Oh, matcha, I have missed you as well. It’s been ages since I last had matcha and so this morning I had to break into it. It was overwhelmingly MATCHA, so much so that I’m having trouble finding the flavor, but that due to my own palate being out of use. I mixed this with some french vanilla matcha and vanilla agave and it is lovely.

Oh there’s that matcha buzz. I am off to clean all the things!!

I have been craving this for WEEKS and when I couldn’t find it the other day, I nearly cried. But I found it! Oh Joy, my Orange Blossom is in my greedy little hands again! It’s so creamy and yummy and wonderful. I found brown sugar cubes at our new grocery store and they add a sweet depth to this tea that makes me wish I had bothered to wash my mason jar instead of settling for my favorite perfect mug. It’s been an awful day, but this little love has made it much better.

After spending my morning on Steepster and wandering over two or three Milk Oolong review, I knew just what tea I needed to make when I got around to it. I couldn’t find my DavidsTea Milk Oolong, but I knew exactly where this one was and I am not in any way disappointed. It’s so creamy and fresh and delicious…Milk Oolongs will always have a special place in my heart. And I even took a break from my mason jar mug gasp So yummy…I can’t seem to put it down.

This new mug is the love of my life. Seriously, I’ve not used anything else since I got it. As a Southern girl living in Toronto, this behemoth is a dream come true. And it’s huge! Which is awesome, but I would not recommend trying a new tea in this because if you don’t like it, you’ve still got 25 ounces t drink XD. The infuser is just as big, which is great, but a touch hard to clean. It’s heavy and stable and looks great in my collection. I recommend it to everyone and anyone.

I hope to get it for the summer to cold steep smaller amounts of tea, rather than huge pitchers, for when I just want a few servings.

Roswell Strange

I’m cold steeping in it right now!

Fjellrev

Actually, yeah, that’s a pretty good size for cold steeps since I sometimes find my 2L jug too much (and always feel obligated to fill it all the way up). Yet, I can’t help but associate mason jars with hipsters haha.

Cavocorax

I like the idea of this, but the 25 oz thing makes me hesitate! I guess you’d probably run through more leaf this way because after drinking 25oz, you will NOT want to resteep and do it again! But for teas I won’t resteep anyways…. it could be really awesome!

Roswell Strange

Meh, I hardly ever resteep as is. I usually only resteep if someone else suggests it, for some (most) of my oolongs, and some whites. I dislike greens – so it’s weird enough when I crave one cup a green tea, two is just too much. I’m definitely burning through more leaf (easier sipdowns) this way, though.

Cavocorax

Hmmm… You bring up some very good points. I may succumb to this tomorrow when I hit a DAVIDsTEA! (I’m buying 20g samples of tea or my sister in law who’s just getting started! So exciting!)

Do it, do iiiiiit. You won’t regret it. And eeee, isn’t it fun to bring someone into tea? My friends call me a “tea pusher” because I’ve done it so often.

Cavocorax

Haha. And yes, it’s AWESOME to bring someone into tea, even if it’s for the very selfish reason that I want someone else to talk tea with.

And I succumbed. I totally succumbed. :D

I am an idiot. No, seriously. We sat down to a yummy pancake breakfast, and as I opened the butter, I could smell something rancid. I sniffed the butter and it turns out, yup, it was the butter. Fast forward to me getting distracted by yummy pancakes, slathering them with said butter.

Combine that with my lactose intolerance and I am Not Feeling Well. Luckily we found our tin of this little beaut and my sweet wife is keeping up a steady supply for me. It calms my tummy right down and I love the taste. Not to mention it makes my cat SUPER cuddly XD.

Yvonne

Ergh!! Gross. Sorry you had to experience that :(

Fjellrev

Oh no, I don’t even think I’ve smelled rancid butter before, let alone ingest it. I hope you’ll feel better!

TheTeaFairy

Yuck, I hate butter, to think of a rancid version makes my stomach turn…good thing your thoughtful wife keeps some good tea around for you, feel better :-)

I love this tea. I looooove this tea. And I love this company! I asked if they had ANY of this tea left, because I drank the last of it today. They managed to find 8 oz of it and I bought them all! It’s so good, it’s my cinnamon go to. I love it! It full of cinnamony goodness and love.

Oh, I love this tea. It’s all about the tried-and-true favorites for me today, it seems. Big glass of this baby and I’m loving every sip…especially now that it has cooled off. Our new condo is so freaking hot all the time that hot tea just wasn’t doing it for me. Seriously, it’s been way below freezing here in Toronto for weeks and we’ve had the heat off, the building is just that hot. So I’ve got some teas cold steeping and I let this tea cool down and it is glorious. All blueberries, all the time. Makes me want to make a blueberry pie!

drank Amaretto by DAVIDsTEA

Hello old friend, I have missed you. We’ve been moving to a new place and most of our teas were packed up about 3-4 months ago, so I’m glad to have them in my hot little hands again. I’ve been craving Orange Blossom for days, but the tin is in a box we haven’t found yet, so this is a lovely substitute. It is a touch weak, but I blame the massive mason jar mug and my impatience in steep time. Still, it’s like falling into the most delicious almond cookie. This will always be a favorite of mine.

TheTeaFairy

Wow, long time no see, welcome back!!

Thanks! Job got hectic and then we moved and steepster just fell by the wayside. But now I’m happily back to being a full time housewife, so expect to see a lot more of me in the future!

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.
