I’ve been keeping jugs of various teas in my fridge, now that summer has finally come along, though they’ve mostly been herbals and the like. I keep trying to get my wife to taste them, and she does, and then she tells me she doesn’t like iced tea. Fair enough, gonna be a long summer without it for her. I can’t imagine drinking hot tea in the summer.

We stopped in DavidsTea the other day to drop off a resume and try some Jungle Ju Ju, and this was the tea of the day…iced. My wife takes one sip and says “Ooooh, this is really good iced.”

So, this is my new jug-o-iced-tea in our fridge. I’m drinking the leftover bit from the teapot I brew it in, it won’t all fit in the jug (I have a 1.5 L teapot that I brew one pot of tea in, pour it into the jug, and then make another pot with the same leaves. This second steep usually leaves about a liter of tea behind, which is what I’m drinking now). It is delicious. I can really taste the almond in this cup, and it’s not a bad thing, it mixes well with the peach. I think this tea and I will have a good relationship this summer.

Oh, how I wish I could say I “stopped in DavidsTea the other day to drop off a resume.”

I’m dearly hoping I’ve come across as “Someone who loves tea” and not “That batshit crazy tea lady” XD

While we were in DavidsTea on Saturday one of the sales clerks (our favourite :D) came in to work and knew us instantly. We go there too much. : ) Good luck!

haha I’m sure they will love you! and I’m pretty sure they think that it’s me who is the “batshit crazy tea lady” no stealing my title now!! :P

Almost all of the workers there know us on sight, so we’ve made some kind of impression, at least!

I tend to frequent all the locations so I’m not sure they would know me… but they do know me at Teaopia in the Path! I would so love to have that job

The workers at my local DT definitely recognize me now.. I show up and I hear them saying to each other – hey there’s the guy that really likes black tea – and the last time I went in one girl gave me a personal recommendation for their new very limited Darjeeling First Flush … the other girl working there at the time said “I think you’re the customer who knows the most about tea” – I said people have told me I should work there, she said “yeah! you wouldn’t need much training..” :)

I tried this one iced at DT and wasn’t all that impressed (was too weak for me), but I love it hot! I’ve been into the DT that just opened up across the street from where I work (and is the closest one to home, yay!) probably 5 times in the last week? They’re starting to recognize me I think xD

I’d love to work there – hang out with awesome people, drink tea all day…

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.
