I love this tea. It’s fruity and creamy and just sweet enough for me. My wife thinks it’s too sweet, but it was one of the first DTs that my brother said I had to try if I hadn’t already. (Silly boy…of course I’ve had it before!) So I guess my family just runs a bit sweeter than hers ;). Anyhoo, I prefer this one in the summer, nice and cold….mmm. It’s so incredibly refreshing. But the wife and I are still really enjoying the ritual of sharing a pot of tea every morning…though I suspect we’ll be sharing our tea tomorrow evening, as we both have to get at work early. I’m opening it in the morning, though! Too many people are quick to review their teas and announce the daily tea from the advent calendar. I like the surprise, darn it!

This is one of the few that I don’t have and haven’t tried in the calendar. I really enjoyed it today. And I think there is enough left for 3 more cups. I think I need to buy this one.

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.
