I had a cozy cup of this tonight, I’ve been freezing all day and unfortunately still am! Hope I’m not getting sick :( anyways, this cup was tasty tonight, a bit stronger due to not rinsing it and a bit longer steep time (~2.5 mins). I am still wanting to have as magical of an experience as Fuzzy_Peachkin did with this tea, but it still is mostly spices and vanilla to me, not much citrus. It is good though, I will have no trouble finishing this bag. See previous notes!

This is the one tea that makes me want to break my no mail-orders until Thanksgiving promise to myself!

Oh and I was on a complete runner’s high when I had this the first time. That may have added to my eenjoyment of the tea.

Hello all, I am an 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.
