Ugh, do you ever look through your entire tea stash and just nothing is right for what you are wanting at that moment? I mean, out of all the teas, you’d think there’d be one..I think I know what one I want, some kind of yunnan black tea, like Golden Fleece or Yu Lu Yan Cha (ETA doesn’t look like Yu Lu is from Yunnan, but those sweet potato notes are what I’m after), but I don’t have much left of Golden Fleece and none of the other, so I am hoarding those until I decide to order more. Sigh. Then I wanted pu’erh, but I only have enough for Western in the open pack, and I wanted a fast little gaiwan brew..gah.

Anyways, enough of my complaining, I think I am just lonely because the bf was home for a day after being away 2 weeks, and TODAY is gone for another 11. Gotta love field jobs lol. Anyways, enough of me being boring and whiny and irritating. This oolong is the tea I decided on, because it has caramel notes but isn’t as dark and strong as a black tea, and I don’t really want a strong tea right now. Hopefully it will satisfy my tea need. Oh, and MINI SIPDOWN, as I have a big 1 oz bag of this from TOMC haha but I did finish my little sample at least :D see previous notes on this tea. I will possibly make some notes on this if the gaiwan adds a different element than my gongfu pot did :)

Bio

Hello all, I am a happily employed 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.

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
