So this week has been rather terrible so far. Busy, frustrating labs, job applications, homework..just busy like crazy. I am feeling burnt out and hoping I do not get sick from stress/overtiredness. Anyways, I digress.

This tea is one that I just felt like having tonight, maybe because I haven’t in a while, and it makes me feel warm and…loved? Haha, it reminds me of romance and far away places..sigh. Anyways, this was a lovely fruity cuppa to help me wind down for bed, not that I needed much help, I’m very tired. And I steeped it almost perfectly tonight, not sure if it was 4 minutes or 5, but it was just right. See previous notes on this 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 :)
