I returned to a cup of this after a long break from it and today it was delicious, plus I got some very sweet, fruity notes from the cup today. I love finding different flavours. It actually surprised me compared to what I remembered of it.

drank Yerba Mate by Cruz de Malta

I’m so glad to have finally tried a straight yerba. (Shouldn’t we just call it yerba if it’s not in a mate?)

Classic choice from Monstrositea and the fourth of four from the August box. Hooray for this! Glad to finally try it after being curious (and yet hesitant) for so long. I have gladly found that I really enjoy it.

drank Australian Sencha by Tea Leaves

My first taste of this sample was pretty negative, but I had some (recommended) dried pineapple in there with it. I think it was the dried pineapple that threw me off, actually. I gave it another go sans additions and it was much more like a Sencha I’m used to, but with the guts of an Aussie-grown blend in there. Interesting.

I’m going to try the last of this Monstrositea sample with some other Sencha I’ve got in my cupboard. (Then I’ll be able to sip down some more Sencha too, which is good for someone who isn’t often drawn to drinking greens.)

drank Alabaster by Scullery Made

A big pot of this while having a foot pampering afternoon was just the right choice.

Look after your toots, toots.

Foot pampering and tea certainly go hand in hand :D

drank The Earl of Lemon by DAVIDsTEA

I really like this one as a refresher, a palate cleanser. I don’t really get any of those yoghurt/creamy notes but that might be due to the age of the blend? In any case I really don’t mind; I’m a fan.

Rediscovered my enjoyment of this blend lately and am quickly getting through the last of the supply that ashleyelizabeth sent on my fateful first Steepster swap!

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
