Additional notes:  Sad sipdown!  Creamy and nutmegy until the delicious end.  Sadly no other tea shop has invented a “nutmeg cream” tea yet? Very rich black tea.  I will miss it.  Comforting today when I wish the world would just stop flying around everywhere.   I’m on a personal roll for sipdowns lately (not as many sipdowns as most of you though!), but I’m only doing well on sipdowns because my collection is mostly samples of teas… 

2021 Sipdowns: 17 (This + AprTea – Anxi Tieguanyin Deep Charcoal Caramel Aroma Grade One)

I just gasped and then sighed reading what you got to sip on! I remember loving this tea! Glad you got one last cup!

:D Yep, the joys of hoarding tea.

Hmmm, now I am thinking about adding a little nutmeg to one of my vanilla blacks to see what happens…

I occasionally add nutmeg to a tea too! Just not too much, as I’ve heard that can be bad.

Ashmanra, add a little milk to it, and I bet you’d have a cup of faux eggnog.

I have four teas set out to finish ASAP. As soon as those are gone, I might experiment!

Hi! I love tea and trying new ones – it adds a bit of variety to my day! Books, music, TV & movies are my thing… and tea, of course.

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!
