85

Additional notes: Sipdown of this one. I kind of wanted to finish it just so I could forget it was INSTEAD of my beloved Peachy Keen blend in the vote or something, if I’m remembering correctly. This one doesn’t hold a candle, IMO. Nothing special about it while Peachy Keen is amazing stuff. I guess I talk about it too much!
Edited to add: And I’m noticing now I rated this blend 85. But NOPE. I guess I love PEACHY KEEN too much!
2020 Sipdowns: 22 (AprTea – Zhang Ping Shui Xian Oolong Tea Fragrant Orchid Grade One + TeaRevv – Golden Turmeric)

Here is a new special earworm that seems fitting for these times… I had given up on anything Weezer since the Green album, BUT this is The Avalanches with River and this song is lovely: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nsjQ3Gblzys

I hope I did not mislead you with anything I said before – but this one wasn’t blended instead of Peachy Keen. Peachy Keen didn’t carry enough votes to get in the box or reblended as part of our reblend month. I’m sorry. This one won – with a sweeping victory – in overall votes across the entire poll – I just didn’t blend it for the holiday box because I didn’t have all the required ingredients at the time I was blending for the box.

I’m sorry if I indicated otherwise. :(

No, that is what I meant, that Raspberry Almond Cookie won over Peachy Keen in the vote. :D

I don’t know… I went to the store on the 18th, now have something going on with my throat, so now I’m freaking out. Despite using hand sanitizer and being a usual germaphobe. My hands are dry from washing them so much. Could be allergies or something. sigh.

But everyone should remember, there are still the normal colds/flus. But jeeze… I have been CAREFUL for a while now.

I hope it turns out OK. I hope everyone is being careful and washing their hands and doing what they can to stay safe and healthy! Please do keep us updated if you learn more, I’ll be thinking of you.

I’m sure it’s nothing, but thank you for your concern. I don’t even think I’ve been sick for decades other than the occasional sore throat.

My icon photo is Richard Mayhew from the graphic novel ‘Neverwhere’ by Neil Gaiman, Mike Carey & Glenn Fabry.

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), 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.) :D

Happy sipping!
