Hello tea people! It has been a while since I have logged a note…and so much has happened in that time frame haha. So what is new with me, let’s see..I got married and went to Iceland this past August, did my first 10K running race back in June and promptly stopped running so I want to get back into it here soon lol, am still enjoying my new job a lot, and yeah..finally have been getting back into tea slowly! I went on a crazy coffee kick in Iceland (coffee there is pretty good though, I must admit), but that somehow kind of nuked my caffeine intolerance, so now I am kind of okay with caffeinated tea again! :D

So as I attempt to rejoin the community, or at least update a bit more frequently, I will log a SIPDOWN today of this tea. I finished it off at work, yes a caffeine free one, but it was quite good and herbally rose as usual. I need to get my palate more fine-tuned here, it is finely attuned for beer tasting now but lacking in the tea department lately I feel like haha. Anyways, this was a warming cup at work, and I hope to log more cups on here more often :) and post more tea things on Instagram as well!

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.
