So it snowed again haha so out comes my chai! I keep meaning to mix this with my laoshan black, but not today, my stomach is in a weird place, so no caffeine yet. But this is spicy and delicious on its own, so no loss :D i really like this blend, it’s soo cozy and yet spicy enough that I’m kind of awake. I’m also happy this tastes normal, because the tap water is full of chlorine because of spring run off and it’s pretty disgusting! Been using filtered water for everything, kind of scared to shower though because it will dry out my sensitive skin immediately. Ah well, I hope my tea continues to taste good at least lol. See previous notes on this tea :)

I have 1 oz. of this waiting for me… can’t justify opening up the packet quite yet though, because I have way more other stuff to drink first, and it’s all nicely sealed and airtight and such. Sigh.

I waited a little while before trying mine too! Don’t worry, lots of time to get to it :) i know what you mean about finishing other teas first, I do that too, have a cheese cake matcha unopened waiting for me to drink more of the others :(

Me too. I was actually just looking at my sealed bag earlier today realizing that it’s been sitting there for weeks now.

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.
