1135 tasting notes

Darn, I haven’t written a note on this one of it by itself yet, and I’ve drank it a few times. This morning, I mixed 1.25 tsps of this with about 1 tsp of guayusa. It’s a Monday, so caffeine is needed..my weekend was not the best, and I feel very tired today. I also tried Grappa for the first time last night, so that might be adding to my not as chipper state this morning lol. Anyways, this tea is quite tasty on its own, tart and juicy, and with the guayusa added it retains those qualities but I guess there’s now the sweet guayusa rainforesty flavor in there. I thought it was weird at first, but it’s actually not bad. Oh, and on a sad note, my tea is barely hot, my timolino’s vacuum seal must be slowly fading..boo. Anyways, this is a nice refreshing beverage this morning. Hopefully I’ll get some energy, although I’ve been having chips and candy for breakfast, so that is maybe helping as well (don’t even ask lol).

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.
