Again, I thought I’d made a mistake when I tried a blend of this and Turkish cherry tisane. But then I iced it and I remembered that I love it.

drank Turkish Cherry by T2
918 tasting notes

After writing yesterday about the blend that inspired me to buy this tisane, I had to drink it today! I learnt very quickly that the candy cane blend (half peppermint, half Turkish cherry) is NOT something I’m a fan of when served hot. But add ice and I love it. I LOVE IT. YUM!

drank Chaud Les Marrons! by Lupicia
918 tasting notes

Today was beautiful and cold in Hobart (it’s summer… it snowed on the mountain last night?) and my friend came over for the afternoon to binge-watch Reign. I offered her this or DT Love Tea #7. She asked for both… at the same time. Half and half in the pot. Lovely! This really mellowed the sometimes overwhelming sweetness of the #7 beautifully.

Aaaaand I couldn’t help but finish off the last of this tonight. About half a tsp sugar added to this made it ridiculously sweet; I wish I’d tried it before adding the sugar! But this was definitely a nice brew and I’m glad I got the sample, even gladder I read the ingredients the other day and realised I wanted to drink this ASAP.

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 15 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 250 ML

Forgot to drink this on Sunday! =P Nah, it’s better today with my strawberry cheesecake doughnut. MUCH better.

Forgot that I already tried cold brewing this sample and promptly cold brewed it again. Luckily I have a scoop left to try hot!

This time I overbrewed and the ginger is a bit too prevalent (I’ve discovered there’s ginger in here. Hahaha). It’s still very nice but just remember this is one you shouldn’t overbrew! Maybe 12hrs max for cold brewing.

drank Turkish Apple by T2
918 tasting notes

I don’t ever drink these turkish tisanes by themselves, because it’s basically like drinking sugar. Which is a bit weird. However, I love having them to sweeten iced brews, rather than using boring old regular sugar.

I don’t use them a LOT, but I’ve been icing a bit more lately and that reminded me to leave a tasting note. I’ll try to remember to update tasting notes each time they get thrown into a jug with another blend.

Preparation
Iced
VariaTEA

That’s an awesome idea for these types of tea! I will have to try that sometime :)

I buckled and bought the cherry before Christmas when T2 finally had another tea society event (it had been SO LONG) and they had on a Christmas-themed brew they called “candy cane”, which I THINK was just peppermint and turkish cherry. It was fresh and delicious and I gave in and bought it.

I’ve since used it just recently with Rabbit Hole’s Ruby Zing, which was a bit too zingy and needed to be sweetened out (thanks hibiscus). A couple of scoops of turkish cherry into the 2L jug made it absolutely delicious.

I’ll try to remember to add a tasting note each time I splice it with something!

I have such a variety of the tisanes from when I went to turkey and I would have never thought to use them this way.

I hope this opens up your tisane world! ;)

Oh gosh, it’s beautiful as a cold brew, too.

This time I was reminded of my recent overbrewed mistake with white tea and so these leaves only got soaked for 4-5 hours. The drink came out beautifully blushed pink and cloudy, with a strong scent of berries, the taste echoing the scent and adding coconut and chocolate.

This is so, so good.

(Considering the raspberry and coconut laden through this, I clearly have a Type. Looking at you, Fantasy Island.)

Flavors: Chocolate, Coconut, Raspberry

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more 2 tsp 15 OZ / 450 ML

100 — CRITICAL OBSESSION LEVEL REACHED; CAN YOU MARRY TEA!?
95 — this must always be in my pantry. forever.
90 — excellent! you need to try this tea!
85 — very good! you should try this tea!
80-70 — I enjoyed this and will happily drink it again.
65-50 — Fine. Unremarkable.
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
