I’m really in the mood to create something today so I’ve decided to just dive into making a tea board/table to use at work. I have some pine and I think oak planks that I can use. Mind you, I have absolutely no wood working skills whatsoever, but there’s no time like the present to learn something new, right? If any of you reading this know where I can find some good DIY instructions for a tea board please link me!

The tea I’m concurrently drinking was one of the samples provided in my last purchase. I usually don’t opt for flavoured black teas, but this one is pretty decent. I am a sucker for lychee fruit too which helps. Not much I can really say about this tea other than it’s sweet and fruity. I like it better than some of the fruit blends and flavourings I’ve tried from other companies, and thankfully the lychee flavouring doesn’t taste chemical. The tea leaves are somewhat broken and unimpressive, so I’m thinking it’s just bottom of the bag leaves tossed with flavouring. Probably wouldn’t buy this as I still prefer a pure black tea, but if you like flavoured teas this is a good choice.

Good luck with your project! I have absolutely no idea where to begin with something like that, but it sounds great. Hoping to hear updates! (:

Thankfully my father has carpentry tools I can use which should make things a bit easier. I’m probably just going to buy a cheap aluminium grill or hard mesh and set that on top of a basic wooden box. IDK, we’ll see. I’ll post a link to photos when I’m all done :)

If you have a framing or small square tool it will be much easier. Once you get the 4 sides done the rest with good measurements will be easy. Good luck and post pics when you get it done.

So I managed to buy a piece of this yesterday which I will cut to size once I build the frame https://www.homedepot.com/p/M-D-Building-Products-36-in-x-36-in-Cloverleaf-Aluminum-Sheet-Silver-57166/202091746

Am attempting to cut and assemble the wood today, so wish me luck. Thankfully I do have a square tool!

This tea is quite tasty. It has strong notes of lychee. I can also taste the black tea underneath, but it is a secondary flavor to the lychee. I like this tea. This is of course a first impression but I think it is good, better than the other lychee teas I have tried anyway. There is also a very slight sour note. I think I should brew it at 190 degrees next time.

I brewed this one time in an 18oz teapot with 3 tsp leaf and boiling water for 3 min.
