We weren’t sure about this one after smelling it in-store, but then we tried a sample and it was delicious! Very cooling, but not overwhelmingly pepperminty. I might take some of this to the parade with me today.

On a related note, I am so excited! I found some of those plastic ice cubes at Dollarama and now I can ice my tea quickly without watering it down!

Preparation
Iced
The Purrfect Cup

I’ve been thinking about ordering this one….would you suggest bitting the bullet and getting some.

aisling of tea

I would. Have you tried their Detox? It’s similar to that due to the juniper berries, but sweeter because of the apple.

The Purrfect Cup

I haven’t tried that one either. Was hoping to get up to Montreal this weekend, but that didn’t happen. :(

aisling of tea

Sad. I really enjoy both of them, and I often reach for detox after too much food or booze. It really does help me feel better.

Hmmm, I’m feeling a bit sun-strokey. Maybe I should have a cup of this before bed.

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.
