Ok, this blend wins a 100% boost from its first rating because I’ve just made a cold steeped blend that I am totally in love with and it was one of the ingredients.

I used:
4tsp this blend
2tsp Monstrositea Mint
2tsp T2 Turkish Apple powder
1tsp Monstrositea Lavender
1tsp (or maybe 2tsp?) T2 Just Ginger
in around 1.8L water (didn’t quite fill the 2L jug)

And it is a world of deliciousness. So refreshing! I’m really happy with this creation, particularly as I don’t play scientist very often. I’m so happy with this that I’m gonna have to get some more lemongrass & ginger to recreate it! But maybe another company’s blend. Sorry Truly. <3

T2 has one, and you won’t have to order it online. :D

Yeah but T2 are owned by Unilever these days :( trying to support small Aussie businesses going forward.

Jeez, are they really?

If you’re ever in Sydney, I know of a small tea shop (in a very pretty shopping center) run by a little elderly Chinese man. Maybe I’ll go there tomorrow.

Yep, as of about nine months ago. It broke my heart! I was a loyal T2er until then. Even now I find it hard to avoid wandering through their beautiful store but am branching out and trying to find alternatives to their blends where I can. It’s a challenge!

There are a few awesome Sydney tea shops I’ve found in my googling (I’m down in Hobart but sestra is in Sydney). Definitely go visit that adorable-sounding tea man!

It’s in The Strand, which is off Pitt St Mall in the city.

I am kinda crazy about the first tea from the Monstrositea July box.

I love a good caffeine-free evening option and I’m also a sucker for a placebo like the “calming effects” touted with this. I’m a skeptic but I want to believe. In any case, it’s a pretty great blend of ingredients done well enough that I don’t even pick up on any obnoxious licorice root flavour—normally it overwhelms my tastebuds. It’s got me saying ooh, girl.

Oh, so the 2L I cold steeped in the fridge was actually the last I had of this, go figure! Still drinking down that 2L but being a bit imaginative with it. Bumping up the rating too because I think I added a little extra to finish my stock but it’s come out quite strong. So!

Tonight I’m drinking it as a tea pop, spliced with soda water. It’s amazing, actually. Best way I’ve drunk it yet! And while I’ve had fun with this, I won’t be restocking it.

It’s got licorice and I don’t hate it.

A TRUE MIRACLE

Finally had some of this as a cold brew after throwing a bunch of it in the big Takeya 2L jug when my friends were here. Yum. Very tart and such a dark red! I’m better there’s a lot of hibiscus in this blend, as well as those berries.

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

Hobart, Australia
