Sad sipdown :( but not too sad, I found a sample of the Autumn version of this in my sample drawer! So hurray! I will last until the spring or summer batch of this comes out :) I love this tea, it’s probably my favorite green tea, although Mrs. Li’s dragonwell is also amazing. I think I neglected to make a note on that one, oops, well I have a full bag of it waiting for me to jump into, so the time will come. Anyways, this is beany, fresh, savory, buttery..haha buttery tea afternoon? Had a milk oolong and now this, I will have a bunch more steeps of this and hopefully get focused on my giant lab I need to get going on and an assignment due tomorrow. Oh, and I did a 10 sec steep for the first one with about 190 degree water in my little gongfu pot today, first time I use it for this tea and it is pretty tasty :) See previous notes on this tea!

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 :)
