87

Additional notes: testing testing. I doubt this will post. Steepster has been weird. Just wanted to say sipdown! This still has a bit of a chocolate flavor left after ALLLL these years. More than I’d expect. It was a good one – thanks for creating it StarFevre! What I was really looking for was Reichenbach Recovery this morning, but I don’t know where that is right now.
2020 Sipdowns: 87

The Dashboard is broken (yet again… sigh. I need one of those “Steepster has been working for X days” scripts that I can just reset to satisfy my own morbid curiosity of how high it actually would ever get, because I doubt it would make it to the double-digits). I’ve been using https://www.steepster.com/recent to read new posts because I don’t want to fall behind (and have a feeling when the Dashboard is “revived” it’ll start off “blank” again like last time) but since most people don’t bother to read anything EXCEPT off their Dashboard and nowhere else, anything being posted right now is pretty much being ignored. For that reason I’m just sitting on my own reviews (which I write on an external .txt file anyway) until things get fixed…

haha yes. Just got the e-mail alert you posted this comment… then everything dumps at once. Just as long as the admins are trying. And it looks like the ‘more’ button is working for the older notes before the crash, so that’s an improvement anyway.

I did assume the worst and figured we’d get a blank Dash that had to “repopulate” again. Think I’ll hold out a bit more after the dump before posting my weekend steepings. :-)

Better get blank Dashboard than not working at all! It seems it works again, even with written tasting notes! Happy about that, but bit afraid if it is gonna happen again?!

Mastress Alita: I didn’t know we could that with the “recent” thing! Thanks! I do only see dashboard because I didn’t really realize we had another choice!

My icon photo is Richard Mayhew from the graphic novel ‘Neverwhere’ by Neil Gaiman, Mike Carey & Glenn Fabry.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), turmeric, bee pollen, charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. (Or as evidenced by the great computer hiatus of 2019, something happened to my computer.) :D

Happy sipping!
