It’s always exciting to finish off a tea. Down goes Sweet Dreams, in goes Gone Surfing! I think I’ll buy a box of Sweet Dreams for my visiting European friends though, they definitely enjoyed it. I’ll see what they think of Gone Surfing!

Delicious sleepy time tea for me tonight, and a lot of nights. I only really need one teaspoon for a large mug, so it’s taking me a good while to get through this one!

I made a hot mug of this last night but then forgot about it, so I drank it today cut with soda water… which is how it turns out I drank the rest of it. And I enjoyed it again so much that I’ve finished my stash off in the same manner tonight.

It’s midsummer but it’s cold as heck and it’s probably going to snow on the mountain tonight. I’m curled up on the couch with a mug of this, some freshly baked banana bread and a distressing movie. What a great way to end the week.

Lovely afternoon brew when you’re out of milk. I sweeten it with a bit of sugar (but honestly not too much, around half a tsp for 500ml is PLENTY to bring out the sweeter notes).

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
