Additional notes:  Had this one last night as I was surprised it never showed up in the advent this year, when it was on the VIP site.  Second steep tonight.  I like everything that it has going on… mint, smoke… in a blind taste test it would be hard to tell the base.  I bit and ordered from the sale last night MAINLY BECAUSE THEY HAD FIGGY PUD. I was surprised not many of the Christmas teas from this year were on sale.  Mainly just the movie blends.  They will probably have the others on sale in July.   I also had to buy Bonfire Toffee because they had it on the VIP site for a quick minute so I’m not sure if they are getting rid of that one.  Hopefully not.  They had a new wait line on their site which seemed to work better as I only had to hit the checkout button ONCE.

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!
