Yay it’s reading week and I am going down to Montana to ski for the week on Sunday!! Huzzah! I am treating myself with this delicious tea, and this is also a SIPDOWN, although I have 2 beautiful ounces of this tea on its way to me as we speak :D I love this, using my gongfu again with 2 rinses and steep times of as short as I can make them (so about 5-6 seconds probably lol). Also got distracted by the guy driving around the parking lot behind the apartment through the same puddle over and over! Haha it was quite entertaining, especially when a woman came out of the office building by the lot and asked what he was doing lol then he took off. Anyways, this tea once again is excellent, not quite as full of honey as last time but still delicious. I didn’t rinse for quite as long so this first steep is pretty potent, but I know it will mellow into pure sweetness and more honey and last for many steepings, think I did 10 with the last bunch. See previous notes on this tea, probably my favorite black tea!!

I wonder why he was doing that?

I have no idea, it was really quite strange, he kept backing into the puddle and then driving through it from all different angles, and would get out and inspect the puddle and his vehicle after a few times…he had a pretty tiny little car too so I’m not sure if he was trying to get stuck? Lol it was entertaining anyways :)

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.

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 :)
