gonna have to get some more lemongrass & ginger to recreate it! But maybe another company’s blend. Sorry Truly. <3

T2 has one, and you won’t have to order it online. :D

Yeah but T2 are owned by Unilever these days :( trying to support small Aussie businesses going forward.

Jeez, are they really?

If you’re ever in Sydney, I know of a small tea shop (in a very pretty shopping center) run by a little elderly Chinese man. Maybe I’ll go there tomorrow.

Yep, as of about nine months ago. It broke my heart! I was a loyal T2er until then. Even now I find it hard to avoid wandering through their beautiful store but am branching out and trying to find alternatives to their blends where I can. It’s a challenge!

There are a few awesome Sydney tea shops I’ve found in my googling (I’m down in Hobart but sestra is in Sydney). Definitely go visit that adorable-sounding tea man!

It’s in The Strand, which is off Pitt St Mall in the city.

Quite a bland blend. Disappointing, especially after the Scrumptious sample the other month… not sure if I’ll even bother finishing this sample. Or I’ll try and spruce it up a bit… yes, that’s a better idea! I’ll play around with it some more. Think positive!

Sipdown of this delicious sample from the Monstrositea March box! I aaaaaaalmost added a touch of Tea Leaves’ Black Almond Vanilla to my last steep of Truly Scrumptious but I chickened out at the last minute in case it didn’t work and I ruined the last of this treat.

The scent of this tea is out of this world. I love it. Bit of huffing from me… tastes so lovely and sweet too. Do recommend.

Yep, this one’s a bit of a dream lover for me too. How am I going to choose my favourite Monstrositea tea this month? Literally three of the four teas I would be happy with. Halp.

Oh dear, I received both my tea subscriptions in the post this morning (hooray!) and it’s pushed me over the 100 teas mark. Sipdowns in my near future!

This was the first one I threw in, from my Monstrositea box. Lovely and sweet, quite nice on its own but really shines with a drop of milk in there. Sweet and… dare I say it… scrumptious.
