722 tasting notes

meh … it’s a free sample… why not.

i just sorted my teas digitally. i have 126 teas in my cupboard and my goal is to get it to 76. give or take. cuz i have put samples in my cupboard too, but that’s because some samples i’ve already drank plenty of and could easily give them away. this all kinda makes me feel a little better because i thought it was WAY more out of control than 126. even if i could get below 100 i’d be happy. not that i don’t love to have lots of tea! but i do wanna feel like my collection is manageable and like i can give each tea in my stash the attention it deserves.
i would also like to be able to add new teas to my stash immediately, instead of sticking them in tea purgatory (the darkness in the back of a bottom drawer) until i have room to properly open and taste them.

there are 43 teas in my stash that i haven’t tried yet.
i would like to reduce my stash by 50 teas overall if i can.

problem is, my sister is moving-in in 3 weeks and even when we merge our teas since we have many duplicates, she will still be bringing several new teas to the collection. also, soon i am going to europe, and i expect to bring A LOT of tea back with me. (I’m also gonna try VERY VERY hard to only buy samples.)

i’ll just plan to do a big spring cleaning when i get back i guess.

this bigelow isn’t nearly as awful as i assumed it was gonna be. take what you can get bigelow.

I’m trying to clear out the clutter in my cupboard too. I have to schedule a few sipdowns soon.

most of my teas have several cups worth of each left… if not more. whomp whomp no sipdowns on my horizon ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

haha. I have a lot of 3 tsp samples to go through. They all look amazing, so I’m looking forward to it!

Sorted your teas digitally? Did you use the Sttepster cupboard to do that, of something else. I love to hear how people organize their teas

ya i went through and made sure my steepster cupboard matched my real life cupboard. there were a lot of old teas in there. i’m gonna try to keep up with it better from now on. i wanna be able to share more tea with other steepsters in general and figure that’ll help.

oh i also have recently started to make sure that i have just ONE log/review for each tea i’ve tasted. so basically my ‘Tasting Notes’ should be exactly how many teas i’ve tasted to date and my ‘Cupboard’ should be exactly what tea i have on hand.
that’s my current plan at least.

i’m at 212 tasting notes so far. and my one year steepster anniversary is in about 2 weeks :)

Clever. I should make better use of that Steepster cupboard function also. I only remember to add new teas on occasion. I’m always searching for new organization options, but I frequently forget to look at the most obvious places. Thanks for the inspiration.
