Paradise-outta-my-stash, is more like it. I cold steeped what remained of my sample of this and took it to work with me. It smells amazing, but the hibiscus is just plain ridiculous. I couldn’t finish it. Sorry to say, this tea is definitely not for me.

I feel the same way about this tea; the sample I tried in-store when the Spring Collection just went up tasted really good (and I’m not a black tea fan), but I haven’t been able to brew it to taste as good on my own. I tend to find that’s the case with a lot of David’s teas, and I’ve found that some agave nectar smooths it out a bit and deals with the hibiscus, but it’s good to know someone else hasn’t been whelmed by this tea either.

Ah, tea. My love for you is ever changing. At my last update, I was all about the rooibos and now I hardly drink it. I only occasionally had an oolong and now I have one just about every day. I’ve learned the art of resteeping and coldbrewing and kombucha. I have a lovely little tea pet named…well, I haven’t decided on a name for him yet. I also have four live pets, a tabby cat named Rosabella Francis (Bella for short), a ginger cat named Orange Julius Pekoe (Pekoe), a white and grey cat named Earl Jean Grey (Earlie), and a red foot tortoise named Da Hong Pao (Pao). So if you see me referring to my girls, I don’t have kids, just animals.

As for tea, I love oolongs, herbals, and black tea. Since I am no longer working, I no longer feel the constant need for a mate energy boost, though I do still reach for it from time to time. I also drink less matcha, though I do throw a spoonful or two in when I’m making smoothies. Most of my tea I drink coldbrewed, and since I discovered coldbrewed rooibos was giving me headaches, I’m drinking less and less of it. Straight pu-erh is not a thing I enjoy, but there are a few flavored blends I like. Greens are still too finicky for me to bother with hot, but they make great cold brews.

I am by no means a tea purist. I greatly enjoy flavored teas and I put sugar in all of my teas. It’s just how I do.

I think I’m going to name my tea pet Mr. Turtle. Even though he’s a tortoise.
