Sipdown, post super bad midterm. Want to crawl in a hole ugh. This is an excellent comfort tea, even though there was not much laoshan black at the bottom of the bag. It’s still rich and smooth and warming. Thank you tea, for making bad days a bit better. See previous notes on this excellent tea.

I’m sorry your midterm was super bad!!!!!

:( me too lol but hoping for very low class average.. Ah well at least I have my tea and steepsters!

OMGsrsly

Fingers crossed for you! I totally know how you feel, although I’ve been told my class isn’t going to be scaled. :/

MissLena

That sucks! Fingers crossed for you too! Yeah this one, I just tried to find the notes on the questions, they aren’t even in the notes. I am quite upset, and even worse, I can’t drop the course or else I don’t graduate. Le sigh. Ah well I guess that’s school :(

OMGsrsly

Yikes! You should be able to bring it up to the Prof. Maybe email, or visit during office hours and ask for clarification on the points, see what they say? Sometimes it’s a mistake and they will drop the question for the entire class.

MissLena

Yeah it’s definitely a problem for the whole class, might just have to tough it out though, I’ll see how the mark is and then maybe talk to him about how things can be improved.

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.

MissLena’s rating system
(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 :)
