And Shimmer Punch is back in the cupboard now I’ve cleared out Girlie Grey! Yes, it’s not a direct sort of swap… but who cares? More herbals, I say!

I’m almost out of my big box of this blend! Ready to have a bit of a break from it, despite it still being a favourite.

Took this to rehearsal instead of a coffee this morning. I’ve got more cider guayusa than killer’s vanilla so I was going to sip this down first, but considering they’re both Butiki maybe I should go one for one until they’re both gone? And then openly weep?

I drank the last of my Gone Surfing blend last night so we’re really getting into the cupboard dregs with this one! (Having said that, I did just pick up three new blend boxes at T2’s sale last week, oops. Hey, I couldn’t resist 3 boxes for $20 and I’m paranoid now that they’re all in the discontinued list…)

drank Christmas Tea by Twinings

It’s taken me a long time to get around to this but perhaps in that time I’ve gotten more ruthless, because… the rest of this tin is going in the bin.

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
