I’d like more flavour from this Monstrositea sample… let’s see how the cold steep in the fridge goes overnight.

I made up a jug of iced tea of this the other day when my friend came around for afternoon tea but it was too stinking hot to have anything hot. I threw in a bunch of actual delicious cherries, and then I drank the leftovers today (I think it was… it was four days ago she was over). WHAT A DIFFERENCE! Actual cherries steeping in this tea made a world of deliciousness.

It’s been a long while between cups of this, but I got a free box a few months ago and I’m glad of that because I’ve got a rotten head cold at the moment and a mug of this is making me feel better.

It’s my birthday and I’m finally letting myself drink the last of my favourite supply because Sil’s gonna hook me up with some more, to my great relief. Excellent, excellent birthday treat today. Love you forever, Fantasy Island.

More delicious than I was expecting it to be as a cold brew, thank you! Better up the rating a bit as appreciation. It comes out nice and fruity and of course the green doesn’t get too bitey.

Aw yeah, reaching into the back of the hoarder cupboard now! New goal: when I’ve got 25 teas or less, I’m doing my first ever Whispering Pines order. If that won’t stir me on to greatness, nothing will.

Dustin

25 teas?! That is quite a goal! How far away are you from that?

Translating my ratings, at a glance:

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
