73

Sipdown! I’m glad to be under 70 teas but I’m sad to see this one go. After that first pepperoni misunderstanding, I think we were starting to grow close.

Not much in cedar today, but lots of sweet buttery earth- makes me think cinnamon. I’m not sure if that last note is intended or if it’s just because it sat beside Jackie T’s winter chai in my cupboard for four plus months. Either way, the overall outcome is delicious. Thanks again for the samples, Jackie T.

Under 70? That’s awesome! How far are you trying to go?

Here’s another little trick with puerh…get some real cinnamon chips (not powder) from a supplier like happyluckys.com or savoryspiceshop.com and add just a few to puerh you’re not fond of rather than chucking it. Unless it’s horrid…you’ll have a nice spicy tea..sweeten and it’s like chai.

After this puerh adventure I think I’d like the addition of cinnamon. I’ll definitely check that out! Do you have any recommendations of a good puerh with a strong cedar/wood note?

I don’t know what I’m trying to reach, Cavo. When it comes to ordering more teas I love (Vicky’s Spongecake, Earl of Anxi, Caramel Vanilla Assam, etc.) I’m happy where I’m at. I don’t think I feel like exploring a lot of new teas until I hit 50 though, and then it’s more a matter of having +300g of really old stuff.

Bio

I started my Steepster loose leaf adventure back in 2012. I can’t say I’m completely new anymore, but I still view oolong as a magical, extraterrestrial creature that unfurls in water.

Tea Preferences: My absolute favourites are the floral inclined oolong and white teas. I also enjoy unflavoured green and black teas. Puerh is a hit or miss.

Fruit, cedar, anise, and vanilla are good. Black licorice, bergamot, and cheap chocolate are less good. Jasmine, cinnamon, and hibiscus are usually too strong in teas for my taste, but otherwise I like these flavours!

Ratings:

95-100: A Personal Favourite; I’m never without this tea.

90-94: Great! I’ll try to keep a small amount around.

80-89: Enjoyable; I may buy more at some point.

70-79: Nice, but not something I’d drink often. I may have a few problems with it.

50-69: Something about this tea falls flat for me. Still drinkable.

30-49: This isn’t a particularly pleasant cup.

1-29: There’s no way to put it nicely..
