i am kind of fried. Things are both going supremely well at work, and at the same time, the crap just keeps getting higher and higher and i can’t seem to dig myself out of things. Finally got a little recognition for the work i’m doing, and then by the afternoon i was drowning again in things. Soooo while i’m still working on my sipdowns and the like, i’m also trying to make sure i have plenty of delicious teas at work to get me through the days. Today i remembered to add a small splash of maple syrup to this one for a tasty first tea today :)

I feel your pain with the work stuff. I’m in a similar situation.

I LOVE Crabbies original ginger beer.I have not tried the spiced orange but it is on my list (my liquor store list, that is).

Dude. I was going to drink this tea as well! But I decided for a different peppermint tea tonight :)

Sil

Haha jump
Lala- i haven’t tried original….rwspberry is good but a little more sweet…the orange one has a nice kick to it

I enjoy beer recommendations with tasting notes, although this one doesn’t seem to be available near me

drank Orzo - Caramel & Honey by Lupicia
7609 tasting notes

mmmmmmm so good. Bumping the rating up a little because this was delicious tonight….just the right blend of dark, coffee-like tea. I adore how dark and comforting this one is. for sure one that will continue to rotate in and out of my cupboard when the mood strike!

jump62359

Oohh I think I might actually make a cup of this tonight!

Sil

i really like it…just makes me feel like i almost have a cup of coffee in front of me..only it’s tastier…

drank Nine by Custom-Adagio Teas, Cara McGee
7609 tasting notes

also a sipdown tonight while i tryied to pick out pain colors for our new apartment…so far we’re thinking of orange living room, yellow kitchen and green bedroom…. of course that leaves the hall, two other bedrooms and the bathroom but hey, baby steps. This doesn’t feel very “nine-like” to me, but that’s ok. As with donna noble, a nice tea, pleasant enough to drink but i’m not sad to see it go…i was much more sad to see 9 go lol (and 10 and 11….)

Virginia

Lol pain colors xD

Sil

i KEEP doing that… lol

Virginia

You shouldn’t worry about it. What IS worrying is that I thought “OooOoooOOOoh I wonder what a pain color is!” before I kept reading _

mj

Also, i was not sad to see Donna Noble go. I was not a fan of her as a companion

Sil

I liked Donna for her own reasons….and I really liked she wasn’t in love with the doctor…..and doctor Donna might be one of my favourite scenes…..but I didn’t love her the way I’ve loved others heh

mj

I also liked that she wasn’t in love with the doctor and I liked her grandfather a lot. I just found her irritating pretty much all of the time. Then she was followed by Amy Pond who is my absolute favorite, so in comparison I liked her even less.

sipdown! another tea i was happy to try out, but like most adagio blacks, won’t hit my must haves ever. this time around i got a little more cinnamon and orange, though mostly it was the base + cinnamon. not a bad cup, and i’m happy to have the tins and have explored the teas!

Dear app I hate you changing my tea ratings to 100. This tea, while being wonderful and delicious is not quite 100 for me. Stupid app lol

Courtney

It has mine all pre-set to 0. Uhm, NO.

Sil

weird. mine are preset to 100.

Courtney

Bizarre.

jump62359

drank Caramel-Toffee by Dammann Freres

App logged because my internet hates me right now. It’s enough to say that since I pulled this one out for a swap last night, I wanted it this morning. It was just the right out of sweet for me today.

drank Campfire Blend by Verdant Tea
7609 tasting notes

bumping the rating down on this a little, mostly because i prefer vanilla citrus spice, though this one is still pretty damn tasty. I’m enjoying a cup of this tonight while i finish packaging up a few swaps and packages for tea friends to go out in the mail tomorrow. :) I do like being able to have this one any time though, especially on days when caffeine IS bothering me…not that it happens often lol

Final Count: 131 (thanks to courtney!)

caile

I feel the same about this one. I hope they bring back the vanilla citrus spice once the new spring arrivals come in though – I really miss it.

drank Fresh Bamboo Mint by Steam Tea House
7609 tasting notes

huh. courtney sent this one my way and as a brand new tea! i figured it was worth the pleasure of being tasting note 4200…which isn’t meant so much as a brag, because we all use steepster differently, but more of a way of checking in with myself on how my tea journey is progressing. It will be interesting to see where i land at my steepsterversary in a few months :) I’ve logged nearly 1800 different teas tried, so i figure i’m a little up on that since there are teas that remain unlogged i’m sure.

This tea? A pleasant surprise from courtney and one that i quite like. I’m not generally a fan of green teas, but this one works for me. It’s not really what i’d call a mint tea….strawberry and fruity yes…but the mint (i assume it’s there..) is seriously muted. I feel like the mint is there, because of the way the strawberry is coming through, but i don’t really feel like there’s enough there for me to call this a mint tea. There’s strawberry and orange and bamboo…and a hint of what i’m guessing is the mint. Overall, i really like this! thanks courtney!

Cavocorax

Wow. Just… wow! :DI wish I had the dedication to log as many teas as you do, but I just have days where I’m like, enh, they’ve read my thoughts on this before, I’m not gonna bother.. Congrats!

Sil

i think it’s mostly because i find it relaxing. it’s not dealing with morons, or fussing with politically correct language…or trying to guess how person z will take something…and all the other bullcrap out there… it’s just hanging out with all the cool tea people, having a good time!

TheTeaFairy

woohoo, that’s a whole lotta notes!!!

Courtney

When I find a tea you haven’t tried I feel like the Tea Master. Also, I completely agree with the mint, and I’m glad you enjoyed it. :)

Sil

LOL we still need to swap for steam/bayswater teas courtney so you can try anything you didn’t pick up, that i did…if there are any that is. if not, well that’s cool lol

Sil

OH also have you tried this cold brewed yet C?

Courtney

I haven’t yet. I may put that one in the fridge right now.

mj

I feel the same way about steepster, Sil. I’m new but so far, everyone’s so nice! Probably the nicest bunch of people on the internet.

gmathis

This one sounds refreshing! And ditto. People play nice here. We love that.

boychik

It is very impressive. 4200 congrats!!! I’ve been to diff forums. Steepster is the nicest. I abandoned them. I hate when ppl criticize and pick on each other.

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.
