So I was perusing my cupboard this morning, and I’ve been feeling like sweeter teas lately but I didn’t want to use another sachet of Paris. So I decided to try to change my sweet craving haha and i haven’t had this tea in ages, so I put this in the timolino today. Yes, a far cry from a sweet tea, but maybe I’ll start drinking some of my spicier green teas down now. This is indeed spicy and fresh, which is nice as I’m getting in a spring mood so I should drink more fresh teas. Also good to get out of my high caffeine mode I’ve been feeling lately haha. Must be stress that’s making me want sweet, decadent black teas lol:p anyways, see previous notes on this tea :)

ETA – this is doing the job! I now want fresh teas, the spring davids collection might be helping too, i want to try the Honeydew mate so bad! Making a shopping list… Uh oh lol

Hello all, I am an electrical engineer (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 was excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte, or decent decaf haha)

I enjoy a variety of teas – current favorites being ripe and raw pu’erhs, chinese black teas and herbal/green rooibos blends. I also enjoy white, green, and oolong teas, although I tend to drink them more in the warmer months. I have also tried matcha and guayusa, but I don’t drink them too often as I am a bit sensitive to caffeine. As a result I don’t drink black teas as often as I used to, but in moderation I can still enjoy a wide variety of teas.

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 have tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.
