It’s one of those rough weeks…mountains of work, had an exam yesterday for my class, apartment problems (make me want to move to be honest) and not enough sleep on top of that. Sigh. I want this week to be over already, I want to finish all my work, and I want to move haha. Oh, and it’s that time of month lol. But I will persevere..with a cup of this tea this morning. Malty, dark, with a slight honeyed aftertaste. No milk in my cup today. Pure caffeinated goodness right here. This is giving me energy to keep going through the day, and tastes good to boot. Ugh I want to sleep, but I will keep working. See previous notes.

Yup, that definitely sounds like a malty tea kinda day. Hope things shape up soon xx

Thanks, it didn’t improve much, but today was a bit better, got my tea orders! That makes even the most miserable day a bit brighter :)

For sure!! A day with new tea is amazing, even if you don’t get to try them :P

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.

MissLena’s rating system
(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 :)
