Mastress Alita’s Sipdown Challenge Friday, March 5th: National Day of Unplugging Tea #2

Another comforting flavor profile for me.  Sweet fruits!   But to be honest, Harney’s Vieux Paris is probably a better choice for a comforting tea.  Maybe one day I’ll have that around. This is a short tea note sooo…  With unplugging/favorite tea day I feel like I should mention some other things that have helped during these crazy times: 
Comedies and especially watching any Marx Bros movies I haven’t seen yet.
Cheez-Its!  I am president of the Cheez-It fanclub, if there is one, and that Covid commercial with that guy eating Cheez-Its in the empty bathtub?  YUP. I get it.  I eat them almost every day.  Also, POPTARTS

edited: and “comedies” also includes The Guild reuniting to online game (check it on Youtube)… they are all a hilarious group of people together.

I’ve been on a Cheez-It craze lately too… it’s my go-to “late night” snack!

My decompression has been putting on crime dramas/mystery television shows and while I do adult coloring books, cup of tea on the side table.

tea-sipper

:D YEAH another in the Cheez-It club!

AJRimmer

Felicia Day seems like the loveliest person. I love everything she does.

Martin Bednář

Cheez-It? I had to search it and looks tasty. But of course, as not produced over here… expensive. 2.49 USD for 3 oz? Nah, I will stay with our snacks.

gmathis

Love the super-toasty Cheez-its..

tea-sipper

AJRimmer – yup I’m a Felicia fan!
gmathis – I always don’t like finding that ONE burnt cheez-it in the box, so I probably don’t like the “super toasty”. ha
Martin – I’m so sorry and sad you don’t have Cheez-its! 2.49 for 3 ounces is much more expensive than it is in the US. :/

Michelle

The problem I have with Cheez-its is the box really doesn’t last that long. And then I buy the family size and it doesn’t last long either. So then I stop buying Cheez-its until I forget how fast I eat them again. And then I’ll buy a box. repeat.

Mastress Alita

We need a Bag of Holding, filled with Cheez-Its, clearly.

Martin Bednář

tea-sipper: I bet we have another snacks that would be crazy expensive in the US :)

tea-sipper

haha Michelle & M A. and you’re right, Martin!

ashmanra

I do not like Cheez-Its yet still my kitchen cabinet is full of them because middle daughter stocks up every time they go BOGO.

Kittenna

Are Cheez-Its really that good?! I swear I tried them once and was unimpressed. Oh – I just googled and discovered that I barely scratched the surface and that is probably the reason. I have only ever had originals, I’m pretty sure.

White Antlers

I never got the appeal of Cheez-its-but then I am a Pringles addict, so therefore cannot judge anyone else. LOL!

tea-sipper

Oh no, I got everyone thinking Cheez-its! haha. White Antlers – there is still room for the Pringles for me! Pringles is about the only potato chip I will eat.

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!

I’m always in search of: Hattialli, Qu Hao black, Jin Jun Mei, teas using marshmallow root.

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… I have a dumb phone so can’t access internet on that. As of 12/20/21 my wifi might start getting unreliable.)

Happy sipping!
