Nope, I do not get the hullabaloo around the cocoa loco teas. Binning the rest of them. Glad they were small quantities to begin with.

Yikes, polished off two of my stalwart DT blends in as many days… I guess the cupboard IS getting bare. And yet when I stare in there it seriously doesn’t feel like there are still 60 teas in there. OH WELL.

WELL HALLELUJAH PRAISE THE LORD I guess next time I whinge about a tea being limited edition only I should check the online store, hey? This one’s been in an orange box (ie standard range!) for MONTHS now, and I couldn’t be happier. No longer need to worry about stretching out the last of this box I’ve got, time to slam it down!

A lot of the teas in my cupboard are a cup or two away from sipdown and this is exciting for me. I want to get under 50 and then maybe I’m allowed to start buying some new ones.

No, that’s ridicukous. Fifty teas are still too many.

But who am I kidding? We’re not on Steepster to have a small amount of teas.

Sil

haha my goal is to get to 50….this is down from a time when i was at 350+

Memily

lol Sil! I think that was around the time I first started following you… your cupboard was certainly a place to be reckoned with! You’re doing marvellously…

Sil

hahaha yeah… except the closer it gets to 50 the more i’m like but i have nothing to drink!

Memily

I know right, I’m going through the same thing! “But my choices are so limited!” We are idiots.

45-35 — this wasn’t the worst drink ever but I was disappointed; it didn’t live up to my expectations at all.
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
