From T2

One of the purest Australian teas, this is highly-prized and praised throughout our sunburnt country. A dry, choppy leaf brews a big, bright, coppery liquor that still has delicate and dainty elements. Very low in caffeine with a light, smooth flavour that has seen the forest through the Daintree. Refreshing and filled with national pride.

Brew: 1 teaspoon per 200mls, brew 2-4 minutes in water at 100 degrees Celsius.

Serve: Black is best, but can take a splash of milk.

Flavour: Fresh, Traditional

Strength: Light

Ear infection Day Two: still in a horrendous amount of pain, and didn’t sleep much because of it. However, it’s less than yesterday so I’m going to take that as a good sign. I’m still relying heavily on a hot compress to manage pain and swelling, as well as ear drops and advil. Yesterday it was unbearable to fully bite down, but today it’s doable – although highly uncomfortable…

We’ll see how productive I manage to be today.

This was a cup I had earlier in the week – and it was originally shared with me by VariaTEA. It doesn’t look like T2 carries it anymore; but reading through the product description I believe this is Australian black tea? It’s phrased in a bit of a vague way though, and I’m not 100% sure whether that means it’s “tea that is grown in Australia” or if it’s more meant to be interpreted as an Australian specialty tea, the same way that English Breakfast is a “British Tea” but isn’t really tea from Britain.

I thought this was fine – but it had a rather bland flavour, without a lot of nuance to it or any particularly striking flavour notes. Sort of a brassy/malty combo? It reminded me most closely of an average quality Ceylon black. Good for mindless drinking, and likely good with milk/sugar but not exceptional on its own.

Take the day off. Hunker down with a good book, a pot of tea, and don’t bother with productivity.

I find that pain in one’s head (ear infections, headaches, persistent tooth sensitivity from whitening products) reduces productivity much more than pain elsewhere. Maybe because of proximity to the brain? Either way, I don’t do well in those sort of situations!

I’ve had this a few times now but keep forgetting to write about it. Another sample from VariaTEA. This is an every day sort of black tea for me. It’s not a sup bold tea, but i can see how some would consider it as such. It’s got a little bit of copper taste to me, but largely it’s just a good average every day sort of black.
