drank Green Ginger by Tazo
1125 tasting notes

Sooo I am pretty much out of my loose tea at work that has caffeine, I have one bag that might be mate, but I don’t want quite that much caffeine, I tend to crash more from that one than be woken up lol. So I took out a bag of this tea…..ehhh, not my favorite. I actually think this one tastes better with boiling water, even though it’s a green tea lol, so that probably isn’t a good thing..but it’s caffeine, and I am soo sleepy today (probably from planes this weekend) that I will take anything. So I will refrain from making my bitter face at work and sip this down for the buzz. The flavor is actually ok under the bitterness/tartness haha, there’s even a hint of pear, but not my favorite, I actually prefer this one iced. I should like this tea since I’m a ginger fiend, but this one just doesn’t have the same taste as other ginger teas do. However, I am waking up. Huzzah.

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.
