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 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.

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.
