drank Rooibush Eggnog by TeaGschwendner
4044 tasting notes

sipdown! (169) not too shabby for being sick, not concentrating on sipdowns and having awesome tea friends make my cupboard explode on the day before the end of the year. lol 30 more days to see if i can get down at 150 just for fun!

This was another tea from the lovely missB I’m not a huge fan of eggnog – something about the texture makes me NOT want anything to do with it. But i DO like creamy, delicious vanilla type flavours – which this most certainly is. I haven’t had eggnog in years, so i have no clue how close to eggnog taste this is…but it’s what i want eggnog to be like – creamy and delicious with no funny weird textures :) thanks for sending this my way missB! I quite like it, and it’s not necessarily something i’d have picked myself :)

Edit: i Started the year having tried 1398 teas since i joined steepster…total as of the end of today 6 new ones! (1404) Let’s see if i can make it another few hundred by 2015 haha

OK so when I read this I thought you were saying you had 1398 teas is your cupboard. Ha ha. You’re doing good if you down to 169 now. Ha ha.

MissB

Oh gosh. See, this is why I ask if you have dislikes, so I can avoid that kinda stuff. Although… it seems this was a good choice after all! :)

Sil

No way missB! I like trying things…..even if I don’t like something ill still try it. Eggnog I don’t like because of he the texture…the flavour has always been something I could get behind.

Also lala….if my cupboard was that big I’d have a heart attack….300+ was too much for me haha

Terri HarpLady

Yay for trying so many teas!!! Go girl!
I’m in the process of re-organizing my stash. Once I get it all in order, I’ll do a count. I’m guessing 300+, hahaha

You all make me want to reorganize my stash…My steepster cupboard is so not up to date! I lost control about a year ago when I went over the 300 mark. (Terri I do sympathize!) then, after getting rid of more than half of it (gifts and gifts and more gifts and not ordering for 6 months) made it a lot more manageable. But after a slip through black friday, I feel a little out of control again :-0

Sil

I force myself to keep it organised at least in terms of steepster having the teas that are in my cupboard. It’s a fast way to see if my numbers are creeping up and makes sure i know whats there if i forget something

Bio

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
