THANK YOU StarFevre! I received a little of this one in the mail, even after the tea cabinet clean. As someone with all THREE boxes of Monster cereal in my possession right now, you know I love this tea (I was able to have a half ounce size before so here is another half ounce for me to savor!) Even though this is an older blend, there is still plenty of flavor. In my heaping teaspoon there were two big strawberry pieces and plenty of marshmallow root. Definitely imparting some flavor there. I also like how this one actually has some of that background oaty flavor that actual cereal has, especially behind all the sugary goodness of Frankenberry. I’d say this was definitely one of Frank’s more accurate blends, even if this is an old blend! I’m uping the rating from an 83. That’s why I was extremely happy that StarFevre was able to send some along.
Also, is anyone else a Supernatural fan? I’m still loving this show even though I only began watching around season five. I mention it now because I just watched the episode ’Devil’s Bargain’ and was very happy to see one of my favorite familiar faces! I’ve always wanted them to return to the show and hopefully it isn’t just an episode. I won’t spoil who it is though. They’ve actually brought back a few, which is fun. I could watch this show forever.

I’m in the UK and we don’t have the new series of Supernatural yet, but I just went on IMDb to see who you were talking about and I am so excited for that!! One of my favourite characters too, and I’ve been hoping for a return for a while now! :D

Oh I’m sorry you have to wait! I’m hoping they keep the character I won’t mention for at least a few episodes but I know that usually doesn’t happen.

Hi! I love tea and trying new ones – it adds a bit of variety to my day! Books, music, TV & movies are my thing… and tea, of course.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

I’m always in search of: Hattialli, Qu Hao black, Jin Jun Mei, teas using marshmallow root.

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), turmeric, bee pollen, charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. (Or as evidenced by the great computer hiatus of 2019, something happened to my computer… I have a dumb phone so can’t access internet on that. As of 12/20/21 my wifi might start getting unreliable.)

Happy sipping!
