So I got this as part of the spring collection and I had an iced cup some time in late March, when it was still quite warm here in south eastern Australia. But the experience was so traumatic its taken me this long to log it.

So I got home one day, filled the steeper with water and tea, grabbed a glass with ice and took it all into the lounge. Unfortunately I placed the steeper half on, half off a coaster, and didn’t notice until too late that all my lovely tea had spilled out of the bottom of the steeper, down onto the coffee table, through the shelf and drawers, and had started to dribble onto the carpet. Major brewing fail. I madly rushed to the kitchen to find paper towel, a cloth and grab the re-boiled kettle and steeper tray to re-do the tea. (why waste the third of the steeper full of tea that was left??).

So a few minutes later when the steeper contents was nicely pink, I poured it over my ice. Finally! Fruity, tasty and a hint of tart (hibiscus I presumed, and i don’t mind it unlike other reviewers). A nice iced tea, pity about the trouble getting it.

Oh nooo – you know what? I always place my steeper on a towel to dry, and THREE times I’ve filled the steeper while it’s still on the towel! aka all the tea is now soaked into the towel and everywhere else haha. So annoying!

I remember getting my first cup of tea at about the age of 8. Just a standard run of the mill black, with some sugar and milk to make it palatable to an 8year old. But a love was born and I’ve never looked back!

I’ve always appreciated the quality of loose leaf, and thanks to the discovery of the fanatastic gadgets at DavidsTea while on holiday, the tea obsession has grown! Is it weird to be ordering tea and having it sent half way around the world?

I’d love to do some tea swaps with people to try new teas. I have a bit of a DavidsTea range for any Australians interested in trying some DT goodness minus international postage fees!

Ive just started working at The Art of Tea , a small Tasmanian company. They dont currently ship overseas, but im more than happy to arrange swaps with people. their full product listing can be found here: http://www.artoftea.com.au/. (December 2012).
