Over 40oC. Bushfires everywhere, the smell is drifting in my windows. General ugh-ness about today. Iced tea is a lifesaver, probably actually. I hope everyone is safe on this horribly dry and hot day.

Adjust been watching the news, fires are quite shocking for this part of the world http://www.news.com.au/national/australia-boils-as-extreme-heat-hits/story-fndo4eg9-1226547438214. To give a reference for the North Americans, Tasmania is close I latitude away from the equator as regions like New England, or Nova Scotia. So this is pretty scary. At least I’m getting slightly cooled by the iced tea, and am at no risk from the fires.

wow, hard to imagine what you’re going through when here, it’s nothing but snow and freezing weather… wish I could send some your way just to calm things down…good to know you are safe!

There’s lots of people who have lots their homes. But the temperature has dropped quite a bit in the last few hours which seems to have helped. They still can’t work out if the reports of a death are accurate, I guess they still can’t get into the area, and vision from the chopper is not helpful. Pretty scary though, we could see the fires from the city yesterday, not just smoke.

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).
