Oops! I think the water was too hot, so I gave this a short steep!

I’ll be back to discuss the taste later as well as how the second steep fared.

Later….
Mmmmmmm, ’nough said! But I am biased I love peaches and apricots in my tea!

OOOOh, I would like this one! I just placed a DAVID’s order too..

It’s been discontinued. :( adjusts her discontinued-fairy wings and flits off

MaddHatter

Oh, I better race back and buy some of this tomorrow along with the tea pot that is on sale that I have eyes on!

MaddHatter

Jenn I can always send you some?

Jenn

Damn that discontinued-fairy! Maybe we could work out a swap? I may have something in my cupboard you might like to try :)

Uniquity

Your store still has some?? Man, mine ran out months ago when they warned me about it being discontinued. I have 150 grams of “backup”. : )

aisling of tea

Yeah, I was about to say, holy crap that tea was discontinued ages ago! We bought one of the Nordic teapots last night, the purple one. I couldn’t resist, it matches my kitchen!

Cattibrie

I got some online awhile ago and I think you may still be able to get it there. I think that is the cutest teapot. Almost bought it as a shower gift for my cousin who is purple crazy.

MaddHatter

I’m buying the LIME NORDIC today after work!! hahaha! and I will grab a tin of this tea and a small pouch for you Jenn (and no worries about a swap, I am sure at some point you will rave about a tea that will make me scream "gimme, gimme, GIMME! ….. Phuwease?)

MaddHatter

I wish you could mix and match the cups because I would love just one cup of each colour… sigh oh well…

Uniquity

The Nordic teaware is so cute…I have a moratorium on teaware though, as I have even less room for that than I do for tea! Luckily, I prefer clear teaware, so I can usually resist the urge.

aisling of tea

I want the mugs too, but we need more teacups.mugs like we need holes in our heads. We came home with 6 big mugs from our vacation and had to crowbar them into an already too-full cupboard >.<

Although now I’m wondering, if we contacted Davids and let them know we both wanted one from each set, would they be willing to split them up for us? Hmm.

Uniquity

Haha. We have had to take mugs and glasses out of our cupboard and store them on top because we are too out of room. I tend to get gifted mugs fairly frequently, which is great, except 2 people can’t really use 38 mugs and 24 glasses. I am only slightly exaggerating those numbers, too!

Jenn

Twist my arm! Okay, I’d totally love a pouch if there’s any left at the shop. I WILL be giving you something in exchange, or maybe I can send you $ via paypal? I’ll PM you :))))
Those tea pots are too cute, and a cup in every color would be adorable. Maybe if we all bought a set and swapped? Wait… that may be crazy talk.

MaddHatter

Jenn I am just waiting for your addy to mail you some tea. People must’ve been panicked about this tea because they opened their last bag yesterday (at the store here) and when I got in she just have enough for 150g! Yikes! You’d think that kind of demand would make DAVIDs change their mind?!

Uniquity

You really would, but so far it hasn’t. I think I am going to hassle them on Facebook, maybe if enough people do so it will return!

Bio

I love to read and what goes better with reading than a hot cup of tea on rainy winter nights and an ice-cold tea on a hot summers day?

I used to drink copious amounts of coffee but that was just a joke, because I never drank enough water to flush out that one cup of coffee (32oz of water to 8oz of coffee?!?) and the variety in tea gives me what I need – it is not often I will drink the same thing twice.

Tea is defiantly more gentle on the waistline… Espcially since when I crave apple pie I can reach for a cup of “Mom’s Apple pie” or if I want caramel corn for my movie night, I just have to brew a cup of “Movie Night”…

I definitely have a preference for Oolongs, flavoured Blacks and a select number of flavoured Rooibos.

I love you tea, this can only get better as the extra weight continues to tapper off!

Oh, did I mention I am a reader, a childcare worker, a teacher, a friend, a sister and so many other things in a day?
