Hi Everyone…Zach here. I’ve been using Steepster to log some tastings for a while now, and I am looking to connect with more people! Looking forward to meeting you all and please check out what I have been drinking, and I’ll do the same. See you on Steepster!

Hello all….I bought some tea for a brother last Christmas, and wound up getting hooked the the stuff myself!

My taste tends to favor the strong black teas, but i have several nice oolongs in my cupboard as well as a couple of really good Darjeelings. I’m just know beginning to explore the area of green tea.

I’ve on Steepster for some time, but have just found the confidence to start logging my tasting notes.

Looking forward to meeting my fellow Steepsterites.

New people, make sure you read notes on how to get free sample tea from Teavivre. No shipping cost or anything. Most of us have received tea from vendors who want us to try their tea, write reviews and purchase what we like (hopefully). No strings attached naturally.

thanks for the tip!

Hi Bonnie, How do we get the free samples?

Bonnie said

www.teavivre.com look on the right lower side to where it says ‘Free Tea’ tasting activities, free tea writing reviews. They send you tea without you getting ad’s or any strings attached other than you should review the tea on Steepster. It takes about a month to get the tea. When you have finished reviewing the first round of selections, you’ll be offered more. (Over time I’ve received about 30 samples).

Thank you Bonnie I’ll check teavivre soon

Long time tea drinker and Steepster lurker. I’ve always enjoyed reading everyone’s tasting notes and I have based some of my purchases on them in the past. Would love to get into trying out different tea, purchasing from recommended vendors, swapping and just getting to know people that shares my interest in tea. I still need to really get into updating my cupboard list :)

welcome out from the lurking! :)

RogersCK said

Thank you. I will definitely check it out :)

Hi Bonnie, since I don’t keep my own blog right now, do I put down my steepster link as my blog address?

Bonnie said

Good idea. Angel will contact you probably with a message on Steepster(see the envelope at top of dashboard to the right) and will ask for your address.
