70
drank Chamomile by Harney & Sons
249 tasting notes

Hmm… Got this as a sample when I ordered Paris and a stump teapot. I never had Chamomile tea before. I don’t know what a good or bad one tastes like… It’s not bad at all but it’s very odd. Kind of like a spicy flower while sipping, then a strange & curious aftertaste. Really strange. I am reluctant to rate it since I have literally zero experience but for the purposes of possibly needing something to help me sleep in the future… It’s known to help with sleeping and supposed to be super calming, I’m going to rate it “70” so I’ll know that it wasn’t disgusting and I could buy it lol.

In other news, Civilization 6 came out with an expansion so I’m spending some time playing it, and I’m still working on getting my cupboard down some without buying too many new teas, hehe. I should be getting my YS package soon (after a 2.5+ month wait, it finally made it to USA. I was unlucky this time around, usually never takes that long.) so I’m looking forward to that. I log my tea in the cupboard when I order it (vs when I receive it). I also put in all my tea-swaps in there. How do you all do it? :)

Flavors: Floral, Spices, Sweet

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 8 min or more 20 OZ / 591 ML

I put mine in the first time I drink them usually, and I don’t add the small amounts like swaps and samples.

Thanks for your response, Ashmanra :)

I label the tea package with the date that I receive it. I don’t do this with swaps.

Thanks, Evol Ving Ness for your response :).

I add the tea to my wishlist and then add it to my cupboard when it arrives. I label all the cakes with what they are, when purchased/received and amount paid for each. Seeing the pricing raise over time is about like watching a bond mature.

Thanks for your response mrmopar :).

btw, I’d put it in the discussions but I keep timing out when I try to post there hehe. It’s nice to see how others log their tea.

Some of it rises better than gold. Buy early and plan….

I don’t use the Steepster cupboard for inventory at all. If I log a tea with a review, I add it to the Steepster cupboard; it has no reflection at all on what I currently own or don’t own. I do all that externally on a spreadsheet, since I can filter that spreadsheet by various variables (date, size, company, ingredients, flavor notes, etc.). I have that spreadsheet linked for public viewing at all times from my Steepster Profile.

Thanks for your response, Mastress Alita. :) I have a detailed file in Evernote but that’s about it (other than steepster cupboard.) I will look at your spreadsheet. That’s awesome.

I was adding teas to my cupboard as I drank them but it wasn’t working well. I’ve been trying to add teas as I receive them. I also have a spreadsheet on google docs that I update.

Kawaii433

Thanks hawkband1 :) I really like the spreadsheet on google docs idea that both you and Mastress Alita brought up. I have a detailed inventory in Evernote but I think google docs would be a much better place to share… Etc. Thanks :D

I’ve got a e-mail draft that I keep updated with my teas, organized by type of tea and then by alphabetical (it’s mostly handy for keeping track of multiple packages of tea, like if I have a sample amount separate from another.)

Kawaii433

Thanks, tea-sipper :) Oh wow, never ever thought of using the email draft for uses like that. Pretty neat and convenient too.

Profile

Bio

Longtime casual tea drinker. In the past, mainly Sencha, Matcha. I’m currently into Oolong & Pu’erh.

Gongfu cha is the main way I prepare my tea (gaiwan or Yixing teapot). I drink all tea… Usually unflavored. I do try some flavored now. Just as long as it doesn’t have any artificial sweetener.

Favorite stores: TeaVivre, What-Cha, Mandala Tea, Yunnan sourcing, White2Tea, Lupicia. (Note: I love the teaware from TeaVivre and Yunnan sourcing.) Good experiences with 52Teas, Harney & Sons, Whispering Pines

Flavors I dislike are artificial flavors, especially artificial sweeteners. Strong lavender, violet, any strong floral-perfumey tea; cantaloupe, ripe papaya, sweet honeydew.

Can handle a little of the following: Rose, licorice, anise, jasmine, mint, spearmint, peppermint, leather.

Favorite flavors: Citrus fruits (especially grapefruit & tangerines), granny smith apple, bananas, guava, mango, tamarind, watermelon, stonefruits, all fruits except cantaloupe, chocolate, caramel, vanilla, milk, cinnamon, creme, bread, nuts, toasted, roasted.

I generally don’t add anything to my teas.

As I explore, my ratings may shift. 90+ generally means I’ll keep it on my shelf.
