I am contemplating an Andrews & Dunham order. Yes, I have never tried their teas. But I saw free shipping…and I read the reviews, didn’t really find any negatives..and I am feeling adventurous, so maybe I will this week. I might split them with a friend as well since they are such large tins, sent him a link and he thinks they look splendid.

Anyways, so after reading about those robust, strong black teas, I, of course, am craving a strong Earl Grey..at 11 at night. Work tomorrow as well. But I can’t help it. I just made a cup of this. It smells delicious and bergamotty. Hopefully I can sleep tonight at some point haha, I only steeped for 4 minutes so hopefully that tones down some caffeine kick. See previous notes on this tea :)

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 :)
