I was watching a youtube video and dying of laughter and thought to myself “there are definitely some steepsters who will enjoy this”. That inspired me to go make some tea so I could share the link and still have a reason for posting :P. So basically you guys are slowly creeping into my thoughts more and more…steepster is taking over my life.

Well without further adieu, here is a hilariously adorable of Misha Collins (Castiel from Supernatural) allowing his son to cook thanksgiving dinner: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90tZUltzRBc#t=495. Enjoy!

As for this matcha…

I used a 1/2 tsp in 8 oz of milk for a delicious caramel popcorn treat. There is not much to say other than this is truly an AMAZING matcha. In fact, today might be more popcorn that caramel and that is still delicious. Buttery and oh so sweet. The perfect snack for watching a great clip. Thank you Cavocorax so much for sending this my way. I don’t think I ever would have bought 30 g but having tasted it I think I might end up ordering 60 :P.

So many tomato sauce from a can!

They put the recipe at the end. It is pretty amazing. I especially like the creative use of the beaters.

VariaTEA

haha. There are more too. This was definitely not something that was good to find when I have work I need to do. I am watching this one now: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ToTVFEHZhX4. I am about 2 minutes in and cannot stop laughing.

Bio

After being overweight all my life I finally decided to commit to the long journey of weight loss. When life got too monotonous with all the diet food I decided to try teas in hopes of finding new flavors. I never realized the addiction I would face and now I am in love with all things tea!

However, I am still new to the tea scene and although I have bought many David’s Teas and Teavana Teas I know there is just so much out there to try and I am excited for each and every new experience. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

Well after over a month on steepster, I have learned many new things about tea and my own personal tastes. For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well. Oh and I LOVE Red Leaf Tea’s flavored matcha.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.

Tea Ratings (a loose guide):
1-15 – This cup is going down the drain
16-30 – I will finish the cup but I am not making another
31-50 – I don’t think I like this but I will try another cup just to be sure
51-60 – I am really on the fence about this tea
61-70 – I like this enough to finish what I have but I won’t be buying it again
71-80 – I like this and will buy it every now and then
81-90 – I really like this and will replace it as soon as I can
91-100 – I LOVE this and will buy more before I run out of what I have so that this is never missing from my cupboard
