Nooo, why did it have to get cold again? I thought we were done with that!

I was going to have this iced as soon as I got up, but I changed my mind after stepping outside for a moment. Anyway, I’ve got a tall glass and am sipping away. I’ve reviewed this at least 5 times now, and should probably stop.

I’ve beenr ealizing lately that tasting notes are useless for me…since I drink the same dozen teas repeatedly. I’ve got a dozen tasting notes on spearmint, I think. Seems silly!

It does! I guess the only reason I do it is to track what I’ve been drinking when for future reference, but that seems like it might not be a good idea… It’s dangerously close to spamming. D:

I think my quandry rests in that I use my tealog as a personal tea journal – a record of (most) every cup. I LOVE that aspect. But, each of my notes is also used for the Steepster universe as info for the tea. If I post 14 notes about Spearmint it definitely does look like spamming – But i still want to record for myself, in the same place, when I drank the tea and occasionally the story to go with it. I’m stuck in a loop! :)

I think tea logs are mostly for the drinker…but it is always good for the rest of us to know what everyone is drinking regularly and how they feel about it. Single tasting notes are not as apt to get my attention as logs of multiple consumption. Our tastes often change with our mood, the weather, etc. Loop away, Uniquity and Tabby!

Bio

Quiet, strange, and in love with the world of tea. 20-something and living just outside of Atlanta. Cat lover, EBM/synthpop/industrial geek, balcony gardener, and collector of fossils. On the hunt for the perfect tea in each of my favorite categories.

I prefer black teas, but I’m trying to broaden my horizons. My favorites tend to be yunnan tips, earl grey, golden monkey, chai, and keemun. My favorite add-ons are plum, cinnamon, coconut, apple, raspberry, bergamot, cucumber, sage, vanilla, and caramel.

I’m shy about green tea, curious about white, and learning to love oolong. I hate rooibos and anything with orchid, fennel, or jasmine.

I’m currently growing my own tea. I have a 3-year-old potted Camellia sinensis, and I plan on picking a tiny bit of new growth this spring for my first try at drying my own leaves.

Since joining, I’ve traded with: Kaliska, QueenOfTarts, LiberTEAS, JustJames, Spencer, Ninavampi, Jillian, Teafreak, KeenTeaThyme, and RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas.
