I am drinking this tea in a futile attempt to warm up at work. IT IS SO FREAKING COLD IN MY OFFICE. It is probably a workplace hazard. Like seriously, my little heater has been running since before I got to work (someone else was freezing) and it is only warmed up to 70 around the heater. NOT at my desk surface, that is the heater on the floor, and my feet are still cold. I have my winter coat on. A lot of other people in the office have their coats on. To top it all off, I started sneezing uncontrollably and had to take an allergy pill just to be able to function. This is NOT right. Apparently the receptionist called the building manager but no word back on what they are going to do. This has been going on for over a year as well. It’s actually usually worse in the summer as the AC is even higher and we are all wearing coats at our desk in the summer. Shorts/capris? HAHAHA. I wish I could wear those to work comfortably. UGHHHHH.

Sorry for the rant. This ongoing issue is really grinding my gears. I want to get the Building Managers info and give him an earful (not just about the cold, but also about the recurrence of my asthma from air quality, etc etc….I won’t get into that again).

So yeah. THANK GOODNESS FOR TEA. It’s trying to warm me up and not really working, but it tastes good. See previous notes.

Also, typing has helped to slightly warm up my hands. Lol.

That sounds just awful. I fully understand being freezing all the time. The other woman I share office space with, I’m sure is intent on turning me into an ice cube haha! I hope it gets resolved for you.

@Courtney – sadly it is unlikely to get resolved as this has been an ongoing issue in our office :( I might have to bring gloves! It’s hard to focus when you are cold :(

This sounds just like my office! We’re in this one room where there’s only AC, which runs constantly, and no heat. It’s a freaking ice box all the time. I’m sorry you’re dealing with a freezer office. :-(

@sundaysipping – I am sorry for you too! At least we drink tea to stay warm, I don’t know how everyone else does it with no hot beverages haha I would literally be unable to type

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.

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.
