820 tasting notes

My headache is still going strong today, I think it’s from the pressure..up at 102.6 kPa or something, and rising…blargh. I made this tea this morning in hopes the mint would help it, but nothing yet. I had a migraine tylenol and some pepsi now, might make a mate tea for even more caffeine to try to ward this thing off. Making me not productive at work lol. See previous notes on this tea.

I hear your pain. I had taken the daily recommended limit of Advil by 4am this morning due to headache. I found a bit of caffeine (from my morning tea) helped too. Damn season change.

Mine is gone for the moment, good old Tylenol and caffeine, i need to bring more highly caffeineated teas to work for times like like that, a bit better for me than a Pepsi lol. Hope yours goes away soon too!

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.

(as of 04/19/13)

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 :)
