Sipdown #2 of the day! I have had a little bit of this tea kicking around for ages, oh and thank you charchar for the sample of this wayyy back. I have had a few cups but not logged them. The dry smell is predominantly fennel, with catnip haha. Oh that reminds me, before this cup is done I should let my kitty smell it :) The taste is definitely a lot of fennel, and while it is supposed to help with stomach pains, I still find my ginger teas to do a much better job than this one. But it’s ok every once in a while, but for a tummy tea, I’ll stick with ginger, I like the flavor more too haha. A nice one to try though!

ETA – So as to not spam the boards with too many notes, I will log both of the teas I am drinking (caffeinated and non-caffeinated) in the same note. I paired this with Movie night, which I only have enough left of for about 1 cup.

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.
