And finally, tea #3 served in the pot at girls’ CAH day yesterday.

I’m really going to miss this one.

Why oh why did I serve a whole pot of it!? Hahahaha.

(Because it’s delicious and a surefire hit.)

Tea #2 served in the pot at ladies’ CAH day! And I’m almost out of this one now. It’s a wonder what a pot full of tea will do to your stocks…

Tea #1 served in the pot at my girls’ CAH game day yesterday went down a treat. I can’t believe I’ve only got a little bit of this left—I surprised myself!

Tried this cold brewed and it’s basically just a glass of cinnamon. Nah, that’s supposed to be a flavour hint, not a feature. This one’s getting gifted to my cinnamon-loving friend.

Ok, giving this guy another go (nowhere near the vicinity of Hello Sweetie so I don’t get biased again) and loaded up with a bit of sugar and too much cream, this is a dreamy blend.

My only issue is that with those beautiful big twiggy black leaves, it can kinda be hard to measure out an accurate spoonful…

Ah, the spoonful dilemma. Somebody needs to develop a spoon designed to measure those big leaves!

This one can get a liiiiittle astringent if steeped too long, but that’s my own fault.

I just noticed tonight that my cream expires in the next couple of days so let’s bring on some delicious black teas tonight and get way too much caffeine in my body before bed!

YAY

45-35 — this wasn’t the worst drink ever but I was disappointed; it didn’t live up to my expectations at all.
30-0 — I didn’t enjoy this tea and that makes me sad.

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
