This new Steepster setup has me feeling all disoriented. lol

As I said before, I don’t have any new teas to review, but sometimes its good to check in, say hello (I still exist!) and to confirm my like of a particular tea. And, yep, I still like this one. :)

I heard that Stacy will be gone for a couple weeks, so I had to get a Butiki order in this weekend. I have two new teas on the way so I’ll have something new to review. yay.

I really am quite set in my preferences now, and this is good for my budget. I’m hoping to spend half as much as I did last year on tea. I’m keeping track in the thread for tea spending here.

My new fun for this year is hanging out at Webkinztown.com because I love Webkinz! (yes Im a grown up, no I don’t have kids, don’t look at me like that! :p)

My little sister sent me one a few years ago and I thought it was silly, but I registered it online so that I could play games with her and I think I am more addicted to it now than she is, its terrible! But hey, no one say I really have to grow up. Webkinztown is just an online forum where I can find other addicts and not feel so crazy. lol.

My Rating System

100 My happiness absolutely depends on it

95 Will definitely repurchase

85: Might repurchase (teas that depend on my mood)

75 Won’t repurchase (but I would drink it again if offered).

65: meh

45: I reluctantly finished a cup.

15: Couldn’t finish a cup.

I simplified my ratings to single numbers rather than ranges because I can’t precisely compare so many teas with a system more detailed than this.

An unrated tea is most often one that I recognize as having significant notable quality, but that does not suit me personally. Sometimes, I leave teas unrated for other reasons, such as I am undecided or I brewed it wrong, etc.

Note: Boiling temp. barely reaches 200 where I am (and a few times it sticks at 195, I assume due to unexplainable shifts in altitude or the position of the moon. . .aliens?. . .).
