I will preface this by mentioning I got rid of a lot of teas today!! I gave my mom a whole bunch when she came for a visit :) most of my minty herbal blends as she is enjoying mint lately, and some coconut ones too, coconut grove is her favorite so I gave her the rest of mine as well as my coconut oolong to try. And she got some other random herbals/white teas that I think she will like. Any she is not a fan of she is welcome to return to me haha. In return she brought me her bag of Fantasy Island, which is quite tasty, although she meant to bring me in her Pistachio and Cream tea and some of her Sugar and Spice. But she is bad with caffeine, so she was ok with getting rid of Fantasy Island (a giant 50 g bag though..I might give some back to her lol).

So yes, after our swap I made us both tea, hers was Big Apple by DavidsTea (which she enjoyed, so I gave her my bag with 1 cup left) and I made this tea. I haven’t had this one in AGES, like, since it snowed AGES. Haha, it definitely isn’t snowing today (+27 C, umm yeah very fall-like weather here lol) but it was definitely the tea I needed today! Creamy and berry tasting and good! I’m getting LOTS of cream today actually, I must have steeped it just right to get all that cream cheese lol, and maybe the bag sitting helped too. Oh, and this is the first batch of the reblend from a while back I believe, not too chemical tasting, and not the newest green tea blend. A lovely tea! See previous notes :)

It is quite good, I neglect drinking it way too much, I think it’s because it’s on the lower shelf of my tea shelf thing from Ikea so I don’t see it as often :( lol

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 :)
