I bought this tea for my friends baby shower yesterday, and since it was too hot that no one had tea, hooray, I got to keep it! I tried a Tea-to-go of it last week at the store, and another cup this morning, and I must say, I really like this! It’s a lighter take on EG, but has definite cream of EG notes from the vanilla. Not sure where the white chocolate comes into play, maybe just in the overall creaminess? And I LOVE that it’s a white tea, as I am always on the lookout for lower caffeine teas of my favorites, so this is a nice change that doesn’t wire me up!

Overall, happy I got a bag of this (50g, I don’t usually get that much, but it was for a baby shower lol), and I will gladly drink this throughout the summer as a lighter alternative to regular Cream of EG. Yum!

Also, small life update on me – yes, I’m not on Steepster much anymore, life is taking over as usual, what with my garden starting up after a very late spring, my engagement (!!) in March, studying for a big exam to further my career, and just my work in general, as well as various other fun factors (my friends wedding this past fall, her upcoming baby, family visits, etc). Hoping to get drinking more teas this summer as I start cutting out more sugar from my diet to get in shape for the wedding next summer haha. And I do miss my tea, and the time I used to have to make it all the time!

@tea-sipper – Thank you! Yes life is exciting and fun and a bit stressful at times, tea is very much required most of this year to help provide some stability I think! :D

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.
