drank Blueberry Matcha by Red Leaf Tea
888 tasting notes

I’m falling asleep studying for a dreadful midterm tomorrow, so as much as I didn’t want to have caffeine, I made a cup of this matcha, hot water and sugar. I am hoping (although unlikely) that my big matcha order will show up tomorrow, it has been in Canada since Monday, but hasn’t arrived yet here. Sigh. If it doesn’t show up tomo I have to hope no one takes it from the apartment because I’m off to the States for a week as of Sunday…fingers crossed it shows up tomorrow!! See previous notes on this matcha.

ETA – I fell asleep for 20 minutes anyways. Thank goodness its reading week after tomo, i need to get caught up on sleep asap.

Bio

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.

(as of 04/19/13)

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 :)
