Had a lovely cup of this in the morning. Excellent as usual :)

On a tea-related note, I went for a high-tea brunch type thing today with my great aunt and mom. I was quite excited for an authentic tea brunch experience :). Unfortunately, the tea was not spectacular. The special they had was a loose leaf orange pekoe, which I would have tried but my aunt and mom were getting it already, and I didn’t want us to all get the same thing! So I tried their decaffeinated black tea, which came in a bag. I was stuck between it and the jasmine green and the peppermint, but as we were having a English style tea, I thought I should get a black (and try to minimize caffeine). It was very watery and not flavorful at all :( my aunt and mom’s loose tea wasn’t much better though! After adding some honey and leaving it steep for a long time, it had some taste, but nothing like other teas I have had! The loose one was very much the same for both my aunt and mom. Luckily, the amazingly DELICIOUS food made up for it, and it was still a superb experience. I would go back because of the amazing food, not for the tea :P just thought I’d share that with the lovely steepsterites on here :)

Hello all, I’m a newly graduated electrical engineer as of 2013 (read:NERD :D), who is a bit obsessed with tea! I discovered loose tea in 2011, DAVIDsTEA in 2012 and it took off from there. I really started drinking/enjoying tea because it’s excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte haha)

I enjoy a variety of herbal, white, green, oolong and black teas. I have also tried a few pu’erhs and matcha I am a bit sensitive to caffeine, but I find that in moderation I can still indulge in black teas and matcha.

Oh, and I have a severe peanut allergy and try to avoid most other nuts, just to be safe. Limits my tea choices a bit, but that’s ok. However I recently tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.

95+: Absolute favorite, will try to always have it in stock, and when I don’t I pine over it!
90-94: Awesome teas, will probably purchase again a few times
80-89: Very good tea, may restock at some point
70-79: happy to have tried and will gladly finish, but not restock
60-69: not horrible, but not the best, will finish if I have some though
50-59: not a favorite, probably will have a tough time finishing the bag
-50: yuck. I don’t want to have it ever again.

I am happy to say that my caffeine intolerance seems to be subsiding! This is allowing me to try a wider variety of teas :)
