So I was watching LOTR tonight..and wanted a rich, creamy tea to go with it, with a nice golden sun color..yeah, this tea fit the bill to go with the movie lol. It was enjoyable and so smooth as usual, I have enough left for about 2 cups :( ah well, I’ll enjoy it while I can! Oooh and the bf was feeling really gross tonight with regards to his stomach, I chopped up a bunch of fresh ginger and added honey and boiling water straight to it as I usually do, and also decided to add .5 tsp of lemon juice to fight if he’s getting sick. And just leave the ginger in the cup until the cup is finished. He really liked it, and requested another cup, and his tummy is feeling a bit better, as long as he doesn’t move :) sadly, I didn’t try any of my concoction, as if he’s getting sick, I don’t want to get it (it will be inevitable, anyways). But yeah, that might have to be my new cold remedy! But back to this yummy oolong haha, see previous notes :)

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.

(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 :)
