Thanks so much for sending this, Tree Gal! I’m happy to try any tea… however this is…
turmeric…. and turmeric…. and turmeric….
with hardly notes of anything else that happens to be in the blend. The green tea/ black tea combo is also a bit odd, as I had to steep it cool for the green tea, so how much did the black tea really appear in the mug? Not sure, as all I could taste was TURMERIC. The color of the brew was also the color of TURMERIC. So I’ve found I’m just not a fan of turmeric… it’s just bitter and blah to me, therefore not a fan of this blend. Again, happy to try it though, even just to see that I don’t like turmeric.

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!
