Hi Steepster friends!
I hope the site is back up and acting functional…

Today has been a bit of a waste for me. I went to the dentist this morning and then went around to a bunch of different shops trying to find a teapot I liked and wouldn’t break. I went to Whole Foods, David’s and Lupicia. I saw a lot of glass teapots but I have broken those and even the ceramic ones!! I finally ended up getting the IngenuiTEA at Crate and Barrel (made by Adagio). It’s plastic so I can only hope I don’t break it!!

Anyway I got this tea at Whole Foods while I was there. It’s one I’ve had before. I don’t think it’s the best shu in the world but the ginger is a good addition and I remember this is a good one to keep on hand in case of a stomach ache. When I got home I brewed it up in the IngenuiTEA, which is great so far. I can put a coffee mug underneath of it and get a whole mug of tea. It’s nice!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
