You know I’ve been busy when all I have time to talk about is tea and nail polish 😉 Here’s another tea review, obviously from Aaah Tea. This one is the After Dinner Mint, one of their many flavoured blacks (my favourite kinds). Yay! I am in superlove with this tea – black Ceylon with chocolate, peppermint, spearmint, apple pieces and (best of all!) macadamia nuts. Heaven much?!
Hurrah, another tea review from the beloved Aaah Tea ❤ This one is extra special because it’s a request from a reader! After receiving the request I sent off an email to the lovely and oh-so-accommodating Tash at Aaah, and got a sample sent out lickety-split. Today’s is the Nightea Night healing herbal blend – a lovely simple sleepy-time tea!
Delindel has been quite busy the last week or so trying out teas and reviewing them I thought it was time I dusted out my tea pot as well.
Now I am not a big tea drinker, I am more of an insane coffee drinker. Every morning the first thing I do is down a cup of coffee before anything else. Don’t get me wrong I actually love the taste of coffee and I take it with no sugar. I am also very picky about my coffee, so my instant brew is Moccona classic and if I am out I will buy a trim flat white preferably double shot.
The tea I usually drink is Lipton Lemon and Honey, yes I know in a bag! I also have a vast selection of other teas but Gabby is a bit more into it than I am. There is one brand of tea that brings out the esscentric in me though, Aaah Tea.
Tonight I have a bit of a review of one of Aaah’s green teas – the basic Genmaicha. This one is a mix of simple bancha (Japanese green) tea leaves, with some added roasted rice grains. Sounds strange to some people (MaSucree was a bit like “O_o wut?” when I told her about it!) but is surprisingly yummy!
I was very excited to try this tea! I used to enjoy drinking a cup of tea in the morning, but since starting my addiction to loose leaf teas I haven’t been able to stomach bagged tea and I felt like there would be no point buying a plain black loose leaf tea. How wrong I was!
The Breakfast Brew is, obviously, Aaah’s take on the traditional English Breakfast. It’s a lovely-smelling mix of various sized black tea leaves and as the website says, full of flavour! I adore it because we all know how I feel about milk and honey in tea! This is one tea I can certainly justify adding milk to ><
MaSucree has done quite a few of these things already and I thought it would be a bit silly of me to do a tea review 3 posts in a row! I have more tea reviews coming of course (I took some notes this morning, and am taking some more right now!) but today I thought I’d go over a few of my recent (and some not-so-recent) purchases.
Almost 3 weeks ago MaSucree and I received a new Beauty Joint order that MaSucree posted briefly about here. I thought I’d finally get around to showing off the things I got! In that order I picked up two Nyx round lipsticks (Hades and Champagne), a Nyx jumbo eye pencil (Milk) , a Nyx slide-on eye pencil (Jewel), and a Milani nail polish (Jewel FX Gems)! Yay!
I’ve been feeling a bit poorly so today is just another tea review >< This time I chose Luscious Lively Lemon, which is one of Aaah’s fruit infusions. As with my last tea review, this tea is another that needs to be enjoyed without milk. I brewed mine for 8 minutes again (when it says 5-10 minutes I try to aim for half-way).
This tea looks absolutely delicious with all those little chunks of apple, lemon peel and lemongrass~ yummy!
