Still roasty , mellow and delicious.

While sipping it I am thinking of Steepster, people here and tasting notes.
Since I joined Steepster 2 years ago a lot of folks here who have just “disappeared” and I was thinking of their last note. Did they know it was their last one? Did they feel sick and tired of writing notes ? Did they decide to only drink tea for themselves ? Did they have a major issue ? No chance to know the answer.

I’m feeling myself more and more lazy with my notes, saying less and less. Am I tired of teas ? I feel more like I would like to spend more time with some teas probably rather than trying news so often.
Sorry I am boring tonight :(

I’ve been on here for a long time now, but I have not been writing down all the teas that I have been drinking. I think I just haven’t had much time to write these days. Perhaps a bit lazy too.

Ysaurella and boring never belong together :-)

I also wonder about our friends who disappear…and i think I understand what you are experiencing. Most of the time, I just want to enjoy my tea and not think about what I want to write. That’s why I don’t review much. There’s nothing wrong with spending more time with your tea, as long as you don’t forget to pop up once in a while to say hi, other wise, YOU KNOW I will give you a little poke out of concern, we cannot afford to loose you to the disappearing ones :-)

I understand how you feel, & I have been thinking lately that I have written multiple reviews on many teas, & have nothing left to say about them. Yet, I still want to drink them, I still love them. But I don’t want to be redundant.

It is easy to get caught up in the every day concerns of life :-(

I know I have less to write about here – I have less new teas, I am drinking my stash, have some definite views about where and how to spend my next tea splurges. So well, there is only so much one can talk about tea. I hope to not disappear without saying a word though (and autumn, autumn is always my tea restocking time of the year) – and madam, we absolutely must have tea together one day, in Paris or Lisbon (or Sintra, yeah that would be the place!)!

First, please forgive me for my English and all the grammatical mistakes you’ll find in my posts.
As English isn’t my mother tongue it sometimes makes things more difficult to express cleverly and accurately what I feel.

I was mainly in black flavoured teas, green as well if not bitter.
I’m now drinking much straight teas because my palate is now developed enough to appreciate them .

My favourite brands are : Mariage Frères,Theodor,Butiki Teas,Dammann Frères, Betjeman & Barton.
My ratings are as follow :

100 to 95 : my darlings; always in my cupboard

94 to 90 : Excellent tea, often in my cupboard

89 to 80 : very good tea, a pleasure to drink it

79 to 70: not bad even nice, why not having it sometimes, but well, not so urgent !

69 to 50 : Meh, deceptive or just not for me – but has some qualities

49 to 30 : I just don’t appreciate it

Under 30 : is this tea ?!?!?
