This was part of my order that arrived yesterday. I steeped this to have with breakfast, but was running late so I both ran out of time to drink it and make sure I was steeping it properly. I put it in mydouble walled aladdin plastic tumbler, but the chilly apparent 1oC outside cooled it right down by the time I got to work to room temperature.

First thoughts: smelled berry like, but I think it was the acaici that gives it a bit of tartness. Hot, I think I’d oversteeped it because my one mouthful tasted a bit bitter. Cold, the bitterness is gone and there’s a soft berry taste.

Going to give this a proper go later, and an icing and see what happens.

For some reason I read “give this an icing” as “put in some icing.” XD Now I want berry buttercream tea…

I did a similar thing to a friends’s fb status, she said “if you could go anywhere in the world where would you go? I’m planning on winning lotto this weekend”, I read “if you could go anywhere in space and time”. Damn you, Doctor Who withdrawals…

Didn’t get any buttercream last year, is it worth getting if it returns later in the year?

I didn’t get a chance to try the buttercream, I hope it does come back just to mix it with other things. Caramel buttercream, blueberry buttercream, my mind is aflutter with possibilities.

Oh yes, with blueberry jam, my imagination thinks that would be perfect!

Bio

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).
