This one is from Annie! Thanks so much for sharing it! I definitely wanted to try it. I love the idea of a raspberry lemon cheesecake. The bright raspberries look amazing in the blend and I made sure to get a lemon wedge in that cup. I really tried to steep the first steep short, so I could maximize the cheesecake flavor. However, there wasn’t any resulting cheesecake flavor at all (even though this was a 15gram original pouch and hardly old tea yet). The lemon is the strongest flavor here, with only hints of raspberry. The green tea is refreshing here, but then takes over in the second steep. Maybe I should have went with even shorter steeps. I’m also wondering what these flavors would have tasted like on a white tea base… with tons more cheesecake flavor.
It has been since early January since I’ve made any tea purchases, so two months (Lupicia). That means I’m holding to my word so far this year with less tea purchases. I feel bad for not supporting the tea shops though! But I will stay strong.
Steep #1 // 1 heaping teaspoon for a full mug // 32 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
Steep #2 // 30 minutes after boiling // 2-3 minute steep

Is the tasting note dashboard stuck again? No new notes for six hours that I’m seeing.

Wait, and this note had other comments before.

Maybe nobody wrote notes? I just wrote a note and it’s appearing, but it could just be for me.

Good for you for not purchasing! I’m trying to be strong, too – it’s so hard, especially being on Steepster!

Oh WAIT. I was remembering Anne replying, but that was to the Blueberrie-zzz today. So yeah, no comments on this tea today. Whoops.

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!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), 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. :D

Happy sipping!
