drank Read My Lips by DAVIDsTEA
1468 tasting notes

Oh my God, this tea. I only got 10 grams to start…I didn’t think I’d like it. In fact, I was sure I wouldn’t like it, but since it’s so very popular, I figured I needed to at least give it a try. You see, I don’t like chocolate. It’s okay, but I don’t go crazy for it like most girls.

At first sip, I immediately regretted not buying more. It was a matter of days before I ran out and I was so very sad. It was love at first sip, the way everything worked together…so very yummy. I could see why it is everyone’s favourite. But for me, it satisfies my sweet tooth without being overly chocolatey.

My wife and I celebrated Valentine’s Day on Sunday to try and avoid the crowds a bit, but she braved the crowds of the local mall to take me to DavidsTea and buy one of their adorable love tins with 40 g of Read My Lips and four chocolates with Read My Lips-infused middles. Best Valentine’s Day gift ever!

Formerly aisling of tea, now you can call me ele .

“You can forgive a murder, but never a mistake while preparing tea.” Chinese proverb

Labels? Here you go: Femme, Wife, Lesbian, Homemaker, Happy. Don’t forget tea fanatic!

New label as of May, 2015: Diabetic. I’m using tea to satisfy my sweet tooth cravings and keep me hydrated without hurting my system or messing with my blood sugar.

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 five! 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), a tuxedo cat (and the only boy in the house) Prince Erik Darien Darjeeling (JiJi) 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 stevia 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.
