I haven’t had a cup of this in ages! Well, tonight was the night. I went through my stash and made a list of teas I would like to work on sipping down due to age, amount left, etc…and I have also been compiling lists of tea orders from various companies lol. Trying to organize which ones I want to order from first, I haven’t been ordering tea much lately, and when I do start ordering again I want to do it in an organized manner to watch budgeting and such. Haha such a responsible side of me came out this weekend, what with all the yardwork, cleaning, laundry, and coursework I have been doing (must be because my guy is coming back from working 2 weeks tomorrow..want everything to be clean and perfect for him to return to :D).

So anyways, long informative rant aside, this tea is on the sipdown list. Not that I don’t enjoy it, it’s just getting old and I want to drink it while it still tastes good! And tonight it is very good. This is like a fresh walk in the woods by the coast, with the saltwater air and fresh breeze rippling on your face, and that damp mossy smell underneath your feet. Takes me to a nice place, like somewhere on the west coast of Vancouver Island. I want to go back there soo bad! Haha, anyways, see previous notes on this tea :)

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 :)
