Enjoying this tea after a giant crock pot disaster! I exaggerate, I made a botched recipe of mac and cheese, the ingredients should have made a delicious creamy gooey meal, instead it was greasy, chewy and well.. we ate it anyways and I had to throw the rest out (enough for 4 more meals :( ). The joy and disaster of new recipes.

I knew I needed cheering up and a tummy settling, so immediately I craved this tea. I’m on steep number 7, and just now getting the slightest hint of spearmint notes.

I was naughty… I intentionally used cooler water than usual to coax out all the buttery, sweet corn notes I was craving. It worked better than I expected. Each steep was more flavourful than the last – but mostly just the flavours I wanted. That is manipulative of me o_o But I needed it today.

So yes, now the spearmint notes are coming out and tingling the tip of my tongue in celebration of alliteration. The water was the proper temperature this time, so now I will let the tea take me where it wants to. It’s a delicate balance, but we’ve definitely reached an understanding

Bio

You can call me Daisy.

I’m a 24 year old (not so budding) thespian – just moved to the Maritimes from the Saskatchewan Prairies. I’m way too polite, aka Proud to be a Canadian. I love it here by the water – it must remind me of tea or something ;)

My favourite tea companies are DavidsTea and Verdant Tea. They please my palette in different ways – and I love them both for it.

My rating system is as follows:
95-100: I will stock it as soon as I can, if I haven’t already! Permanent collection worthy.

86-95: I would stock this tea if I could, but my collection is just too full to warrant it. But it is that good.

76-85: This is a tasty tea and I will have many cups and share with friends, but won’t go out of my way to keep it stocked.

50-75: It was alright! It was… alright! Not horrible, but I might not re-steep.

25-50: Ew. But I will finish the cup.

1-25: Please no, I want to dump it.


The Steepster community is my safe place. Thank you to all my tea friends!
