I must just have a really weird palate.

This blend isn’t heavy enough for a breakfast blend, in my belief, but it’s crazy tasty. It’s lovely and delicate, malty on its own but once a bit of sugar and cream is added, I’m getting buttered popcorn and toffee.

Maybe it’s because I’ve only had four hours sleep?

Thanks to Stacy for the sample! Yum.

Drinking this is never a good sign. I’m about to have friends come visit for a week, too. Thanks, immune system.

A big cup of this in bed this morning with a dash of sugar and cream means who needs coffee to start the day today? Not me! Ah, I love late shift.

The cream flavour in this tea is really dragged out with a dash of sugar, which also helps to get rid of the slight astringency of a 4min steep.

And then it’s even better with a dash of cream thrown on top (and yet surprisingly still nice and creamy without the cream, but we all know cream is a hero).

Long live the cream! <3

Fun and fruity. I’m running out of this and while I’m not traumatised (ie it’s a 90, not a 95), I’ll still be sad to finish it up. Gotta try a cold brew before it’s done, as I’m interested to see how the bamboo comes out.

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
