How that I’ve finished the easy win sipdowns, it’s going to be a bit slower going around here!

Sipdown x 2 thanks to throwing tulsi in with this blend over the past few days!

I’m on my last day of pseudoephedrine and feeling much better, I have to say! I just hope I’ve managed to keep the virus out of my chest because then everything lasts forever. Just get out of me please, illness!

Getting my cupboard so low has me pretty excited to do a decent order from a new company, I think it’s time I tried Whispering Pines… any other suggestions?

In order to get closer to a sipdown I’ve been slipping some of this into my chai and lemongrass cups in the last couple of days. I haven’t noticed it, which means it’s not overpowering but hopefully just adding to the deliciousness of my brews, as well as maybe getting some of that antioxidant goodness into me while I’m powering through this cold virus.

Sick baby took a whole pot of this up to bed this evening, shoved a whole bunch of honey into it, had a real nice time. Have T2 tooled with the blend? I don’t think it’s as obnoxiously clove-filled as it may have used to be. Or maybe I’m so ill right now that I just can’t taste it.

Thank you! I sure am pouring enough tea through me to keep hydrated.

I think I’ve finally sipped this down but I also have a lurking feeling like I’ve got a whole nother box of it hiding in my pantry somewhere?

UPDATE: NOPE! ALL GONE! FINALLY OMG! I really enjoyed it, I just didn’t think it would ever end

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
