Last week I received a notice from our Internet provider that halfway through the month we (OK, I) had used 16.9gb of our 20gb allowance. I have avoided getting on line. I’m posting today because I am having Steepster withdrawal. Can’t wait for March!

While offline I built an Excel database of my tea stash. Mostly I was trying to learn Excel – my stash just seemed the natural choice for learning. I also taught myself a tiny bit of Visual Basic to come up with a menu to enter new tea. It is totally pointless but kept me off the streets or at least out of my wife’s hair.

I leaned I have 136 teas. The majority are 20g or less. I have my work cut out to catch up with most of you. I added a column stating whether I had reviewed them or not. This shows I have about 36 I have never reviewed.

This has been my tea of choice the last couple days. It smells intense but the cup taste is much more refined. It is sweet and mellow. No bitterness. So glad I overcame my fear of smoke. This is really good.

I think I need to make a tea database, that sounds like a great idea!
I didn’t used to care much for lapsang, but I find that I’ve developed a liking for it recently!

I feel like I’d like lapsang in a travel mug, to enjoy after a morning hike, while watching the sunrise. It’d have to be fall- brisk enough for a sweater. Is that oddly specific? When I sampled lapsang last week that’s the EXACT scenario I felt I needed

Sounds good to me! I have certain scenarios that a perfect for certain teas, so why shouldn’t you? :)

Having a passion for tea and living in rural America is a tough combination. The nearest tea vendor is 65 miles away. Joining Steepster has completely changed the direction of my tea journey.
