I had a tough time picking a tea to have tonight, as it is sweltering in the apartment so I don’t really want anything hot, although I might make a green tea or herbal later. So I made a bunch of midsummer night’s dream in my jug for tomorrow and also got some pink passion fruit /strawberry rhubarb parfait brewing in the fridge. But I needed something now too, so I made a cup of this tea hot and decided to try flash icing it with cubes. I put 5 ice cubes in another mug and poured the hot brewed tea on, and it actually turned out not bad! Not quite as cold, but it will do in a pinch. Now I’m guzzling it down like nobody’s business, and trying to decide on what to have next to continue to combat the heat. Oh, and this tea is close to a sipdown, but I might pick up more since it’s so darn summery.

ETA – my ratings have seemed kind of wonky on the last few teas I’ve wrote a note on, like crazy low, not sure what’s up with that but I’m trying to fix them if I notice them, maybe it’s cuz i’m on my phone lol

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.
