Did I get the right tea? I don’t see the pistachios at all. The biscotti looks like almonds (but I don’t know much about biscotti.. I think it’s like a crispy cookie?) And what should be honey flakes look like coconut to me. The taste is delicious anyway. Very sweet! And it is cookie-like. The black tea is pretty mild, but that lets the flavors shine. I was really hoping this would be a nice pistachio blend. It’s good but the name isn’t accurate!

Uh I’m sick of winter. How many months of winter are left? Some mornings my throat is so dry that even tea doesn’t help (and I don’t snore! :D) I don’t know WHAT I did before I was drinking tea. I see the good in everything though, so I think winter just helps me appreciate the warmer months more. And it would be boring if it was always the same season… though I wouldn’t mind if it was permanently autumn!

I know… the list of terrible winter things could go on forever, but I won’t mention anything else! sigh.

Yeah, it’s a little annoying when the tea doesn’t seem to match the name, but it does sound good.

I may have to check out that I hate January club too…

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! I was bored one day and found out that most of them have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
40-65 – Okay
1-40 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
