So it was like +20 C last week, and this morning, it’s snowing. Haha, gotta love the weather..but I am off to Vegas in less than 24 hours! Hello hot, hot weather! Ah it came up fast, need to pack! I’m going to drink some favorite teas today, as I am leaving my teas behind for my 5 day trip. This one is my favorite for rainy/snowy/generally miserable days, as it’s cozy and makes me feel warm and happy inside. Man it smells good today too. See previous notes on this tea :)

Ah I went to Vegas when it was freezing, seems like it’s either too hot or too cold there…funny thing is even though it was really cold and windy people were still laying out by the pool in their swimsuits.

I bet it’s still warmer than here though! Lol, I just checked out the forecast, looks like the coldest it will be is around 28 C…quite a change from -4 here today lol

El Monstro

OH I almost forgot… I should mention since this is a tea website, they have the best thai food place ever in Vegas, awesome thai iced tea…It’s called lotus of siam if you are looking for a place to eat….relatively inexpensive (it is off of the strip) yet highly rated.

Awesome! I will try to check that out, thanks for the info! :)

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 :)
