I didnt have time to read every comment so if this was already suggested,i second that!
A feature to show your teawares;Teapots,cups,trays etc..
that might be fun.

Various versions of that idea have been mentioned. There is a flickr group/album whatever but I don’t flickr. Also the search function will help you not have to read thru all 23 pages:)

The ability to tick “appointments by request” and/or a “special notes about this tea place” section when adding a new tea place under the “places” section.

For forums, I’d love to see the most recent posts appearing first, rather than having to do the 2 extra clicks (1) on the last page number and then (2) when you get there the most recent is still at the bottom of that page.

This may have been mentioned already, but I’d love to have a way to create tags for teas I’ve logged.

It also occurred to me that it would be nice to be able to mark teas as once-this-was-in-my-cupboard as opposed to what is currently in your cupboard and possibly a way to designate how many times you have bought a particular tea.

Cofftea said

Could the tasting notes work to note that? I mean there are some cases where you drink tea out of your home, but still. May work.

loupea said

Yeah, it does sort of. But I’m a bit of a tag addict. I’d like to be able to click and see all the teas I’ve bought in a certain year, or had at restaurants, or bought at a particular store, etc., with one click. Lists are just an easy tool to organize large chunks of information into more manageable bits.

A chat bar at the bottom of the site would be an excellent way of making fellow tea-loving friends!

I don’t know how many times this has been suggested- maybe Jason will listen soon:)

I didn’t even know I wanted this, but I had a dream last night that I went to my shopping list and could check mark the ones I wanted to purchase. One stop shopping! I know this would be way too hard to implement, but I was really happy until I woke up. This might mean I’m spending too much time here…

Haha funny!

New here, just exploring the site atm, and have a few thoughts.

I drink tea gongfu style, which means very short steeps and lots of leaves, which also means that

1) The “steeping time” function on a tea is pretty useless, because the minimum is 15 seconds. Since I steep my tea multiple times in any given session and the times will vary, is there a possibility of having a “gongfu style brewing” checkbox and dispense with the steep time that way?

2) Ditto for water temp, which sometimes changes as I make my tea.

Additional feature for the ‘Places’ section, concerning closed shops:
1) have the ‘closed’ status visible on the list page
2) have an option on the list page to show only shops that are open (not closed)
or add open/closed to the ‘filters’.

Cofftea said

I definitely agree w/ your 2nd point.

It would be nice if the closed shops could be removed from the list. I know one of the ones listed near me has been closed for a couple of years now.
