drank Assam Halmari by The Devotea

Sil knows I’m experimenting with unflavoured teas, so she’s been super helpful sending me tons of teas to experiment with. Thank you! :D (219)

This was a nice assam – slightly malty, with a little bit of tobacco – but oh, so smooth. I didn’t even need to add milk or anything to it! I need to drink a few more of my loose samples down, and then it’s time to dive into my Lord Petersham bag!

This was a nice iced tea. The lime and the ginger were amazing. My kid drank a good 6 oz of it in 2 minutes so that’s a good sign. If I ordered from these guys again, I’d snag more!

An adult version of cocoa? Yes please!

I wish I had tried this sooner, but I didin’t realize what it was. It’s delicious! Thank you, Shmiracles! It was nice and chocolately before I added milk. It was creamy and rich.

drank Melon White Tea by Lupicia

Thanks Dexter for sending me a sample of this. I brewed it warm because I’m a sucker for punishment but I’ll ice the last little bit later. This is such a lovely tea. It’s really delicious and juicy.

To be honest though, I can’t remember what the difference is between this and the melon oolong, but with the oolong I can worry less about using hot water. I’m happy I was able to try this though! :D

drank Two Tigers by The Devotea

Oh man, this is so strong! I ended up adding milk to it just so I could sip away at it, and it tastes like smoke, and ash, and dark black tea. I was ready to fall asleep so we’ll see how zippy this makes me!

Then it’s time for Orange is the New Black!

Thanks Sil! 225!!!

drank Japanese Cherry by Art of Tea

Sipdown! (226)
Thank you to 221tea for sending some of this on! I don’t crave green teas enough, but I finally sat down with this and quite enjoyed it. I’m getting cherry notes, and buttery spinach in the green and it’s balanced nice and now it’s gone. :O So, thank you! That’s always a good sign.

Thanks Sil for this one. I wonder if I overleafed it or oversteep it. It’s strong and a little bitter. That doesn’t sound like Martha. Martha is so kickass.

I wish she wasn’t so doe-eyed about the Doctor but I love that she became such a badass and moved on to live her own life instead of being in his shadow…

Glad I got to try this one. The caramel is a nice touch. Not my favourite fandom blend, but… they’re really hard to make good. I g ot something salty in the base too. Or maybe I’m just more attuned to some kind of salt taste because my oolong yesterday was also super salty. :O


Poor Martha. She was definitely underrated for a long time!

:| I was busy working when I drank this and I can’t remember how it was.
Poor Rory. Poor forgettable Rory.

drank Zhen Qu by Butiki Teas

I just finished this cup and and had to come to Steepster to remove it from my cupboard, but for some reason, I stubbornly refuse to talk about it right now., but I’m logging it because I’m on this page anyway… (231)

So, hi guys? It was good.

Yay! This is the first of the Victoria’s teas that I really enjoyed. (232) Thanks VariaTEA It was sweet raspberry and fruit and I fnished the entire cup with dinner before I had a chance to properly log it. But it was good. :)


I haven’t tried this one yet but each time I smell it, it smells good. Glad you finally got one you enjoyed :)

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.


Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a little girl and a devoted bf, two cats, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, fandom!, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

I keep trying to learn languages on Duolingo and failing. I’m currently failing Esperanto. :P

1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
