drank Dulce & Banana by DAVIDsTEA
737 tasting notes

my own special version, which is where i take the chamomile stems and flowers out of the tea.
cuz i don’t like chamomile very much and this improves the flavor greatly in my opinion.
RIDICULOUS i know!
but i do like it this way. and it’s yellow warm and yummy nana flavor goes nicely with today’s overcast sky.

Shmiracles

haha! if i could give you my Dulce & Banana i totally would (but i have very little left). i have to confess, i picked the chamomile buds out of it too. …and i like it more now.

when my order of tea arrives i’m totally gonna lay all the packages out on my bed and roll around in them.

Uh,Thanksgiving?

this writeup was posted 4 months ago. i’m consolidating some reviews and deleting useless ones. but also sometimes i find a typo and just can’t help myself from correcting it! and it always moves the review to the top again.
SO my question to you guys is HOW ANNOYING is this to you? should i wait and update all my tea posts at 5am while i do this consolidation so less people have to see them all and i don’t clog up anyone’s dashboard too much?

Kittenna

@gmathis – ehehehe, I do the same thing. My teas. My pretties. Lol.

@Schmiracles – It’s annoying, but do what you want with your reviews (I do!). It’s an irritatingly-designed system that never used to behave that way, but it’s not the user’s fault at all. I edit my entries all the time, and if people don’t like it, I’ll suggest they use the ‘Explore’ feature instead of the dashboard. Posts don’t pop to the front there. Or unfollow me :P It doesn’t greatly bother me, because I “like” most reviews I read, and so I can see if I have already read it. If by chance I haven’t, then I don’t care if it’s old and I’m reading it four months later. I like old reviews all the time.

Shmiracles

hey Kittenna, ikwym!!! i actually “like” almost every single post that comes through my dashboard. mostly cuz i just love the conversations!! steepster is so free from the usual angst or competitiveness of other social boards that i just wanna hear what everyone has to say all the time!
also sometimes i just see a typo i made that i just MUST CORRECT hah! i don’t mind other people’s old post popping to the top at all. in fact it would probably be wicked cute to see some of the comment conversations i had over 6 months ago.

Shmiracles

sometimes i will open my tea drawer, and i think i am trying to pick a tea to have next, but really i’m just staring at them and touching their canisters lovingly.

Kittenna

Yeah, I know – I love reading everyone’s stories, and seeing them progress! And reading the comment convos is great too (liking, of course, also gets them all emailed to me, so I can keep up with things!)
