drank Sunny by More Tea

And with the last glass from the 2L jug, Sunny’s all out! I can’t believe I’m under 50. I’m a girl on a mission. Nothing can stop me. I can’t even stop myself.

Sunny was great, definitely best iced or cold brewed, sweet and fruity and super enjoyable. But I’m hesitant to order from More Tea again, because I got three blends from them (as well as the beautiful but delicate glass tea bottle) and Sunny was the only one I liked—the other two blends were blerg. More Tea don’t sell samples so without being able to try before I buy, I don’t think I’ll be back. They didn’t even respond to my mail asking about samples. Sigh.

I finished up my sample with two big cups. This one walks a nice line between tasty and soothing, I’d get this back into stock.

SERIOUSLY T2 WHY DID THIS GLORIOUS BEAST NOT GET ADDED TO THE STANDARD LINE. I’m still horrified. I finally deigned to open my precious saved box of this the other day (I really AM sipping down the cupboard, yikes!) and was a little worried that it wouldn’t be as great as I remembered (happens a bit).

NOPE.

Still fabulous and amazing and I want to never run out but I’m SAD BECAUSE ONE DAY I WILL.

Have already had this hot (YUM) and have a whole 2L cold brewed jug too.

Close to a sipdown for this! One cup left now. And I’ve realised I don’t have that many straight blacks in the cupboard… only a couple of those to go and I’ll have to restock one.

I drank a delicious pot of this today. I can’t imagine preparing it any other way than on the stove. I never want to run out of it.

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
