Advent calendar day 11. This is one of the few teas I’ve had that gets the hibiscus blend right. There’s enough for you to taste the flavour, but not too much that it goes really tart. The other flavours are appley and cinimony, like Forever Nuts as others have described. I’ve enjoyed having another cup or so of this in the advent calendar this year.

I went to Melbourne for a long weekend about 6 weeks ago, and went to the Oriental Tea House about 4 times and tried lots of their teas, both full cups and testers. This was a delicious iced tea they had for testing, so much so that I had to grab a box to bring home. The other half and I have been having this iced in the last little while quite a bit, we’ve almost gone through the whole 100g! Looks like an order might be needed…

So what does it taste like? Sweet and refreshing and very tasty. So good as an iced tea. If you order from the Oriental tea house or live in Melbourne, I’d definitely recommend checking it out.

Will probably be doing a bit of backlogging on some of their other offerings today, but in general, OTH do lovely teas, so I’d recommend a look if you’re interested. The yum cha is also good!

Just finished this off as a giant jug of iced tea in my takeya flash chill set on a balmy 32oC afternoon. Lovely and cooling.

Had the other half make me a mug of this when I got up. So comforting!

Made a glass of this when I got home at about 9 last night and it was still about 25oC. Didn’t end up drinking it but I left it in the fridge overnight and it’s lovely this morning. Hmmm,mm…….

This was the other tea I took to my yoga workshop. This was also well received, lots of appreciation for the berry taste, and a few people said how nice it would be in the height of summer.

I did a yoga workshop at my barre studio yesterday, and took in a tayeka jugful of this iced. It was well received! They were mostly tea novices, and for many of my classmates, it was the first time they’d had a green that hadn’t been burned and all bitter tasting. Lots of nodding when I explained the prefered steeping temperature for greens… I think endorsements from tea novices is always a good sign.

Had this iced this morning. Just lovely! Would never have thought of icing chai until I went to the Oriental Tea House in Melbourne a week and a half ago. Nice idea to be able to drink chais in summer. Yummo.

Finished this one off last night. Dear me its tasty. The ultimate dessert tea. If you’ve been thinking of doing an RHTB order, I’d strongly recommend this one. Will definitely re-order.

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).
