HAY GIRLIE! It sure has been a while!

I know I was dead set on sipping down my stocks, but in doing so I’ve come a little off balance (I need more black teas in my life than what I have left!) and T2 had a ridiculous sale where I picked up 250g of this (and a free tin) for only $20. I’m sorry but I can’t argue with that.

Also, it’s been so long and I forgot how much I enjoyed this.

There goes the last of this one! I noticed earlier today when I made up my teapot that I had enough of this blend for just one more big mug, so that’s dessert tonight. Sweet and milky like I’m currently hooked on.

It’s Day Off Teapot Day! This week I’m rolling with the Banana Bake (or as I have labelled it in my cupboard, “bake de banane”). Sweet milky tea is just my jam lately. I’ve reverted to childhood!

Buhduhlum… dum… dum. Another one bites the dust.
I enjoyed this while it lasted but I wouldn’t bother restocking.

No milk in the house to let me carry on my milky bedtime tea kick, so tonight I went for the next best thing.

ETA: HAHAHA I just saw my last note for this tea “about a year ago” mentioned my goal of a Whispering Pines order once I got my cupboard under 25 teas left. I’m… still striving for that goal… :"|

Whoops, cold brewed another jug of this blend for an extra day or two, which was a mistake. Green tea error! Mellowing it out with some extra water should do the trick. I mustn’t forget to try this hot.

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
