Yum yum yum. I like this tea. It is pouring rain here today, so it’s the perfect day for an earl grey. I made this in the morning and had about 2/3 of the travel mug, now the rest is cold. But man, this is an earl grey. I was expecting it to be totally different, as it smells pretty strongly of bergamot dry. But after a 4 min steep, there is the perfect amount of it, not perfumy either, just a perfect balance. Mellow yet not. Yeah, I like this haha. The caffeine was a bit rough on my stomach when it was empty before lunch, but it still is a very good tea. I want to try it when it’s not in my travel mug haha, maybe when I get home, because it’s a mount gray day here, with all the rain. At least it hasn’t flooded here, still nuts what happened in the south part of the province. To any southern Albertans on steepster, thoughts out to you all!

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 :)
