I’ve been drinking a lot of Verdant teas lately lol, sorry for not much variety in the way of companies :P anyways, I decided it’s time to have a yixing session again..it’s been much too long. I feel bad for neglecting my little pot :( so yes, this tea is in there today, my favorite roasted oolong. Two rinses and about 5 second steepings for myself and the boyfriend. Delicious, perfect tea. Roasted and grapefruit and honey, everything I love! Going to have quite a few steepings of this today! See previous notes :)

All I’ve been drinking lately has been Butiki it seems haha. I seem to go through phases.

I do the same. All Stash, all Verdant … got a Harney’s order on the way, so in a few weeks it’ll be all Harney’s …

Verdant rocks.

Haha yeah, for some reason I guess I’ve been in a Verdant mood, not that I’m complaining, I love their teas! :D

Hello all, I am a happily employed 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.
