Why do I keep trying green flavoured teas when I know I won’t properly enjoy most of them?

LOL… you are not alone!

I love green tea and I also find that the flavored ones are often disappointing. :(

Definitely a stronger citrusy take on an earl grey. Quite nice black or with a dash of milk.

A nice herbal with some interesting flavours but nothing that makes me want to restock it immediately. Glad I got the opportunity to try it!

Lapsang Souchong has to be bacon/smoke tea for me, just an assault to the senses. This one wasn’t. It’s not bad, but considering how much I like their take on russian caravan, I wanted a lot more from this. BACON ME!

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
