I find myself using the term “forgiving” a lot
- guess that’s evolved, in my lingo, to something that’s good understeeped, oversteeped, or with unfiltered work tap water. A tea that doesn’t need to be pampered or coddled and just is what it is.
A crutch. When I’ve been resteeping something a number of times and add a few fresh leaves to the pot to avoid just getting a weak cup, I say I’m giving it a crutch.
I call that life support:)
Papery. I just made this one up, but I sensed I was tasting the teabag as well as the tea.
haha I like to refer to that as gross :P
Papery- The reason I don’t drink bagged teas. I do understand one must do so when away from home. :)
I’m glad to have never experienced a papery cuppa! Although Adagio’s sweet potatoe’s weird texture might be kinda papery, but not in taste.
Clean the Pot Chai: The 2nd infusion of chai tea after making a chai latte or chai drinking chocolate made by not rinsing the measuring cup, pot, leaves or cup allowing the left over milk (and chocolate and/or espresso) residue to flavor the tea.
“chippies” what i have decided to call the so called “leaves” of my honeybush tea lol
I like that!
lol thnx :) i think we should call Matcha “happy dust” even though i know its not dust its powder, i think happy dust sounds better than happy powder just my opinion lol
I’m so using that!
Chippies and Happy Dust…nice!!!!
Shopping listing and cupboarding- putting a tea onto my steepster shopping list or in my steepster cupboard respectively. I find it funny I haven’t found a company that calls their customer rewards program a loyalTEA program.
Vessicles: Those wonderful little bits of orange that stick to your chasen when you whisk 52teas’s mandarin matcha! (Not my own, that’s actually the technical term I was looking for when I wrote my review of it.)
grassy sludge- the term I lovingly use for the matcha powder that can separate from the water and remain at the bottom of your matcha bowl. mmmm…
Economical shopping: Making a purchase when you really shouldn’t, but making sure you get the most items for your dollar (i.e. purchasing cheaper types of matcha). This practice is typically used when a certain dollar amount is needed to recieve free items or free shopping. Also, buying things in advance of when you actually need them because they’re on sale.
That’s what I call buying in bulk. Sometimes it ends up more expensive than I had planned. But in end, I won’t order more tea for a much longer time and I can swap with my brother.
Bulk is in reference to a large quantity of one item though, right? That’s rarely the case w/ my purchases.
Except for my Mayan Chocolate Chai which I now purchase by the pound.
