Oh, damnit.

I hate it when a limited edition blend is really good.

I’ve been hoarding this in the cupboard since January but when I ran out of Gone Surfing it was time to bust this open and I’m reminded of exactly why I snatched it up when I could, because it’s great.

It’s sweet, much sweeter than Gone Surfing, but herbal sweet (NOT licorice root sweet) and still zippy and calming and I’m in love with it.

So annoyed.

Pester them to make it not-limited so it can live in your cupboard forever! Who knows, they might bring it back!


They only do that rarely :( this one isn’t one I’ve seen much mention of by others on their Facebook page either, so I don’t really have high hopes. Plus it’s been a while since it was even in stock! I don’t mind. I’ll enjoy it while I have it.


Sweet Dreams has been a member of T2’s permanent tea range for nearly 8 months now, happy sipping!


Oh this is amazing news!

Ah, here we go! Bit of flavour here, glad I finished my samples with this one rather than Brains or I would have walked away with a lesser impression. So, yes, good. This is one I’d consider restocking if I didn’t have to try all the other tea in the world first.

Now that I’m all out of my beloved Gone Surfing I can put more focus into trying and/or finishing the other relaxing herbals I’ve got. Starting with this one, because I’m not that fussed with it. It’s a bit too tart, I think? I think that’s what it is.

Eh, this tastes like barely nothing. We’ll see if I can write a phd after it but whatever.


Love the name of this tea! It made me giggle:P And man, it is perfect for phd writings:P


Yeah the name is the most charming thing about it! This company seems to have an I AM naming trend but this is the one that makes me giggle. I AM BRAINS DRINK ME

My favourite way to see out a tea from the cupboard is with a big ol’ damn pot of it.

Good job.

Adding this to the wish list to remind me to restock it one day! Yes, I enjoyed it that much—and it’s a locally blended one, so extra good as far as I’m concerned.

After three and a half hours of broken sleep, I gave up around 6am and made myself a never ending pot of this in my lovely new teapot—bought yesterday on sale after lusting after it for months through the window at Freedom. I’m really delighted with it; it pours like a dream (my only frustration is that no infuser fits in it, so it’s full of loose leaves—hence the never ending pot though).

Spending my morning curled on the couch with my cat, a good book, and a never ending pot of tea can’t be all bad. Or even a bit bad.

Oh lawd oh lawd oh lawd. I finally let myself open my restocked packet of this tonight after my first encounter via Monstrositea and my toes are curling with happiness.

You know when you’re so fond of a tea that even as soon as you’ve opened it, you’re sad to think of it being gone? I get like that over a few of mine… this one in particular because it’s a rare beauty I won’t easily restock, being that Monstrositea’s heroine brought a small amount back from India with her and I think it may all be sold out from her store already.

But considering how happy I am right now, if there’s any still left I think I’m just gonna have to buy it.


interesting… so jealous of the tea shops you have access to


And vice-versa, Sil! The grass may always be greener ;)

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
