::bangs head against a stone pillar:: What is wrong with me?!?! I’m struggling to enjoy black teas, and I really would like a healthy relationship with them. This is probably an excellent Irish Blend (I do like it more than Stash’s bagged version), but for me it’s a black tea that reminds me how frustrated I am with my taste buds. And of all the flavors this tea claims to have I think the only one I picked up on was prunes.

I’ll be going to a green tea tasting class this Sunday to get a better handle on that type of tea – I must remember to ask them if they plan on having a black tea class in the near future. Until then I think it’s time for me to start experimenting with additives (like a sweetner) to see if that will bring me around to the dark side. M

sweetie – (I just saw bones last night on TV and that’s what Angela always calls everybody) – banging your head on a stone pillar does not a healthy relationship make! Take a step back, breathe, think calming zen-like thoughts …. breathe!

Aw, thank you – I needed that! I think that I was being a bit overdramatic, just a bit, but I really am frustrated that the black teas haven’t been as rewarding as the others so far. ::big zen breath:: I’ve also been meaning to get around to watching Bones (but I need to catch up on Angel first and before that I need to finish Firefly – tee-hee!).

BUSY busy! I know what you mean though – my son bought 7 seasons worth of the TV show ‘24’ on dvd and I am on like the 4th season or so and I am now a zombie from dvd-ing …! We did the same thing on ‘Bones’ though we rented those dvds (all the seasons released) from the public library!

Bio

Proud all-around nerd, crafter, and brand-new Assistant Library Director. Give me an engrossing book and a wonderful cup of tea and I’m in heaven.

After being a barista for almost a decade it wasn’t until 2010 that I discovered loose leaf tea. Now I’m hooked.

How I use Steepster has been evolving since I joined. Yes, I use it for my personal “to buy or not to buy” info, but I’m enough of a goofball that I hope it can amuse others more often than not.

I’ve also started to become anal about my tea (times and temps). That’s surprised me. I finally realized that I should respect the leaves like I used to respect the beans. I also take my tea plain unless otherwise noted.

There’s really nothing remarkable or noteworthy of how I rate teas. I do take it a tiny further step to help clarify the muddled middle grounds for myself. TG is a definite repurchase. Anything below that is less and less likely.

TG=Teagasm
NE=Nice Enough
M=Meh
GA=Gods-Awful
