gross. since i was in a davids, i picked up this one to try as a cold brew. STEVIA I HATE YOU! that’s right…give me the stupid sprinkles in cherry snow cone over the stevia in this one because it’s all that i can taste. Smells like pink lemonade, first sip is really nice and then…….
ZOMG ATTACK OF THE STEVIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Final Count: 175 ’Cause well cherry snow cone will be in there until tomorrow. :)
Guys…i finally picked this up to try! Basically enough for me to try it two ways so this will be in and out of my cupboard before you know it. I brewed this for about 24 hours and drinking it, it’s really really nice. I know there are better cheery tisanes out there but i am a fan of this one…which makes TWO from David’s that i’ve been a fan of recently… scaaaary!
mmm i need to get on top of trying and drinking through my Norbu teas. They were a guilty pleasure when i ordered them so i’ve been hoarding them for too long. this was the last of the 3 teas i took with me while travelling today and it too was a great choice. bready, cocoa-y delicious strong tea. yum yum yum
this is from the most recent blending of this tea – it’s different than the first time i had it – more citrusy than when i feel in love with it, and less vanilla. that makes me less a fan, but i’m hoping that will even out as it gets a little older lol. either way, one of my travelling teas from today:)
So. yesterday was my steepsterversay except i didn’t drink any tea. So today i’m celebrating with this cup and taking a look back at the last year or two just for fun. :) I’ve not been on steepster for 2 years.

1058 different teas (so i’m up to 1932)
2446 tasting notes (up to 4547 now)
174 teas in my cupboard – with only 4 teas being from 2013 and those from December of that year
I have figured out that i don’t like 52 teas; David’s tea; teavana; adagio much.
I prefer blends that are flavoured with natural flavours OR simply be adding herbs and other fruits/berries etc…
Black teas are still my go to teas followed by puerh, though i am learning to appreciate the occasional green, oolong and white tea.
I have made lots of awesome steepster friends this year and had some great times with ppl learning about their tea preferences and their lives :) After two years around here, I’m still having a blast, loving tea drinking and loving this place! In case you guys didn’t know this – you’re awesome and quite possibly one of the few places on the internet where the trolls don’t come out :)
HAPPY FRIDAY SIL STEEPSTERVERSARY!
Another of the 3 samples sent to me by Green Terrace Teas.
this has been highly reviewed by a number of people so i was a little apprehensive. this tastes sweet. Not quite like honey, but still sweet. I think though, that this reminds me of a more solid TTC tea. There is a strength to this tea that runs through it that makes it different to other sweet black teas that i’ve tried. I’m looking forward to having this a few more times since the samples sent from Green Terrace are quite generous! thank you again Green Terrace! more to come :)
YYZ sent me this one and i wanted to hold off for some time when i had more than 20 seconds to drink it to go through a few steepings. I don’t drink a lot of non black teas but when i do, i try to pay attention to them more than normal because they surely can’t all taste the same – aka “green” :)
Plus this Comes highly recommended by YYZ so yeah :) I followed her steeping paramters and the first few infusions were floral, but smooth, there was no vegetal taste to this, just mildly sweet water heh later steeps this became a little more floral and less to my liking but the first few steeps were pretty tasty. Sadly, greens just don’t have a permanent place in my cupboard but this was rather nice :) thank you, again, for sharing YYZ!
this one might have to rejoin my cupboard. VariaTEA let me try this one and while i haven’t yet been able to get over the smell/sugar ZOMG-ness of the cotton candy yet to try it, i DID get through this one today. As a latte. and let me tell you…YES.PLEASE. I dunno if i could work my way through 100g of this as its a very particular taste but in milk, this is really really really nice. love it!
