It’s a balmy 18 degrees C in my office right now haha..so I made a cup of this after having one from home of vanilla cream rooibos (I should log that one too I suppose lol). Yeah, there’s definitely something up with the water here. Gah. My tea is not very tasty lol, a strange, icky taste is present that is never there. Luckily it seems to dissipate as the tea cools, and currently I’m happy with it just warming my hands lol. But it’s still drinkable in a pinch. I’m just being fussy lol. I don’t know if I have logged this tea yet actually, I have drank it a few times and enjoyed it, I will write an in depth tasting note at a later date though, not from this cup lol.

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 :)
