I ended up making another cup with the remainder of my little packet this morning. This is actually going on my repurchase list.

I’m a sucker for a glittery tea. Luckily, I also find this one really tasty! It actually tastes like the French Toast Crunch cereal (does that still exist?)

I had originally tried this in the Brutaliteas advent 2 years ago, fully expecting not to enjoy it. But, it ended up being one of my favorites from the advent. It tastes like Captain Crunch cereal, and I find it super easy to drink and mood lifting. I just bought a 2oz bag of it to keep at work.

I got vaccinated on Saturday! I ended up feeling absolutely terrible all day yesterday, but luckily the side effects seem to have passed. Sadly I didn’t drink much tea over the last couple days, but had another cup of this in the morning. Still syrupy sweet, like overripe stone fruits.


That’s exciting! So glad you’re feeling better!


Congrats on the vax!

Better to feel a few days uncomfortable, but protected!


Good to hear :)

I placed a Bitterleaf order in the middle of the pandemic, and it sadly just never arrived (stupid pandemic shipping issues). I was nervous about the package going missing again, so waited until just a couple of months ago to place an order again. The order arrived safely a couple of days ago, and I’m so in love with all of the teaware I got.
This is the lone tea I got in the order, and it’s a plum beauty for sure! It’s light and sweet, and was such a fun gonfu session. I couldn’t get enough of the stick sweet stone fruit flavor and aroma.

From Dustin’s advent. For some reason I thought this was fruity, so was surprised to taste chocolate! Not mad at all, though. The nutty chocolate cookie flavor is quite tasty.

A generous share from Dustin, thank you! I’m mainly getting tart cranberry and herbaceous rosemary against the mildly astringent black base.

Thanks to Cameron for posting about this brand! I bought the sampler pack as soon as it became available again, and they arrived today! I was most intrigued by this blend- milk oolong, Assam black tea, cardamom, dates, figs, caramel, and roses (amongst a few other things). Quite an ingredient list. The smell upon opening the bag is incredibly strong. It’s soooo sweet smelling, and has an eggnog thing going on with it. I’m getting eggnog in the flavor too. Not really making out any of the individual ingredients, except the caramel. Not getting any of the flavor of the tea, which makes sense, as I can’t see much of it in the dry mix. Definitely need to revisit this one, as I have some mixed feelings.

Ha ha, well I’m glad to encourage new brands around here, even if this wasn’t your favorite! I’m waiting for it to be available individually to order some to try. I will say I haven’t been super happy with her teas so far, but mostly because there are a lot of florals…

drank Cantadope by Brutaliteas

This is mainly just a green oolong, with the tiniest hint of cantaloupe in the aftertaste. I was hoping for more of a cantaloupe flavor, but the mildness of the cantaloupe is actually quite nice. This would probably be excellent as an iced tea!

Though, I’ll taste anything once!

I mainly brew western style.I like my tea extremely strong, so I tend to use wayyyyy more dry leaf than suggested.
