so SO happy to have this back in my collection. and Fresh!
I had saved a tiny amount for months and months and it got stale, bleh. Fresh is good.

I made some iced tea today, hot over ice. I definitely prefer a coldbrew for this one (and other teas with melty bits). I just don’t like the cloudy “texture” of this tea when brewed hot then chilled – but I know the flavour is just as delicious when I coldbrew – so I’ll do that next time!

Just have to think in advance ;)

Nah 100 is fine! Usually people spend $10 – $15 at work (Calif.) on secret Santa or more. My office it was $20.

Thanks Bonnie! Yeah I thought 50g just wasn’t quite enough – especially if you’re going to the trouble of buying something special and mailing it off. My thoughts anyways :) Thanks for the input!

Kittenna

I don’t know if you mentioned this elsewhere, but it’s not all of one tea, is it? As long as it’s not, 100g would be a good minimum IMO.

Dinosara

I agree with Krystaleyn, I would want more than one kind of tea because honestly I rarely buy 100g of one tea for myself because it takes me a while to drink it. On previous Steepster secret swaps I think there was just a $15 minimum, and then do what you like with it.

DaisyChubb

Oh yeah, no it wouldn’t be the same tea haha – just a minimum amount of any kind of tea 10 kinds of 10g, 2 kinds of 50 g, just something to keep it equalish :) That should equal around 15 bucks – I’ll try tea amounts this time and if it doesn’t pan out, I’ll just do a dollar amount next time. Thanks gals – I should have the swap up soon! Appreciate the feedback!

On a different note, it’s pouring outside holy. the weather is wet here!

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!
