Ahhh I just had to have this creamy wonder of a tea today. The weather is in another weird funk, up to +1 today and it was -12 C or lower all week and windy and snowing. Yeah, now bright sunshine and warm. So this called for a spring tea!

I don’t drink this tea enough. I really want to try the fall version of Verdant’s tieguanyin soon! This is pure, creamy, delicious light greens. Perfection. Buttery. There’s some later sweetness in the sip, definitely a bit of orchid. I’m brewing this in my gong fu glass pot, and it definitely is making a difference than using the brew basket. Space for the leaves to expand! Ahh, I will savor this for a while before dinner. Oh, and I did a quick rinse as well. Anyways, please see previous notes on this lovely tea :)

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 :)
