This is the only herbal tea that I have at work, everything else is black! Well ok and rooibos but I find you have to be in the right mood for rooibos…

I need to remember to bring some more herbal offerings for afternoons at work next week. Because I’m almost out of this Monstrositea sample! That will be sad, I’ve enjoyed this. Better open an Ayurvedic box of T2 stuff soon to step in.

Today I’m drinking half ten, half eleven (thanks to Scheherazade and her generous swappage). I want to call it “sandshoes & grandad”, either that or 10.5 I guess?

I like Eleven—I like the flavours in it. A little touch of sweetener and milk makes Eleven just lovely. (I like him a little more with Ten, though. This is all reflecting my feelings on the actual doctors, which makes me grin.)

A super-yum desserty tea that needs no sweetening. Repeat: no sweetening. I was still on my milk & sugar kick when I first tried my sample from Scheherazade yesterday and it was so sweet I almost died. No joke. I ALMOST DIED. (Ok I’m exaggerating.)

Today I’m drinking half ten, half eleven. I want to call it “sandshoes & grandad”, either that or 10.5 I guess? Did ten’s clone left with Rose even have an official name? I really gotta go back and watch that season again, and bawl my eyes out again. That’d be fun.

A lot gutsier with a higher temperature and some more leaves… but that’s probably understandable? I added too much sugar though :( wasn’t quite a teaspoon but still too much for this lady.

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), and I also love a speedy iced tea.

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.
