This was my 2nd cup of tea at breakfast.
I can’t say I’m a fan, but at least the lavender wasn’t too prominent. I love lavender, the smell of it is wonderful, but I don’t care for it in my tea or in my food.
Gratefully I’m home now, where I have a crazy & wonderful selection of teas that I do love!
BTW…did you know that under the ‘companies’ heading, there are 4 listings each for Stash & for Tazo? This applies to several other company listings as well. If I had more time, I’d go in & consolidate all the multiple listings, just because (look out, here comes a rare left brain moment, someone let Ms Theresa out of the closet) it really irritates me! Maybe a group of us could each agree to take a letter of the alphabet, & clean up that letter, consolidating all the companies & reviews that have multiple listings. Any comments?

Duplicate companies can be merged, but it has to be done by Jason because it is somewhat tricky. A while back they had to fix DavidsTea because there were multiple listings for that company. I think they best thing to do would be to email Jason with an example of the listings that show different company names, and eventually he’ll get to fixing it. It can take longer than merging multiple tea listings, which seems straightforward.

For merging listings of an individual tea, you can email Ricky with both of the listings, and I usually say which one I think is more accurate/whatever for him to use as the primary one, while the second one gets deleted after the tasting notes are moved over. Those he usually gets to pretty quickly, within a day or so.

The problem with trying to do it ourselves is that we can’t move tasting notes! But I send things to Ricky all the time. I feel like I must get annoying but he has thanked me for helping clean up the Steepster database. :)

Thanks Sara!
I was thinking we could go in & edit a Tea, changing the company it was listed under, & all the tasting notes would move with it.
Oh well…I’m not gonna worry about it then.

Yeah I suppose that would work for teas that aren’t double listed under two “different” companies. Of course then the “wrong” company name is still hanging out there in the database and you know somebody will use it again. :P

I cleaned up a bunch of duplicate DavidsTeas recently, as many organic ones were duplicated (people really don’t look before they create a new tea, argh!) But yes, Jason is pretty good at taking care of things/merging duplicates if you find them! It bothers me a lot too.

And yeah, if you can change companies to something consistent (i.e. there are no double-listed teas), that’s a perfect way to deal with some of it! Unfortunately, Steepster won’t let you name two teas from the same company the same thing (unless you’re sneaky and put a space at the end of the name ;) )

Bio

I’m so excited to have found this community! I’m a self-employed Harpist (acoustic & electric – Originals, Classical, Rock, Jazz, etc) & Singer/Songwriter. My days & nights revolve around teaching at home, playing gigs, gardening,& fixing awesome food to eat. My schedule is different everyday, but I just go with the flow, & I sip a lot of tea!

My love of Tea began with Herbals back in the 70’s. One of my favorites was a licorice blend from House of Hezekiah, an old tea shop in Kansas City. There was also a tea with mint, rose petals, chamomile, etc called Nuclear Casual Tea.
In the 80’s I gave up caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, (& a few illicit substances…), and brewed medicinal blends & tinctures to support 4 pregnancies (all children born at home). In the 90’s my love affair with green teas began when I discovered ‘The Republic of Tea’. Their beautiful teas & packaging inspired my original song, “TeaMind”, from my CD “Zen Breakfast”. If you’d like to hear the song for free, drop by my website.

In general, I drink my teas straight, but occasionally I add a pinch of Stevia & maybe some coconut or almond milk (I’m allergic to dairy, gluten, & various other things & avoid most sweets.)

I’ve explored a variety of teas:
Whites tend to be a little bland…sorry
Oolongs – wonderfully sensual
Roobios – I’m not a fan in general
Puehr – a fairly new direction for me
I’m not a huge fan of flavored teas, but I do make exceptions, & I’ll try just about anything once.

And Black Tea, Oh how I love thee!!
I am on a quest for the most wonderful breakfast cup! I will find you, my Love!
