drank Christmas Afternoon by Twinings

Ok, I’m making a concerted effort to not forget about these teas this Christmas, particularly as I don’t have much else to do. Christmas Afternoon for dessert with milk and sugar (and some shortbread, because Christmas!). Definitely getting vanilla, a bit of cinnamon? Seems like a nice mellow black with a kiss of flavour.

I took some of the last of my guayusa to work for an early start this week. I was so confident that it was the Cider guayusa blend, I’d even labelled it as such. The lavender bits confused me, though, and when I came to review it from my steepster cupboard I discovered that it was, in fact, The Killer’s Vanilla. I found the Cider later that day in the pantry. Good, good.

I do really like this one, though, and I’m so glad I’ve still got some! I think I’ll save what I have left for now and switch to the Cider like I meant to drink in the first place.

Still drinking this, still enjoying it. I’ve reached the point where I’m not looking forward to finishing it.

Drat.

drank Packs a Peach by T2

Last week we got a couple of very summery days hit so I brewed up a big 2L of this bad boy with a bit of Turkish cherry thrown in to boot. Of course, it’s now cold again, because Hobart. HOWEVER, this is still delicious, if not a touch sweet. Didn’t need the cherry after all! I’ve been cutting it with soda water and that’s giving it a lovely fuzzy edge and taking off that sweetness.

Preparation
Iced

Tonight for some reason I reached for one of the greens I never reach for but have never been able to bring myself to throw out, considering they were beautiful and thoughtful gifts from a dear friend on the other side of the world.

It was an oolong. I very quickly remembered how much I do genuinely enjoy oolongs. Bloody heck. Maybe I’ll get through this little guy after all!

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 2 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 17 OZ / 500 ML

drank Go Go Goa by T2

Hello again my beautiful delicious angel! It’s a cold, rainy night and I’ve just restocked this blend so it’s absolutely the time for a big ol’ mug of it. YUM.

I’ve got so much writing to do for NaNoWriMo and a lot of procrastinating has been done. I’m going to see how much I can push myself to pump out this week and we’ll see if I can’t still do it. I am still really into my idea, it’s just pushing the words out that I’m struggling with a bit. Or am I? Maybe I’m just really procrastinating.

I love this tea so much, by a large part for the reason it was made just for me by a sweet friend! Its main flavour is peppermint, with floral touches around the edges, and its colour is the most remarkable thing. Best with a little splash of honey to sweeten the edges and holds well for a resteep or two!

drank Indian Spice by T2
941 tasting notes

Tonight I went to a T2 event to see the new Christmas products but mostly to get 15% off everything. I have a killer cold virus right now so I asked one of the girls what I should hit up and without hesitation she was like “Lemongrass & Ginger, guuuuurl” (it was totally already in my basket) “AND Indian Spice, brew them up together for like 20mins and shove a bunch of honey in there.”

So I did. Four teaspoons of L&G and two of Indian Spice and just so much honey and everything is ok now.

MY TEASTORY:

Grandad got me started young, white (a LOT of white) Irish breakfast with two.

I never strayed far from that until the world of T2 Tea came to Brisbane some years ago, and now I don’t know what I’d do without a pantry full of tea options.

These days I prefer to drink my teas straight without sweetener (though I appreciate some black variations shine better with milk and/or a dash of honey/sugar). I also love a speedy iced tea (hot brewed then poured over ice), and my latest obsession is cold brewing (which doesn’t make a lot of sense, as Australia is headed into winter and I live in the coldest corner of the country, but oh well).

I’d love to make a bunch of tea friends on here, especially those who can talk Aussie teas with me. I’ve recently come back from a jaunt to North America and it was a real hoot to hit up DAVIDsTEA after reading so many reviews! I wish I’d had the chance to get to more stores… but I’m happy with what I got back past customs. See those teas and my local jams in my reviews.

I LOVE:
+ black teas
+ white teas
+ oolongs
+ flavoured versions of all three of the above
+ herbal infusions and fruit tisanes

NOT A FAN:
+ most green teas
+ LICORICE ROOT (my sworn enemy) and aniseed flavours
