Which new features do you want the most?
Having tasting notes for teas go from newest to oldest. Being able to sort your own notes by company.
+1 Having tasting notes displayed from newest to oldest would be very helpful as teas can vary from one year to the next due to climate, weather, annual rainfall, etc.
Searching through a popular tea such as the Golden Monkey (9 pages & 82 ratings) looking for the most recent tasting notes is not very time-efficient.
It would also be helpful to have a question on the “Review this tea” form that asks what year the sample was grown or purchased. Thanks!
It would be nice to be able to add any ingredient when adding a new tea, rather than having to choose one from the drop-down menu. Some ingredients aren’t in there so it gives an incomplete description.
I wish the forum search function was better, for example using quotes to get an exact match. If I search for “golden tips tea” I don’t want to see golden dragon, gold tea, etc. It’s really hard to search for past threads.
I may have missed it, but there seems to be no way to see an overview of your subscribed threads on the website. This would be nice, as I sometimes cannot find back my thread if I want to see if there was anything new yet, and I don’t like to always get mails for every thread I replied to.
Ability to share your tasting notes on social media sites.
I would really love an app for Steepster on Android. There are several tea type apps on iPhone already (Tea for iPhone, Tea 2.0), but none of any similar type on Android.
Search should have a “sort by..” option after the search runs. I often have a craving for a certain flavor of tea (just now, I wanted something Roasted), but there is no option to sort within the search by Highest Rated or Sort by Most Popular. I literally have to click on every single result (often 20+ pages) to find the good ones.
I would like it if there was a way to favorite threads so you didn’t have to go hunting for them when you want to make a new reply.
Editing a note is still the hardest thing to do on this website. Trying to find a note you’ve done in the past is what makes it hard. The alphabetical way of doing it seems to be broken.
It still really kills me that I can’t rank specific teas that I search. So if I search for Osmanthus, it shows me the teas that match the search, but I cannot sort them by rating or additional data. They don’t even have their number ratings visible I think. Is there something I am missing or is this feature completely missing?
