Decided to mix it up a bit and bring this to work (considering how sick everyone seems to be I thought it might be a nice boost to my system). Several coworkers asked to smell the bag and both said that they liked it. This surprised me since I do find it quite a medicinal fragrance — who knew? I’m thoroughly enjoying this without honey today. NE

A cuppa sans sugar/sweetener?! Are you feeling all right?! ;)

I haven’t posted on here for quite some time, but here’s the dichotomy of me: I LOVE LOVE LOVE sweet things, but I like my teas without anything added. Weird, but true :) So for me to add honey to my tea is somewhat controversial in my mind ;)

Here’s something perhaps more controversial. I LOVE tea! I never drink it when I’m sick (flu). That’s the only time I use to drink it when I was a boy. So I’m glad I grew out of the “tea when sick” phase. Now I enjoy tea (almost) anytime I want! :))

I hardly drank tea at all as a tyke, but I have fond memories of my Grandmother drinking Constant Comment. Even now I go through phases of feeling rather ambivalent about tea (usually summers). But when I’m in a tea phase – woah!

ScottTeaMan

When I got a little older I drank tea with my Grandfather….fond memories!

I usually don’t add, either – just teasing a fellow (sugar) addict. I do add to spicier teas (I think it brings out the flavor) and tarter teas, to balance the hibiscus-ness.

ScottTeaMan

I’m not all that Keen on hibiscus. :))

Rabs

I’ve only tried a hibiscus-ey tea once. I looked like a toddler who tried his/her first bite of a pickle. ::shudder BLECH:: ;) And I totally did the spoonful of sugar last night. Ugh. I think I’m craving Christmas Cookies.

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
