Ok, I think this is a tea I’ll have around for medicinal purposes, not enjoyment purposes. It tastes fine but doesn’t really have anything I’d seek out for tea-based happy times.

Preparation
2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

drank Coffee Cake by DAVIDsTEA

Hay gurl haaaaay. I didn’t have any milk left in the fridge tonight when I felt like a warm milky bedtime tea… but I DID have some cream. How decadent!

Big fan of Coffee Cake, but I need to slow down on my intake of it—I’m running out, and I still have so many other teas, a lot I haven’t even logged yet! Speaking of, I followed ashleyelizabeth’s lead and added all my teas to my cupboard. All of them. Even the samples. Help, I am overwhelmed. Time to focus on some sipdowns, I reckon!

But for now, bedtime. Sleep-in tomorrow, too!

1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

drank Raspberry Rush by T2

Hot tip: sweet combination of Raspberry Rush and Apple Crumble doesn’t hold up through a third infusion. I guess I’m asking a bit much trying to steep a black tea a third time!

Had a first strong and delicious infusion of this for breakfast, then added a scoop of T2 Apple Crumble for my second infusion… um, YUM.

This is such a wonderful warm hug of a dessert tea. A touch of sweetener in the hazelnut brittle but apart from that it’s a tart baked good in liquid form.

Picked today because I still had a sample kicking around from when T2 had run out of stock and samples were all I could get! But it’s back in stock as of a couple of weeks ago so I’ve got a cheeky unopened box at home now too.

Also picked because I forgot to pack any infusers or steepers in my bag today and Apple Crumble’s got big chunks I can filter out with my teeth ;)

Love the “warm hug” metaphor. I’ve had that feeling from tea before, too.

Yes! I get it from all those nutty/sweet combo teas, like this and DAVIDsTEA’s Forever Nuts… just super cosy snuggly teas.

drank Gold Rush (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
701 tasting notes

I decided to own up and add all my still-sealed boxes of tea to my cupboard. I had them in there for a while, took them out again, and now I’ve added them back. What do y’all do?

Anyway, to help with the stress and guilt of an extra twenty or so teas in my cupboard, I drank some Gold Rush. It was delicious.

Flavors: Caramel

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 8 min or more

I add everything I have to my cupboard, even samples. I add them as soon as I order them, I dont even wait til I get them because im so excited But if it stresses you out, dont feel obligated. It’s more for you than anyone else.

Memily

That would probably help me drink more of my samples, to be quite honest…

drank Choconut Oolong by DAVIDsTEA

Yeah ok second infusion was just licorice on top of licorice. Maybe it’s all in my head. Wait nope I just read a handful of reviews and I’m not alone in the licorice root sadness. Hurrah!

Flavors: Licorice

Oh my glob, this is a treat. My first sip of this burned down my throat and warmed my chest like whisky. How odd!

The only thing that distracted me from the glorious warmth of this drink was the hint of licorice. I can’t help it, that ingredient just rubs my taste buds the wrong way. I got this as a sample with an online order and due to the licorice I wouldn’t go back for more.

Flavors: Licorice

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 10 OZ / 295 ML

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
