My cupboard currently lists 104 teas, 3 of which are actually teaware and don’t count. But it’s still more than I want so I am in sipdown mode! I’d like to get closer to 80.

I’d like to get closer to having 15-20 staple teas that I always “need” to have on hand, and maybe another 20-30 little sample sizes to play around with. That’s probably not ever going to heppen but…

SIPDOWN!

Becky

I… that’s so many… :O

My mom would kill me if I filled her house with tea!

Cavocorax

Haha. To be fair, most of it is 20g or less. It could all squish onto one shelf of the cupboard but I organize it on the counter for easy access (and bc its my house – #shakesfist)

Becky

Heck yeah! If it was my house, I’d clear out a whole cabinet and go to town. But I have to make room for old-person food and twenty kinds of oatmeal.

Cavocorax

A whole cabinet would be amaaaaazing. :D

Becky

Just thinking about it makes me want to get a million cute little tins for storage and a collection of teacups. Meanwhile, two rooms away, my husband has started to twitch and has no idea why.

Cavocorax

I would love that! If I actually owned my own place, instead of renting, I would have a whole tea nook set up, and all my tins would be color coded. <3 I think I can understand the whole husband twitching in the other room thing. :P

Ozli

OT but saaage sounds so intriguing?!

Cavocorax

It was weird! The first cup, I didn’t mind it so much, but with the second cup I was far more aware if it and it made me think of turkey. And turkey and vanilla don’t go well in my head so I couldn’t enjoy my cup. :p Silly brain.

Ozli

HA! No, that makes sense to me. Lemon-sage sounds interesting though.

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
