Finished this one off, too! Glad to have a decaf for the 7:45 cup of tea. Added some sweetener since I was skeptical of decaf and it turned out about as you’d expect. Probably won’t order again since I don’t normally particularly like either decaf or vanilla, but was glad to have this option when I was pregnant and nursing!

Good to see you back—-are you able to climb back on the caffeine wagon yet?

Good to “see” you, too! I am indeed… though it’s slower than I would have guessed to build tea drinking back in a habitual all-day thing. I tend to get in a cup or two a day and that’s ti. I thought re-engaging with Steepster might help. :)

I’ve been into tea, at some level, since college with a first tin of loose tea brought back by my parents from Oxford. My love of tea increased with a visit to Boston and a chance cup at Tealuxe. Since then I’ve only gotten more interested in tea and have developed more of an appreciation for it.

(updated 12/2010)

100: a perfect cuppa. these are the teas I’ll keep in my cupboard and tend to be one per type of tea.

90-99: will definitely get more of this tea

80-89: likely to get more and perhaps it will become a favorite with time

70-79: very good, depending on my mood or the season

60-69: wouldn’t actively try to get this tea, but also wouldn’t avoid it in a tea shop or restaurant

50-59: run-of-the-mill tea for me

40-49: decent, would hit the spot in some moods, but probably wouldn’t purchase it for my cupboard

30-39: okay, will try again, maybe

20-29: meh. I’d try this tea again if no other were available

10-19: drinkable, but a forced cup

0-9: didn’t even finish the cup
