Summer Teas: Watermelon fruit infusions, matcha, and oolongs!

Watermelon teas are my favourite summer flavours. So I was delighted when tea companies started offering more watermelon blends over the last several years!

I can always rely on DavidsTea for some tasty watermelon fruit infusions.

Cold-brewed Witchy Watermelon (left), Watermelon Heat (center), and Watermelon Mint (right) kept me cool during the heat waves!

DavidsTea's Watermelon matcha (iced) was also great for the hot weather!

I also quenched my thirst with Dessert by Deb's Watermelon Lime Slush and Watermelon Jasmine Sorbet oolongs (but I kept forgetting to take photos of my cold-brewed watermelon oolongs).



A few months ago, I asked Deb if she could create a watermelon lavender blend. She said that she'd give it a try...and I was thrilled when she added the Watermelon Lavender Blush oolong to her summer collection! It's such a lovely balance of the watermelon and lavender!

August sipped away like a bottle of cold-brewed tea!

Garage Sale Haul #3: Mugs!

Guess who scored some more great deals at a community garage sale!


This charming mug was only 10 cents!


I also picked up this HUGE pottery mug for 50 cents. I was drawn to the unique design and knew that pottery by this artist sell for wayyyyy more than 50 cents!


 This cute animal tea cosy was a dollar.

What are the best treasures that you've scored at garage/rummage sales?

Custom character tea cosies

I'm enchanted to introduce the newest members of my band of tea cosies...

Tea Swift!
This night is sparkling, don't you let it go
I'm wonderstruck, blushing all the way home

I scoured the internet before I finally found a Etsy seller in Ireland (!!!) who had the skills and talent to turn my wildest dream into a reality!


I also ordered this bespoke E.Tea cosy.

Got a feelin' your electric touch could fill this ghost town up with life.


Sweet tea in the summer...
Love you to the moon and Saturn

Testing out a new milk frother

When I spotted the Elita Pro Double Whisk milk frother at the Dollarama store for only $5 CAD, I bought it to see if it would be good for making matchas and lattes.


The handheld, batter-operated milk frother came with a stand and an egg beater (not pictured).


It took just a minute for the Elita Pro to create a thick foam from my 2% partly skimmed cold milk.


 It also did a great job making hot matcha!
