Which new features do you want the most?
I often add 1.25 or 1.5 tsp of tea, but the current settings only allow for integers. For instance, David’s Tea company measures tea by their “perfect teaspoons”, which are actually 1.25 tsp. Please let us add partial tsps to our tasting notes!
I would like to be able to see all my tasting notes for a particular tea, without having to read through everything. It is hard to use the tealog as a tasting journal because I can’t compare notes on the same tea with different steeps easily.
Recommendations based on previous ratings you’ve given teas! I’d love this and use this all the time.
I don’t know if it was asked already, but a way to post tealog entries in gong fu cha format is a really important feature for me (number of infusions, different steeping times, evolution of aroma/taste, size/material of the brewing vessel)
It would be great to be able to see all the teas from a specific merchant/store, so be able to click a merchant and see which have already been filled in on the website. I know personally I have a couple tea shops where most of my teas are from and it would be nice to just scroll through and select teas. I also would like to be able to log how much of a tea I have!
Marketing section on top page ( in Discussion section because it’s the most visited one ) . Seems like many vendors here struggle with biz so need to advertise and in order to get on top page they creating whatever topics which lead to their store at the end. It’s getting bit awkward and humiliating for them in my opinion. It pushes them to advertise by sneaky way even if they are nice honest people, I believe.
My suggestion would be to make something nice sticking out on top page where vendors could post , lets say once a week , to promote their stuff clean fair way. I guess it would reduce those non-sence topics like ..have u heard of…whatever tea? did u try ..whatever tea? ..and so on.
I think Reddit has something like that and it works.
I would love to be able to sort alphabetically by the Company Name on my Wishlist page, so all the teas by a single Company get grouped together. Currently the “Alphabetical” sorting only sorts by the tea name, which I don’t find very useful when all the companies are mixed together on the list.
I’d love to be able to go to another user’s direct tasting note page when combing through their rated teas. I’d also love to be able to skip to a specific page number ex. pg. 50 of 100 pages of rated teas.
Also when looking at reviews for a tea at the top it lists all the flavor notes people have chosen. I’d be nice to sort reviews by clicking on the flavor notes and going directly to those reviews pages that selected them.
I’m also wanting a public tea API and an app. I think these two things are holding Steepster back from a larger audience.
I’m a software engineer who’s trying to work on his skills and land my next gig. Please contact me if you’d like any help with getting some new features built and taken off of this enormous backlog!
