#tiffanys2021sipdown Tea #186 overall / Tea #10 for May
Thursday 5/6 — Lauku Tea Brigita’s Daylight Blend. Sipsby box. Cold brew glass jar. Uh, it’s Thursday? WTF happened to Weds? Oh! I know! I had work, then I had an impromptu casual sit down/interview/job offer, then I came home to tell my boyfriend (who I live with) & my parents (phone call) about job opportunity, then my Columbus Crew were outplayed by Monterrey in CCL play to be eliminated losing down in MX 3-0. I sipped on tea, but nothing was finished 5/5 (I guess a store kombucha GTS Lavender Love). Anyway, I sipped this this morning after it has been brewing in my fridge for a few days. Very herby herbal. Was cold and got the job done this morning with breakfast.

Tuesday 5/4 — Davidson’s Organics Rooibos Spiced Chai 2 tea bags. Another tea hot & plain at work during the end of the shift. Thanks Sipsby (from a box a long time ago, probably a few years?).

#tiffanys2021sipdown Tea #184 overall / Tea #8 for May
Tuesday 5/4 — Friday Afternoon Tea Maple Hojicha. I love love this one! This is a hojicha tea + natural maple flavoring – simple but delicious. Had two sample packets from an old Sipsby box (I thought I had already drank those because that’s what introduced me to Friday & her tea company!) & cold brewed and YES. I am pretty sure I have bigger bags of this is my Friday Tea stash from all the orders I made last/this year online + in person last Sept when in Seattle. Will have to keep this around permanently, also try hot and cold/hot latte. :D

Boo, a maple houjicha I enjoyed is no longer carried by the teashop I got it, and I’ve been looking for a replacement. But I don’t see this one on Friday Afternoon’s site anymore. :-(

Looks like it’s available September through December:

drank Moringa Mango by Miracle Tree
188 tasting notes

#tiffanys2021sipdown Tea #183 overall / Tea #7 for May
Tuesday 5/4 —Miracle Tree Moringa Mango 2 teabags. Last of the 4 I had from an old Sipsby box.

Last/this/next week my schedule at work isn’t too bad, I have a couple new coworkers (2 ladies) at my main hotel who I’m enjoying, soccer season is starting up (#columbustilidie GO CREW! (:), get to see my immediate family for first family gathering since March 2021 later in the month, life is good.. just need to get my 3-4 trips minimum in (getting that travel bug itch), more if possible… and then I seriously do it to myself and work a double shift 5/4 (7-2 and 3-11) 5/4 which is fine because 5/5 was an off day.. and then working 7-3 as well 5/5. Oof. I guess I’ll nap in the afternoon of May 5th?

Anywho – TL;DR LIFE IS FULL BUT GOOD and I brewed this hot & plain (2 teabags) in my trusty DT navy blue tumbler and had in evening shift at my regular hotel.

Tasting Note #184 overall / Not a sipdown note #2
An Ode to Tea, R is for Rose all Day by DavidsTea (gifted by Tori aka @siply_tealicious) 15/23
Monday 5/3 — DavidsTea Rose all Day. Finished cold-brew pitcher #1. Tori gave me enough for probably 3 full size (64 oz) cold brew pitchers. Not a wine/alcohol drinker but this is pleasant enough to enjoy the pitchers I make of this.

drank Hard Candy by DAVIDsTEA

#tiffanys2021sipdown Tea #182 overall / Tea #6 for May
Monday 5/3 — DT Hard Candy. This is a tiny tin, well, enough with 2-3 PS inside – cold brew in glass jar. This tea is super old but never had it fresh, I love the slight sour cherry taste to the overall muddy fruity taste. Would love for them to bring this back and would definitely stock up and buy a bunch fresh (at least 10 oz if not more)!

#drinkwhatyouown February 1?/25
Monday 5/3 — DT Strawberry Colada. This is a tiny tin, well, enough with 2-3 PS inside – cold brew in glass jar. Made two cold lattes (3/4 tea, 1/4 cream) for Micah the evening of 5/2 so he could drink 5/3 while I was at work. The tea I have left is older, but I’d be interested if DT or another company would do another strawberry coconut tea.

drank The Queen's Peach by T2

#tiffanys2021sipdown Tea #180 overall / Tea #4 for May
An Ode to Tea, Q is for the Queen’s Peach by T2 (gifted by Brianna aka @briannadrinkstea) 14/23
Sunday 5/2 — T2 the Queen’s Peach. Took the entire amount Brianna gave me and did a cold brew pitcher. I did not read any of the ingredients in advance but was looking forward to a peach tea, I have not found one yet that I like…. Ended up being a slightly sweet heavily turmeric spicy tea. I like turmeric in my tea actually but was not prepared for this to be what I was tasting, thought the orange was going to be a peach flavor/taste. Once I knew what I was getting into as I sipped the whole pitcher it was enjoyable but not a purchase. — Wait, this doesn’t have any turmeric in it? Must be the ginger I was tasting? Hmm, interesting…

This one was odd, barely any peach and just a little ginger.

#tiffanys2021sipdown Tea #179 overall / Tea #3 for May
Saturday 5/1 — Dessert by Deb Earl Grey Tea Cake. Had one PS left in sample packet. Brewed hot & plain, just tasted like a sweet earl grey no tea cake. Not an earl grey fan so this was a miss for me.

drank Sleigh Ride by DAVIDsTEA
188 tasting notes

#tiffanys2021sipdown Tea #178 overall / Tea #2 for May
Saturday 5/1 — DTs sleigh ride — my favorite DT tin size ever, the small slim metal jar that held around 50g of a tea. Had enough to do a 20 oz cold brew glass jar and sipped a day or two later (aka Sat 5/1). This is a classic DT, not sure if I prefer it hot or cold since I like it both ways. I am team Santa’s Secret and Candy Cane Crush, but this is probably my favorite “winter/holiday” classic DT tea.

Yeah, but I recently discovered a new 57 gram pouch of Snow Day definitely definitely does NOT fit in the same tin for 50 grams of Snow Day… so was it really 50 grams?

Been a huge fan of tea since spring of 2016.

Likes: herbal (tisanes), green, oolong, fruity, lemon, bananas, cherry, raspberry, any berries really, dessert, sweet potato, spicy, smoky, earthy, roasted, chai, ginger, cardamom, lavender, rosemary, sage need to keep adding to this.

Dislikes: stevia, chamomile, rose, jasmine, perfume, floral.

I love to share/swap/take in homeless teas… if you have something (even if it’s just enough for one cup – for me one cup is a 16-20 oz size) to share / want to swap / etc. feel free to send me a message. I don’t have any allergies and love trying new things! :)
