Drinking a cup of this sans additions at work this morning. I might venture back into my regular black teas eventually, although I have been doing well with the lowered caffeine intake :) this tea is malty and good today. It would have benefited from a spot of sugar and milk, but I don’t feel like adding in calories today lol. It is also cold now, but still tastes good. The tannins did do weird things to my stomach, but I ate a snack with it and now feel excellent :D

It is lightly snowing out today and grey and blah, but I am feeling relaxed from the overcast weather. We have been having crazily above average temperatures and a severe lack of snow, so the change is not totally unwelcome (at least for me lol). However, grey days make me want to be at home relaxing reading a book rather than sitting at work starting on 5 new projects lol. But with these times, all work is good work! Anyways, enough of my blathering haha, see previous notes on this tasty tea!

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.
