Mmmmm, first cup of the day. So tasty, I used a bit less leaf and it’s not quite as strong today, steeped 2 minutes in my giant mug. Warming, cozy, awesome. I just love this tea. I don’t drink it too often as there is quite a caffeine punch I find lol. Almost finished up my BOMC bag, and will soon start on my 2 oz bag haha :D Happy Sunday! See previous notes on this tea!

Yep definitely helps to wake you up! And it’s a nice change in my chai lineup :D

MissLena

It’s my favorite chai, and one of the few actual chais I have in my cupboard right now lol

Helena

If it isn’t permanent, I think there will be a petition to make it so. I really love it.

MissLena

It might be a seasonal one, like Eight Treasures, which I can probably live with as long as I stock up before it leaves haha, but permanent would be ideal :)

Helena

I didn’t buy much as I was just trying it… and now I don’t think I can live without it. Damn Verdant Tea and their yumminess!

MissLena

Haha that happens quite often with their teas I find :P well it looks like it’s in stock for you to order more at least :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.
