1135 tasting notes

Hello tea people!! It’s been..half a year since my last note? :P I have been slacking at drinking tea and even worse at logging notes..well maybe I can get back into things! And this is a sipdown so hooray for progress!

This tea is great as usual, eventually I will probably get some more of it, as it’s a sweet delicious morning cup.

And now a life update, if anyone cares – so since June, I’ve started a new job, which was one of the BEST decisions I’ve made so far in my career haha. I am also super close to getting my professional designation in my career, which is epic. Wedding planning is going well so far, busy but fun, getting ahead of the game as our date is next August. What else..went to Hawaii with the fiance in October, that was a good time, got our engagement photos done before that..and yeah, that’s mostly what I’ve been up to haha. Now getting ready for Christmas, and trying to also get back into tea so I stop drinking decaf coconut milk Flat Whites from Starbucks, perish the thought, but I probably drink more coffee than tea now :( but trying to change that in an attempt to start slimming down for the wedding and to save some money haha, since I still have my Gigantic tea stash. Anyways, that’s the life update from me – hope everyone is doing well on here. Hopefully I make a habit of actually writing notes again!

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.
