739 Tasting Notes

okay yes i have a ton of samples to try. 64 to be exact.
not to mention 25 reviews to write for teas i’ve already tasted.
but why would that stop me from still buying more tea and making more blends?!?!?

Be Nice To Clint.

this blend still needs a little work. but it’s a good start. it just needs more bite is all. i like the puerh because it gives it a leathery note, but i think it mellows out the other flavors too much. the candy apple is barely there despite how “sweet” tasting all the reviews online seem to say it is. so ya takin out the puerh. probably gonna go bold and try gunpowder. i know weird i know.

Version 1.0
candy apple – because, CIRCUS!
pu erh dante – leather and smoke grrrrr
tiger eye – EYE. eyes. ya know, kinda rhymes with “sniper eyes” er, um, that
cornflowers – because, PURPLE!
red peppercorn – “Mild peppery taste with a hint of acidic sweetness” duh you dangerous snarky yet adorable jerk you

i’m making a Hawkeye blend because even though the blenders on adagio get so many characters exactly right, i haven’t seen or tried a good blend that really pins down Hawkeye.
and he is a hard one to pin down. the sassiness of Tony, the ruthlessness of Natasha, the endearing everyman of Casual Steve. Clint has a lot of faces and facets. and you have to if you’re going to be a Secret Agent and a SHEILD Sniper and a Circus Orphan and a Landlord and an Assassin and a Babysitter for your neighbor and an uncertain Dog Owner. and unless you read the comics and read fic and watch the cartoons and the movies i don’t see why anyone would get all his parts and pieces. so no hard feelings.

You make me want to know Clint better!

drank Cookie by Lupicia
739 tasting notes

YESTERDAY WAS MY 2 year Steepsterversary!

i chose this tea because, cookies!

it’s a really interesting flavor, actually not what i expected. but yum. and i will maybe buy some. but even if i don’t get this tea, i will definitely be placing a Lupicia order soon. the infinitely kind and generous jump62359 sent me some MORE Lupicia and Davids samples last week. and then we proceeded to have a heres-a-pic-of-my-swap-samples-stash competition via text. and this is a competition that we both win!

i am still Avengers obsessed. The Cap2 movie killed me. and with my new short haircut i can easily cosplay a drag-Hawkguy or Maria Hill for a future con.
i have resorted to buying trade comics on a regular basis for the first time in my life (Hawkeye, Black Widow, and Secret Avengers) and i love them so much. i take pics of panels with my phone and text them to friends who are forgiving and humor me out of love. and yes the theme song for The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes pops in my head everyday and i hate-sing it as i annoy myself. :)
i have started compiling a list of the Avengers story lines i’d like to read, but if by some strange chance any of you have read some and have a recommendation please share!

Comics and tea! W00t!

Happy Steepsterversary! :)

keychange

Hmmm, in what way was this tea not what you expected? and, happy steepsterversary!

jump62359

Dude. I totally organized my tea on my shelf but then… I drank a whole bunch and now it’s just a freakin pile that looks terrible haha.
But I’m quite honoured that you decided to celebrate with my tea <33

Rosehips

Happy steepsterversary! And many more!

Shmiracles

hey keychange! i guess cuz the description doesn’t really say anything about it, i just assumed it would taste a bit more bready and i wasn’t expecting it to taste kinda toasty the way it did to me. that said, the toasted notes actually make it stand out as unique among the large selection of dessert themed teas that are out there. so that’s a nice twist :)

Thanks to Cavocorax for this sample! So good! I had this tea for breakfast with agave and soymilk and then got my haircut at lunch and bought comic books (http://instagram.com/p/mqZeAxIc_q/) just cuz i can and now I’m using the steepster app to post for the first time yay friday!

ok. nope.
i kept getting an error and my note wouldn’t post.
i’ll have to look into that.

whatshesaid

There’s a Steepster app?! What??

whatshesaid

I looked in the App Store and couldn’t find one….

Nxtdoor

@whatshesaid I believe they are “testing” a beta app for iPhone. It was in the discussion thread a while back if I remember correctly. I don’t steepster on the phone cause it’s too small so I didn’t take part which is why I can’t give you more info. I am sure shmiracles will… :)

whatshesaid

Ohhhh ok. It would be nice to use on my iPad for sure!

Sil

it’s in beta atm

OMGsrsly

My notes won’t post either, so I’ve given up until another update comes out. :/

Shmiracles

i got a new iphone, and messaged steepster help today cuz i couldn’t get the app installed. but i’m hoping it will work on this phone better Fingers Crossed once i do get it installed

oh no DUUUUUDES! i have over 60 teas to sample and that doesn’t include the 19 teas i HAVE tasted but haven’r made notes for yet.

March/April is a big deadline time for me at my job. i need to remember that so i can plan a Vacation for this time next year!
haha no not really.
but i’m really gonna extra enjoy my week in Miami with oddree next month! that’s for sure.

this tea was probably not the best idea for a snowy rainy day? but i was trying to will spring weather back into our skies!! and it’s not warm out, nope, but at least there is no snow!
so it worked! i’m magic! and this tea is magic.
the brew is so clear and light. delicate in look as well as flavor. but a nice nice balance between the greenness and the airy citrus notes.
yum and bright.
i had just a tiny cup, with the intention of getting the sample to oddree sooner rather than later.
thank you Sil for sending this!

Sil

yay! glad you enjoyed it

OMGsrsly

:) I totally understand. And there are so many people on holiday due to it being spring break for the schools… O.o
