Hello again my beautiful delicious angel! It’s a cold, rainy night and I’ve just restocked this blend so it’s absolutely the time for a big ol’ mug of it. YUM.

I’ve got so much writing to do for NaNoWriMo and a lot of procrastinating has been done. I’m going to see how much I can push myself to pump out this week and we’ll see if I can’t still do it. I am still really into my idea, it’s just pushing the words out that I’m struggling with a bit. Or am I? Maybe I’m just really procrastinating.

I love this tea so much, by a large part for the reason it was made just for me by a sweet friend! Its main flavour is peppermint, with floral touches around the edges, and its colour is the most remarkable thing. Best with a little splash of honey to sweeten the edges and holds well for a resteep or two!

drank Indian Spice by T2

Tonight I went to a T2 event to see the new Christmas products but mostly to get 15% off everything. I have a killer cold virus right now so I asked one of the girls what I should hit up and without hesitation she was like “Lemongrass & Ginger, guuuuurl” (it was totally already in my basket) “AND Indian Spice, brew them up together for like 20mins and shove a bunch of honey in there.”

So I did. Four teaspoons of L&G and two of Indian Spice and just so much honey and everything is ok now.

So I went to have a mug of this when I was writing last night, but a full teaspoon in a 500ml mug didn’t yield much flavour at all. Then I saw that I’ve had this one for around three years… perhaps time to turf the last of it. Oops.

drank Citrus Punch by T2

This morning I made up an overnight cold brew of this blend and subsequently threw out the rest because it reminds me of my ex boyfriend and I don’t even really like it (I got a box for free in a promo maybe around this time last year but I’m much better at throwing things away these days). We’ll see how the cold brew goes.

Some of this dreamboat for breakfast/lunch while completing day two of NaNoWriMo! I’m almost out but I don’t think I’m ready to accept being out of this so I’ll restock it next week at the T2 Tea Society event (where I’ll get 15% off, yes thanks).

Definitely happy with this blend now I’ve worked out how to drink it! About half a tsp of sugar to a standard cup adds just a nice amount of sweetness.

Knocking teas down, one by one. Close to finishing this bad boy off now, too! I can barely believe it!

I’m not as in love with this blend as I used to be. I don’t know what’s happened. I threw in a sprinkle of sugar for a dessert tea tonight and it picked up the sweeter notes but I’ve lost the creaminess…

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
