905 tasting notes

It’s so miserable here. Snowed about 10 cm overnight, and still going strong, windy out, roads are a mess. It’s my boyfriend’s engineer ceremony today so I had to drop him off there at 9, man oh man, so much snow on the roads. And I picked up my Verdant order on the way back at the post office haha, haven’t tried any of the new ones yet, I will wait until it’s not as busy of a day, or this evening. So I’m having a cup of this on this blustery day. Oh, and I have a splitting headache. One advil didn’t do a lot…gahhh. So I will enjoy this cup, but probably have something caffeine heavy later, maybe another cup of Santa’s Secret (had that this morning, mint + black tea seemed to help). I love the flavor of this tea! If I could get my vanilla citrus spice to taste similar to this, I’d be so happy lol. Orangey, a bit of chocolate, spice. Yum. See previous notes!

Ouch, rough weather! When I was there last week, I was already wimping out at the -5 and no snow.

OMGsrsly

More snow? Eep! When I hear about that, I don’t mind the endless dreary rain.

Yeah it’s about – 12 here now, not snowing as much but we probably have at least 15 cm total, horrible roads, especially the highways… Winter is definitely here
@whisperingpines – I’ll try to send some your way! Haha

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 :)
