drank Mint Julep by DAVIDsTEA
822 tasting notes

I haven’t written a log in a while oops! I’ve been spending time with the guy as he’s finally been home, and also working, but I’ve still been having tea and reading logs :) i won’t backlog everything though lol. I am having a cup of this, it’s still too hot to drink but it smells tasty, very good and lemony again. I’m also chilling some White Tiger iced tea, and fold brewing a mix of strawberry rhubarb parfait and pink passion fruit mixed, hoping it’s not too tart. Anyways, i’ll drink those later haha, and have my mint julep now. See previous notes!

ETA – This was tasting note 400!! Oops haha, missed it when I wrote it :D

Bio

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 :)
