Sil talked me into splitting this and I’m happy I did. With a name like Steamed Purple Green, I thought it would taste a lot like spinach, and less like ‘tea’ but it’s actually balanced right in between. It’s fresh, green, and buttery but not in your face with the vegetal/spinach flavours. Interesting! I’m not a huge fan of green teas (I have 1 oz of Laoshan Green that I’ve had maybe 2 cups of in 8 months? :O) but I do like this!

Thanks for twisting my rubber arm! :)

ETA: Hey – when you guys track tea in your spreadsheets, and you have tea you bought at two separate dates, do you count that as 1 tea, or 2? I want to keep them separate because I want to accurately track my old teas, BUT I don’t want to stuff my cupboard full of ‘extra’ teas. :D

ETA-again: I decided to count each duplicate tea as a fraction (.5, .5) instead of doubling my count. So I’m actually at 185. I’ll take it! And if it’s a fraction, I’ll remember to double-check for the other one when I remove one!

OMGsrsly

I number the one ‘in use’ and leave the other one blank. :D That way it’s only “one” tea, but I have 2 dates.

So what kind of spreadsheets do you use for this? I’m intrigued.

Sil

my cupboard counts it as 1 tea… my spreadsheet has the oldest date and then in brackets for the tea name i put the second date so that when i finish it, i just put in the next date lol

I haven’t graduated to spreadsheets yet. lol

Just Excel. I have columns for type of tea, company, name of tea, who gave it to me, who I’m giving it to, date purchased, original purchase size, estimated remaining size, my rating, a quick Y/N/M if I’d rebuy it or not, a Y/N column for cold-steeping and then notes. After I drink it I move it to another page for reference. It works for me – it’s much quicker to filter/search in Excel then it is on Steepster. :P

And thanks guys. So I am at 185! :D

Go Cavo Go! I’m still at 250, and I still have the tea box, and there’s incoming as well. :) Oops?

I got into the excel sheets a few months back and think it’s great for organizing. For those that don’t have excel and can’t afford it LibreOffice is a free program with Calc being like Excel. I’ve worked on it before and it’s great. You can open Excel files with it.

OMGsrsly

Ubacat, I just use google docs. That way I can access it anywhere! Well, mostly when I’m out buying tea and want to make sure I’m not getting anything I don’t already have, or have tried and didn’t like. Which can be a problem.

Cavocorax

Yeah I did Google docs for a bit bc it was just so convenient on my android phone! Now that I’m back on a windows phone, I’m back with Excel. :P

And good luck with the tea box OMGrsly!

OMGsrsly

Sadly I haven’t been drinking much tea at all. Too blah, which is unfortunate. Maybe I’ll go make a cup and cut out another t-shirt. :)

Cavocorax

Yay! At least it’s just tea you’re blah about. You’ll come back to us!

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)
