why does steepster go wonky and dead around 3p everyday? i mean, i’m not REALLY complaining, i’m just kinda curious.

i have a Hario gongfu teapot that i’ve really wanted to use so i decided to try it now even though this tea isn’t really gongfu material i don’t think. maybe i’ll get one of those little over the cup strainers and then use the gongfu whenever i want. :)
i smelled the tea, and was like ‘this seems nice, why didn’t i buy more of this one?‘…aaaaand then i tasted it. and it’s a hibiscus tea. and we all know the blah blah about hibiscus teas. so i’ll just spare us all and say it’s pretty. and nice enough. and i won’t buy more. and i’ll give my sister the rest of my sample. with love xox


I noticed a lot of people were linking to a forum post around then, I don’t know if it caused it today or not but both days it’s been at the absolute worst time…when I am trying to get addresses to send people tea.


random update note. I’m less complainey in my older age! and I totally do like this tea now and would never write such a grumpy note about it if you asked me now. sweet and savory. a unique scent that’s a really nice change.

the green smells like grass to me. or maybe old spinach. or seaweed. something about the way the pepper mixes with the green i think? or maybe it’s the safflower? i don’t think i’ve had much safflower.
this tea just does not want to be my friend.
i know,… it’s not the tea, it’s me.

exactly what i need right now.
basically i’m having tea for lunch cuz i had a big breakfast and i’ll have a big dinner.
brought a handful of davids ‘24 days of tea’ with me to try.
my very last box from them arrived last night. now i have the winter tree teapot and bubble mugs, as well as two gongfu teapots and bubble mugs. i’m ready for a tea party! as soon as my communal house finishes renovating our kitchen i’m gonna put all my tea and accessories in the cupboards and take pictures.

good morning!
I WAS gonna save this to drink with my sister. but I have bad impulse control and wasn’t thinking when I packed it for my trip. black tea black tea black tea!
it’s a nice tea. Not sure it’s my favorite or anything, but it’s nice. Maybe best at night after dinner like as a cocktail alternative. It tastes … adult.

appropriately drinking this tea as i read this http://archiveofourown.org/works/324584?view_full_work=true
the scent of this tea is very strange to me, sweet but ‘off’. and it intrigues me over and over.
i think i like it?
i’ll have to get back to you on that.


I completely agree with you. The scent is sweet but off.

my roommate is having a baby in the next room.

her contractions are about 5 min apart.

How exciting!!!


It’s a girl! born at 5:35 this morning.
(Not much sleep is a great excuse for all day tea)


Indeed! Baby fingers and toes are the most beautiful things, aren’t they? Welcome to the little one!
