Happily drank down the last of this tonight, knowing that more can be obtained in the future if need be. Ah, the joy of a limited edition tea blend being added to the standard range.

drank Blackberry by The Art of Tea

Right, I’ve been through a 50g box of this now and I’ve gotta say, I’m a fan. Very nice. Just sweet enough to not need sugar(no sugar, no, makes it crazy sweet, big mistake) and what I discovered with the very last of the box today is that a 24hr cold brew tastes amazing with a shot of gin. So that’s a win for me. Done. I’m sold. Restocking this next time I do an Art of Tea shop.

drank Sunny by More Tea

With summer being so close and the days getting warmer, I made up a big 2L jug of this to cold brew a couple of days ago, and in one afternoon have almost completely polished it off! Yum. Yes. Fruity happy summer vibes.

Hah… In my feed, this note is between two notes in which people complain about it being freezing cold. :P

Took this sample out with both a hot and cold brew today, and both were enjoyable. Really fresh tasting green, and one I’d actually look forward to revisiting (high call for me with greens).

Nope, I do not get the hullabaloo around the cocoa loco teas. Binning the rest of them. Glad they were small quantities to begin with.

Yikes, polished off two of my stalwart DT blends in as many days… I guess the cupboard IS getting bare. And yet when I stare in there it seriously doesn’t feel like there are still 60 teas in there. OH WELL.

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
