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.

Flavors: Chocolate, Cream

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.

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 :)
