I have not been on Steepster in awhile!
While I’ve been drinking tea, I just haven’t had the time to log it here. I miss reading what everyone is drinking!
Had to log this, though, because this tea is one fantastical creation… I instantly feel like I’m Tom Waits sitting with Iggy Pop in a booth at a diner, all in black and white… and it’s so comforting in such a strange way. lol
Really, this tea!
I’m not a smoker, because lung issues run in my family, but I have enjoyed cigarettes and coffee in the past…. and it’s a taste that just sticks with you forever afterwards, filed away in the ‘nostalgic tastes and smells’ cabinet of the mind.
I really do wish this was one that could be ordered again, basically because there is nothing like it out there. nothing. (and, the aftertaste is spot on. SPOT ON!)
Thanks for making this one Stacy. It’s quite special. :)


Nice to see you back!

Oh, tea….
you’ve taken over my life, but I’m ok with that.

I’m pretty new to the tea scene, only drinking tea bags most of my life, but my friend ifjuly really got me into it (that sounds bad…). Butiki, Harney, and Verdant seem to be my ‘go to’ places to order from, but I LOVE trying new teas and companies. The variety is partly why I love tea so much…you can’t possibly get sick of it.
Well, that, and the transporting aroma of each cup…. I love that. It’s why I love wine, and tea does it just was well.

Really want to learn about different tea vendors out there, and about tea in general… it’s all so interesting to me.
I’m really excited to be part of this community and learn from all of you.

I don’t usually sweeten or add milk to my teas, so my notes are based on that….also, the rating system kind of throws me—I’ve always been horrible with giving number ratings to things, so don’t take those as set in stone (Honestly, I usually don’t even use the numbers…).

Everything in my cupboard has at least one serving left in it…I try to keep it updated. :) (I actually just added all my sample sizes to my cupboard, so MOST of the tea in my cupboard is of that ‘sample’ size…)

random info: music and art are pretty important in my life… i also thoroughly enjoy nerdy things like video games, anime, knitting, Doctor Who (the 10th is my favourite…), A Song of Ice and Fire, and random cartoons and such…. and i love, love, love to read. :)

I’m married to my best friend (I’ve known him since I was 15….we were totally going to be in a band together. It was going to be HUGE…), and we’ve got three kiddos. They’re pretty neat, too, even if they try to put sugar in my Verdant tea when they drink it….
