OMG – a moment of Steepster not being bogged down. Quick – to post my tasting note!

Well the other review that is listed here was quite dismal but I thought this stuff was terrific. Honestly, I have no idea if there is anything in it aside from black tea and ginger root which I probably could have made myself.

Anyway, it works for me. I love ginger and the black tea base is rich and dessert-like. I checked out the wet leaves and it looks like a CTC assam or something similar. I had a ton of ginger bits in my loose leaf bag and the other taster did not so perhaps tea bags are just not the way to go with this one. Spicy, zingy and flavorful. I had some after lunch and it is squelching my post-salad sweet tooth. I will definitely want to keep this one around. Sometimes simplicity is the essence of perfection, isn’t it?

I’ve been writing my reviews in a word processor and would then attack Steepster when I have the chance!

TeaBrat

@Incendiare – I have seriously been considering that too!

Kittenna

@Incendiare – Likewise. If tomorrow during the day is bad again, I’m just going to avoid Steepster until the late evening. It seems quick enough now.

ahhh I missed that window! but it seems to be ok now. To bad I haven’t had my morning tea yet!

MMMMMM…….Ginger. :))

I usually do tranfer my reviews from a WP, or “right click” COPY my reviews on Steepster now, before I submit a review. That way if they don’t post, I can just PASTE the review and resubmit it. :))

Profile

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
