Getting rid of the oldest tea in my cupboard! I guess I’m not particularly drawn to matcha, unless it’s in an almond milk shake or a latte. I’m not afraid to admit that!

I brought this stuff to work to finish it off via lattes (seeing as it’s the middle of winter and not really milkshake weather) but the matcha’s gotten pretty gritty and grainy. I lasted two lattes and threw the rest out. It DID say best before July 2015 on the bottom, but I’d say it was actually a bit earlier than that, even kept in the sealed container it came in.

Finished this off via cold brews full of juicy berry flavours! Happy happy tea. Me likey. But I’ve got one too many flavoured blacks to get through so I probably won’t restock this for a while…

Glad to go out on a high note with this one, after I remembered to throw it in my bag last night for my early start at work today—AND remembered to get it out of my bag this morning instead of going for the coffee machine, as has happened in the past. Two li’l teapots of Good Morning Sunshine have definitely given me the same pep to my step that coffee does, which is always good to note.

I’m really enjoying working Saturday mornings, it’s so nice to get out of work in the middle of the afternoon and have the city to explore! I wonder where I’ll have lunch today?

Sometimes you just need a cup of your favourite. Finished work an hour and a half ago, back in nine hours… that’s when I need a cup of my favourite. I do love my job!

Another sample grabbed so I could quickly make a decision on low stocks… another big shrug from me. Masala chai flavours with extra peppercorn and chilli, eh.

Grabbed a sample of this today because the friendly T2 staffer told me they only had two tins of it left to sell. I tried it tonight and eh, it’s just another chai with some sweetness thrown at it. ¯\(ツ)

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
