A break from sipdowns to have a minty cup of this. I was scared off of this tea for a while because the last cup I had I really did not enjoy at all, it was so sweet and thick it was cloying and I felt sick after having it lol. Today I shook up the bag better so there wasn’t as much white chocolate at the top and that seemed to help. Today’s cup is a lot better, minty with a creaminess from the white chocolate as well as sweetness. Still not as good as my first bag, but that one had barely any white chocolate so that might be the difference. Yes, I could have had straight peppermint today if I want more pure mint, but I wanted a bit of creaminess. Luckily it’s working today, phew, I should be able to drink most of the bag! Decreasing rating a tad as if there’s too much chocolate, it’s not nearly as drinkable. See previous notes.

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.
