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… :"|

drank Ayurvedic Passion by T2

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.

Some of my friends lost their cool over this limited edition blend so I snapped a box up for myself, and I’ve only just gotten around to unboxing (high five for a great selection of flavoured blacks open in time for cooler months!).

First mug with a splash of milk and I’m… underwhelmed. Or just… whelmed, I guess. I’m cold brewing some overnight and I’ll see if maybe plain (as recommended but I had milk to use up, ok) does it any more justice.

drank Ginger Spice by T2

Time to unbox an old favourite, just in time for a bout of cold weather. I was worried years of trying many and varied exciting teas would lessen my love for the old Ginger Spice, but boy howdy it seems like nothing’s gonna change my love for yooooou.

drank Twinkle Berry by T2

Ok yeah nah I’m getting brutal now I’m getting close to totally cleaning out my cupboard. Twinkle Berry, you just don’t cut it. Too tart. Chill with the hibiscus, mate. You’re gone.

Time to get through the last stocks of this blend, as much as I love it! I don’t think it ever got added to the permanent collection, which is sad. I polished off a full cold brew 2L jug in one day today so in goes another one overnight, and I polished off a regular old hot mug for dessert tonight too. Somebody stop me.

Love The Mask reference there :P

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
