The last of my sample from Scheherazade — thank you! I’ve really enjoyed this.

Today I brewed it with a bit of milk and sugar, after having to accept that not every single tea will shine best as a plain unsweetened beast. I’m being rewarded for my milk and sugar efforts today! This was a delicious dessert treat.

Yum. I honestly find a lot of flavoured teas do shine best with a touch of sugar added. It just draws out the flavours a little more, I think.

I think you might be right! And milk can enhance the creaminess. Darn, trust me to have a lot of flavoured black favourites…

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
