♫ The best part of wakin’ up — is Sherlock Holmes in mah cup!♫

I had the last of my sample this morning :( But it’s on the “I should invest in more of this the next time I order from [insert name of tea company]” list. NE with benefits.

I was so into Sherlock Holmes and mysteries growing up. :-)

Dating myself here but my all-time best all time kid Christmas gift ever was a crate full of ALL THE TRIXIE BELDEN MYSTERIES. (There weren’t that many at the time :o) Geeky fourth-grade heaven!

I don’t know that series. For me it was more Sherlock Holms, Nate The Great, and Choose Your Adventure books. I guess you can sorta tell how old I am too.

LOL! Y’all are awesome :) And I also enjoyed Choose Your Own Adventures and was so very excited to find a good number of them at my library.

Profile

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
