#tiffanys2021sipdown Tea #168 overall / Tea #39 for April
Monday 4/26 — Bird and Blend Cococabana Coola started the brew Tues 4/20 — aka 4 days decanted into small bottles evening Sat 4/24 to drink Sun 4/25 but ended up sipping 4/26. An old 20g “sample” that was turned into a cold-brew pitcher.. delightful fruity herbal tea, I love the tropical fruity taste. If I didn’t have 3238420948294829043820432904234 teas, I’d actually consider getting a new bag of this for my collection.

Sunday 4/25 — Bird & Blend Peanut Butter + Banana. Milk teatime #2. Have not been making as many milk teas with all the kombucha (homemade & store bought), cold-brew pitchers for work, etc. I have a tradition on Sundays to work the morning shift 7-3, come home in afternoon and have a brief time with Micah, then he goes and visits his family on Sunday evenings, and I have the evening to relax (weekends are busy at work), hang out by myself, do the weekly laundry, etc. I am behind on my sip down goals so trying to get some good head way to finish out the month.

This package is from their original breakfast tea line, but so old that the label has pretty much worn off the paper package. This is one of my favorite rooibos teas when I’m generally not a rooibos fan. Old but still has an okay strength. Finished this package up as a hot plain latte. Will have to go find where I have more of this tea in my stash.

I hope they bring this flavor back! I haven’t tried it, but it sounds so fun!

Sunday 4/25 — Fava Tea Peanut Butter Kiss Cookie. I LOVEEEE Peanut Butter Kiss cookies. I made the whole sample pack hot & plain brewed for quite a while and then mixed with hot milk for a latte Unfortunately this tea just tastes like rooibos, no peanut butter or chocolate coming through.

Saturday 4/24 — Bird & Blend Simply the Zest. oh B&B, LOL on the name. Anyway, this was a nice size sample (they are always so generous) and as always I made this 20g into a cold brew pitcher. Started Weds 4/21 and finished pitcher 4/24. Nice fruity black tea, not necessarily a future purchase but nothing to complain about!

Thursday 4/22 — DT Merry Cranberry started 4/19 put in mugs 4/21 sipped 4/22. Very old tea, maybe 1 oz worth not sure was in plastic baggie? made as a nice cold-brew pitcher. I wish more of the cranberry had stuck out, but it was mainly a sweet cinnamon green tea. Never had this tea when it was fresh so I cannot compare.

Wednesday 4/21 — PudTea Eton Mess, made hot & plain 16 oz. Another rooibos tea bites the dust with a light hint of berry. Would like to try Eton Mess as the actual dessert. Thank you to AJRimmer for the share per my request to be added to the share package.

Wednesday 4/21 — Harts of America Dandelion Mint. So, my side hustle hotel does water that has mint + cucumber in it. I’m not a huge fan of flavored water but trying to recycle the water when ice starts melting, I usually grab a pitcher to use for my cold brew tea. I’ve been mixing the HoA Dandelion Mint with it and it’s a nice herbal refreshment. Not my favorite tea from them, not something I’d purchase or look to get again but not bad. I actually think they make very nice tisanes and enjoy my monthly subscription ($7.98 USD per month for two 2 oz tisanes with shipping)

My first order from them arrived last week! Their teas are so cheap – I can’t wait to try them!

Cameron B.

I’m plotting an order, but am trying to force myself to use up some herbal tisanes first! XD

Martin Bednář

They have a several interesting blends for sure! They say they ship internationally, but it’s not working on checkout page. Maybe one day I will contact them at least :)

Tuesday 04/20 — DT Orange Glow mini single serving tin. Made this hot & plain drank warm/room temp & plain early AM 4/20. Very old tea did not steep for long cause I was in a rush to get to work my Monday overnight shift… hopefully the rest I have in bags/larger tins etc. in my basement will taste better, remember being a fan.

Monday 04/19 — Tipson Teas Honey Lemon Matcha 2 teabags. #9 of 9 notes I was behind on. Cold-brewed this for a while today on my countertop and sipped on it this afternoon. Was pleasant for being a teabag matcha.. could taste all the flavors in the tea name, first time cold-brewing matcha!

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 post here and there on Instagram, need to start posting there more regularly.

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! :)
