Hello, everyone! I’ve been away from Steepster because I quit drinking tea for a bit. Something with the change of seasons really messed up my sleep schedule, so I cut caffeine out altogether. But now that I’m no longer doing the insomniac shuffle I’m happily back to my lovely cuppas. Yay!

This is a nice morning mint tea. It has enough of a kick to get me going, but I also find the mint soothing. The smokiness is pleasing and perfect for this time of year. I do think this has lost some of its flavor, but it’s been almost a year since I bought it. There’s only a tiny bit left, so I’ll try to use it up this week.

Keep sipping. How are the leaves doing in your garden?

Incredibly well! I add them directly to my flowerbeds, and my lilies are HUGE. :) For my vegetable garden I add the leaves to my compost pile.

Bio

I have always been curious about tea, but I didn’t give in to a full fledged obsession until 2010. I’ve enjoyed every new discovery, and my garden has loved the mini mountain of tea leaves that’s been added to the soil! Some of my favorite tea companies are:

- Whispering Pines Tea Company
- Zen Tea Life
- Harney and Sons
- 52 Teas
- Teavivre

While drinking tea I enjoy indulging in my other passions which include reading (the classics and mysteries), music, gardening, and crochet. I have a small business called the Leaf Street Thread Company, and I’m excited to have many of my handmade items sold at stores in the Philadelphia area.

My Rating System:

100-95 = Teas I actively seek out and keep in my pantry. If you are a guest in my home chances are I will offer you one or all of these teas. Also, if/when these teas are discontinued I openly mourn their loss.

94-85 = Teas I truly like, often have in my pantry, and sometimes restock. These are my variety-is-the-spice-of-life teas.

84-75 = They’re good teas and I enjoy drinking them on occasion.

74-65 = These teas are ok, but not really my thing.

64-55 = meh.

54-45 = I will if I have no other option.

44 and below = Coffee, please.
