Good night, tea friends. I’m going surfing in my dreams.


I wish I was surfing. Sigh.


I wish I was going to bed. LOL

I continue to enjoy this one, enough so that I threw some of it into a jar to take into work. Lovely mellow black with just a touch of peach sweetness and just a touch of ginger bite. Yum.

drank Toasty Nougat by T2

Right, I went back in for round 2 with this guy this evening, using some of my cherished Blueberry Blush to complete this recipe: http://www.t2tea.com/recipes/blue-nougat-2/ but at a one-cup scale, so I had a heaped BB and around 3/4 TN.

Still not winning me over. Something bad-tart came out in this mix.

As it’s cooling it’s becoming a lot more palatable but the recipe has it served hot, so I did what I was told. No sweetener either—I can only imagine how much more bad-tart this would have turned with the addition of some lemon as recipe-suggested!

Two more recipes/chances, Toasty Nougat.

I found toasty Nougart a complete letdown unless it was iced & even then the quantity you needed to use was kind of outrageous for what was essentially a “mixer”. in the end i divided the rest of my box between toasty oolong and my chai mix. I was a bit surprised that they had recently upgraded TN to “the big tin” along with the likes of Geisha Getaway, Terrific Toffee. Someone must be using it and loving it…


Very weird that it’s in the big tin! I’m gonna try the other two recipes from the website and also try it iced, though it’s a bit silly that a blend called “toasty” is better iced. Tsk. Such a shame because it SMELLS divine.

By some accident I ended up with only this at work today—I’d had a few more options in my backpack but due to the current sipdown challenge I’d whittled away at them enough and forgotten to take more options this week. It was fine. It didn’t blow my mind but I enjoyed it enough. It was originally a gift from work so I guess it makes sense to be smashing through it at work.

Right, my box of this finally got opened tonight so I figured I may as well hit it for dessert!

And… bit of a letdown.

Though I must admit, I bought this as a blender, so now I just have to find the recipe that suggested this as an ingredient and maybe then we’ll be cooking with gas.

(I still want to eat this from the tin with a spoon, though.)

ETA: got it.

AND I have all those other teas. Perfect.

I don’t know. The more I drink this, the more I don’t particularly care for it. I tried to spruce it up with some ginger and lavender this evening. Am I mad?

Translating my ratings, at a glance:

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.


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.

+ black teas
+ white teas
+ oolongs
+ flavoured versions of all three of the above
+ herbal infusions and fruit tisanes

+ most green teas
+ LICORICE ROOT (my sworn enemy) and aniseed flavours
