Oh yeahhh. This is another one of my blends, Black Cherry and French Vanilla matcha. I decided to put it under the black cherry because it just seems like the fruit is a bit more of the center when blended with french vanilla. I don’t really know the ratio, it was close to half and half, maybe a touch more cherry? In total, about 1 tsp of matcha, maybe a bit more. Whisked it up, didn’t have quite enough water I don’t think because it wasn’t frothing that much, so I added a bit more and then there were bubbles! Once again, just hot water in this, as I am going to try to introduce my friend to matcha later this evening and she will probably want a latte haha, I might make an almond or caramel one with milk for us :D. This smelled kind of funky, like a weird creamy cherry haha, but it tastes pretty good! The creaminess is definitely present, with a lovely fresh cherry aftertaste! The black cherry by itself is a lot more in your face cherry punch, but this is a nice mellow sweet thing! No added sugar required! And the matcha flavor is still there too :) I like the French Vanilla flavor in this! Score for a tasty mix, much preferring this than the blend of blueberry and french vanilla. Huzzah for my new matcha obsession (addiction?). Also, random note so I don’t forget, I need to try adding honey one of these times just to see what happens hehe.

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 :)
