drank Russian Blend by The Mill
357 tasting notes

I actually tried a new tea last Friday, and it’s only taken me ::counts on fingers:: five days to log it! I guess this shows how out of it I’ve been because when I tried it I thought it was supposed to be smokey, so I was utterly unimpressed. But adding this tea to the database I realized it was just a blend of blacks. Woops. So I feel that I cannot give it a true rating (plus I drank it while having an important meeting with my librarian mentor — so I was even more so distracted). NE

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
