This is the tea I am having to celebrate being done my crazy busy week! I’m also super stoked about my new Yixing teapot that I ordered this week! :D love this tea as always, haven’t had a really good oolong in ages it seems, thank you Verdant. Fresh greens with butter and honey aftertaste, delicious!

I’d join you in drinking this tea but I don’t like to waste good tea on a bad mood. I’m blue. Good day for puer. Sounds good for another day though and the pot, how wonderful!

I hope you feel better soon Bonnie! At least you have puer, which is also excellent :) and I’m super excited about the pot! I got one from Verdant somehow, good timing I guess, I am just itching for it to arrive! Will have to wait quite a while when it does ship, being in Canada..it will be a long few weeks!

Bonnie

Wow lucky you! Those are collectors items!

MissLena

Yes indeed! It will receive much love and care :)

Hello all, I am a happily employed electrical engineer (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 was excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte, or decent decaf haha)

I enjoy a variety of teas – current favorites being ripe and raw pu’erhs, chinese black teas and herbal/green rooibos blends. I also enjoy white, green, and oolong teas, although I tend to drink them more in the warmer months. I have also tried matcha and guayusa, but I don’t drink them too often as I am a bit sensitive to caffeine. As a result I don’t drink black teas as often as I used to, but in moderation I can still enjoy a wide variety of teas.

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 have 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.
