So most of the province is under a heat advisory…with temps soaring up to above 30 C…and I am going to one of the FIFA games tomorrow HAHA. That might not end up going well. I’m kind of hoping the person I’m going with decides we should not go and then we can just go somewhere with AC out of the sun haha. Ugh.

I made a minty hot tea this morning, but I think this weekend I will bust out my iced tea pitcher for the first time this year and make a few (dozen) batches of non-caffeinated teas. I feel like I shall melt haha. Oh, and this tea is minty and good as usual. See previous notes!

Are you in BC? Stay cool! Spring has hardly hit here on the East Coast, let alone summer. Low 20s, but forecast of 14 this Sunday! Climate change is feeling pretty real this year.

Haha no in AB! We rarely get heat like this, I guess usually one week of summer, I’m hoping this is the last one! I prefer it a bit cooler. I would love to be where you are! I’m good with low 20s :) climate change is definitely having a impact, both with winter and summer. Kind of scary!

I enjoy the low 20s as well BUT it hasn’t been consistent so the lakes are still cold and I haven’t been swimming yet this year. Which I do NOT appreciate! Our winter was horrible, the worst one in my (shortish) lifetime. It was comparable to winters 50+ years ago..and the one before was no picnic either. :(

Eat lots of cool things and remember to stay hydrated. Good luck!

We have been around 40C here in the south but we are more used to it. That sounds really high for up there and I hear that a lot people don’t have air conditioning. Stay safe! I actually have gotten dizzy twice lately – once working in the yard and once while out running errands.

I need to move up your way.

@Uniquity – yeah your winter was horrible! Ours was surprisingly mild and not as prolonged as other years. We really need rain here or there will be a drought this year though! I survived the soccer game though! Lots of water and a giant sun hat :D

@ashmanra – ugh we only get 40C here rarely and those days I can’t even leave the house, no idea how you guys deal with it! Don’t get too warm, heat exhaustion is the worst :(

@mrmopar – haha for the one week of hot weather or the usual lack of it? :)

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.
