And another sipdown! (I brewed these last two timolinos just for the sipdowns. :P Now I’ll have plenty of room for the tea I ordered from Della Terra and Bluebird)

This one is pretty good but as far as Yerbe mate teas go, I think I like Chocolate Rocket better! Maybe I’ll add a dash a milk…

CrowKettle

oh, wow! You’re rocking through sipdowns. I need to catch up ;)

Cavocorax

I was lucky. Those three were nearly done so I picked them. I ended up trading a bunch I wasn’t keen on too. Now… I can relax until my orders cone in!

Sil

never relax! that’s when the tea orders strike from behind!

Cavocorax

:P Judging by your tea count, I’d better take your advice!

Sil

Cavo… seriously. small amounts of tea are my friend now. it’s like 1 whole ounce!?! but that’s so much!

Kittenna

Haha, I now consider to be anything more than 2 cups’ worth to be “a lot”. Best advice: if a tea you like is easily available, stick to 25g or less amounts (unless you literally drink it all the time). That way when you find something better, you’re not stuck with a ton! And swap! Swap swap swap to try new things! Don’t let your cupboard get like mine… Sil’s is nothing… (and I’ve only been really into tea for about 15 months).

Cavocorax

I totally understand that! I went from buying tins full of tea, to 2 oz, and now that’s way too much. I think 30-50g is pretty good, depending on the tea.

CrowKettle

I’m beginning to lean to smaller amounts at one time too. I tend to feel bad when I swap away the teas I don’t like but there’s usually someone out there who’ll like it (hopefully).

Profile

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)
