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!

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.

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.
