I’m still a bit sick. Stupid cold. Idk.
But thankfully I can taste this tea and it tastes great. I love it so much. I should have stocked up on it more before the end. :O Oh well. I’ll enjoy every steep.


I’m sick too. sad fist bump

Saddest fist bump. :P
And thanks! :D

drank Mystery Oolong by Unknown
1779 tasting notes

Well, someone added this into the system, so I’m going to use it.

It’s a mystery oolong, and it’s great. I’m super sick right now so I’m barely drinking any tea at all, but for some reason the idea of this seemed really soothing. It’s a nice green oolong, with just a little bit of roastiness. I can barely swallow it down because I’m so pathetic, but it’s lasted me 2 hours and it’s still great cold.


Feel better soon!


aww, hope you feel better soon!


oh noes! :( hope you feel better soon!


i’m so glad you have mystery oolong to help you out – and i do hope you feel better.


Feel better soon! I recommend tea with LOTS of honey when sick. :)


Thanks guys! I gotta force myself to drink instead of being tired and cold and unwilling to move when I have tea a foot away from me. :P (so pathetic!)

Ok, so I didn’t like this tea when I had it before, but it was actually pretty great today and yesterday. Maybe it’s because I have a sore throat and the licorice is soothing? Either way, I’m enjoying every drop.

And that puts me down at 163, until my Verdant order bumps me back up!

So I’ve been off all week and my sleep schedule is messed up bc I’ve been staying up later and later watching Goong (Princess Hours) and playing Fantasy Life on my 3DS and basically the point is that I am drinking Second Breakfast while I wait for actual breakfast and it’s 2:45. :P

I hope I’m not working tomorrow bc it will be pretty much impossible to get to sleep around midnight. :P

This tea is really good. I was a little concerned about drinking breakfast tea on an empty stomach but it’s not THAT strong. It’s very malty, a little sweet, and a little heavy like warm bread.

This tea is totally hobbit-worthy. Thanks Sil!


I’ve had the same week. It was reading week and my friend and I did not study at all, and instead stayed up for all the hours playing games and such – all week. Also, this tea sounds tasty. :)


It’s a pretty good week, eh? :D

ohfancythat (whatshesaid)

Who gets up with the kiddo in the early morning?!


She sleeps in until noon! :O (But then she’s up until 2AM. Haha. We’re a bit unorthodox I guess bc my husband is home with her and they run on their own schedule)

Sipdown! My cupboard went up 12, and down 1, so that’s progress. :P 166

This is a really nice creamy fruity blend. It reminds me a little of the Nina’s teas – but I can’t identify the fruit? And the Vanilla is good, but it seemed to disappear mid-cup? :O Odd, but still good. Thanks Sil!


woot! i’m under you! kinda lol

Thank you to Sil and Dinosara for letting me have a cup of this!

I steeped it western style and I am really enjoying it. It’s dark and earthy but much sweeter than I would have expected. I’ll try to steep it a few more times, but so far this is a definite winner!

Sipdown! 154

Thanks to Dinosara and Sil for letting me get my hands on a bit of this puer. I’ve been drinking it all evening in my little pot. I’ve been pouring multiple steeps into an 8 oz cups so that might be negating all the benefits of gongfu steeping, but it’s fun to try things out.

This one is nice and smooth and very earthy. There’s a bit of sweetness to it,and maybe something like raisin? I’ve had 14 oz of it so far and I might just keep up with it for the rest of the night!



haha awesome. glad you’re going to get a chance to try lots of various puerhs


Woo! I really want to be able to appreciate them! Also, I bought 100g of Verdant’s 2006 Longyuan Hao Shu Tuo so….. I hope I love it? /0\


Right? I need to change my paypal password and hide my Visa. :P (I’m sure I’ll like it. I have to)


i have some of that one…so i’ll try to get around to trying it and see what i think heh


And if you want more, I can break some off. :P

This was a cup that Sil sent over for me to try. I couldn’t tell you if it was the OLD Version or the NEW Version, so I’m just not going to bother rating it, but it’s a good cup. It reminds me a little of Laoshan Black! :O

Thank you Sil! Sipdown:155


old version :)


LOL. Good thing I didn’t rate it. I guess I could delete this and move it to the old version but…. meh? I wasn’t super descriptive.

drank Swampwater by DAVIDsTEA

156 – look at all those sipdowns. :)

Thank you VariaTea for giving me a sample of this. I’d heard a lot about it, but for some reason, never picked any up. I didn’t realize it was green rooibos! It gets lots of points for that. I can taste the guava and the passionfruit, but it’s not as sweet as I expected. I suspect it would taste even better iced, so I might grab a little more in the spring!

Thanks again! :D


It was only back for Halloween :(


Aww. Booooo.Good to know. Guess I’ll jump on it next year.

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)
