Brewed this properly today, short steep time (10 seconds for first instead of a minute, adding about 5 seconds each infusion) and i love it! Have had 2 cups, the boyfriend had 2, and the leaves are still going strong! First steeps were very light and buttery, and later ones flavorful greens with butter! So savory, reminds me of some type of soup almost! Time for another cup pretty soon, I just can’t get enough. I really want to try the autumn harvest for this one as well! My verdant addiction continues :)

Hello all, I am an 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.
