I finally got some more of this in a round robin, and a dear friend is sending me some loose leaf of this as well! Yay! Even though I oversteeped and accidentally added too much milk, it’s still delicious! Super smooth, malty, and some bright sweetness- love!

I was so impressed with this tea! Glad to see it’s getting love overseas.

Do you know if it’s available/on sale in the U.S.?

I don’t think it is. I’m getting mine from a friend who has a sister in NZ, I believe, and from a round robin in a knitting group on Ravelry. When the round robin went around the first time, I took a couple of the bags of this, as it sounded yummy and unusual. When it came around the second time, with MORE NZ tea added, I snagged a couple more and sent out a message to the group, begging the owner of the NZ tea to ‘hook me up’ with her source. lol

Sandy lived there. Maybe she has a connection who will send it to us. Sandy?

If sources still aren’t plentiful in a couple months, I’d be happy to help out. Apologies that I can’t stick my hand up immediately :(

Bio

I’m at-home mother of 4, married 10 years. Tea, like knitting, is therapy for me. It’s a short reprieve from things that frustrate me. And it’s much cheaper than actual therapy. I was raised by my grandparents, both of whom enjoyed a good cup of tea, and they were already set in their ways by the time I came along. They had their tea all picked out, and we drank the same thing pretty much all the time. I just recently started branching out after discovering some new teas in a Round Robin I participated in on Ravelry(my other safe haven where my knitting progress lives), and I’ve been experimenting ever since. I recently tried my first loose leaf, Twinings Irish Breakfast, and I’ve also been getting some samples from Chado Teas. Every time I get a box or packet in the mail it’s like Christmas!

Aside from tea, my life consists of normal mommy-type stuff, of course, and I have 2 girls ages 7 and 9, and two boys ages 3 and 5. But I also enjoy photography, knitting, reading, writing, making collages, and tending to the farm. Did I mention I have 2 horses, goats, chickens, a pig, ducks, working dogs, and a couple of cats? We LOVE animals around here. I also love Dr. Who, many British comedies such as Are You Being Served?, and sarcasm. I suffer from depression and anxiety, hence the need for things to keep my hands busy and my mind on task, and I also have a sensory disorder, which includes a strong aversion to jeans and jean-like materials.

My favorite teas so far:

-Heredia Lemon Verbena
-Chai anything(except Stash, which is, for some reason, quite bland to me)
-Twinings Irish Breakfast
-Twinings Pure Mint
-Numi Aged Earl Grey
-Twinings New Zealand Breakfast
-Twinings Lady Grey

I will add more as I come across them, and some of these will probably fall off the list in favor of others I may prefer.
