March Tea Haul: Dessert by Deb

I've been trying really hard to limit my tea purchases this year. But I can't help treating myself when Dessert by Deb releases new teas!


The teas that I purchased


Bonus goodies


Deb surprised me with a belated birthday gift: a set of 4 adorable tea mugs!


The Lavender Peach Ginger Scone black tea was a lovely peach ginger blend with a light lavender note.


The Berry Custard Meringue rooibos was a delicious fruity blend. I enjoyed it both hot (left) and cold brewed (right).

The Almond Orange Blossom Madeleine rooibos was also a refreshing orange blend that could be served hot (left) and cold (right).

The Peppermint Caramel Crunch Layer Cake black tea would make a lovely latte!

Tokyo Jasmine Fog black tea was a tasty blend of jasmine tea and creamy earl grey.

Teas to celebrate Taylor Swift | The Eras Tour's opening weekend

To celebrate the opening weekend of Taylor Swift's The Eras Tour, I drank teas that reminded me of songs from her different eras!


 Self-Titled Debut - Our Song: Raspberry Rose by Clearview Tea Co.

Got to the hallway, well on my way to my lovin' bed
I almost didn't notice all the roses

Fearless (Taylor's Version) - The Best Day (TV): Pumpkin Chai by DavidsTea

I run and run
Past the pumpkin patch


 Speak Now - Speak Now: Mango Passionfruit Eclair by Dessert by Deb

And she is yelling at a bridesmaid
Somewhere back inside a room
Wearing a gown shaped like a pastry


 Red (Taylor's Version) - 22 (TV): Cereal Milk by Dessert by Deb

It feels like a perfect night
For breakfast at midnight


 1989 - Blank Space: Cherry Berry Punch by DavidsTea

Cherry lips, crystal skies
I could show you incredible things


  Reputation - ...Ready For It? Tangerine Dream Honeybush by Monarch Tea Co.

In the middle of the night, in my dreams (my dreams)
I know I'm gonna be with you


Lover - The Archer: Fireside S'Mores by Dessert by Deb

I wake in the night, I pace like a ghost
The room is on fire, invisible smoke


 Folklore - The Last Great American Dynasty: Matcha Key Lime Pie by Dessert by Deb

And in a feud with her neighbor
She stole his dog and dyed it key lime green 
Folklore - August: Salted Caramel Oolong by DavidsTea

Salt air, and the rust on your door
I never needed anything more


 Evermore - Champagne Problems: Sleepy Lychee by DavidsTea

 Bustling crowds or silent sleepers
You're not sure which is worse


 Midnights - Lavender Haze: Lavender London Fog by Dessert by Deb

I just wanna stay
In that lavender haze 


 Midnights - Maroon: Pink Grapefruit Rosé by DavidsTea

How'd we end up on the floor anyway? You say
"Your roommate's cheap-*ss screw-top rosé, that's how"

Do you have a favourite Taylor Swift song?

A Shamrock Teacup

 After years of treasure hunting, I finally found an item on my wish list:

 A shamrock teacup!

The English bone china teacup was made by Queen Anne circa 1959+.

I was utterly charmed by the green shamrocks and yellow star-shaped flowers!

Fun at Tea Time Mugs

Your friendly neighbourhood tea lover was recently gifted a pair of tea time coaster and mugs from her local Buy Nothing group.

The mugs are decorated by delightful teapots, teacups, and cakes!

Matching coasters.

 Fun at tea time!
