SIPDOWN! I am cold brewing the rest of my sample, hoping it doesn’t get too strong, but if I had only used half of it only the munched up green tea bits would be left for the next one. Ah and I need a sipdown tonight..I need about 20 actually..I had to return to the mall today because I got my grad dress yesterday and they did not remove the magnetic tag (sigh) and bad, bad me, I had to have tried birthday cake and red velvet cake last night…so yes, I picked some up (and some Ceylon Star and Stormy Night), so now I cannot go back there, especially because it was the SAME GIRL working there when my friend went last night, and when mom and I went last week. LOL tea addict, yes, yes indeed I am. Miraculously, my cupboard is just under 100, and IT IS STAYING THAT WAY. I am on the verge of cancelling my TOMC from Verdant until I sip down more teas. Yes, I will probably do that. Anyways, see previous notes on this tea, hoping it tastes good once it is finished cold steeping :)

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 :)
