1964 tasting notes

I tried to use the new timer feature on the Steepster app and it froze with a minute to go… I realized this when I thought this must have been going for longer than 3 minutes, haha. Luckily I had been planning to have this with milk and sugar anyway.

Also Sipdown, 108. A bit sad to see this one go as it is delicious with milk and sugar. Maybe someday I’ll restock it.

I am trying out the app’s attach photo feature! Interested to see how it comes through. ETA: woah, it changes the photo for the tea! That’s not really optimal. I will change it back in a bit.

You realize nobody knows what you’re talking about unless they got an e-mail to beta test. I can’t do it because I don’t have an Apple product. Wish I could though.

The timer freezes when your phones screen goes dark. There’s a way to fix it and they said they’d work on it. I LOVE the timer idea.

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
