5 Tasting Notes

1114 tasting notes

It’s chilly outside and I wanted something spicy and comforting, but had a black tea at breakfast, so wasn’t quite ready for another one. In comes this beauty that I had received in my B&B subscription. It has a predominately cinnamon aroma. The flavor is a nice combination of cloves, ginger, and cinnamon, and the green base is nice and mild. The ingredients list chili peppers, but I’m not getting any of the heat I would expect from the chili’s. Overall, a bit more mild than I expected but still an enjoyable, comforting cup.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Clove, Ginger, Green

One tea left in the pouch.

Today it is very clove based. Green tea with cloves. Haven’t noticed any smoky notes; only green tea with ginger/cloves spiciness.

Well, good for this afternoon. Need to finish it as soon as possible. Otherwise it would get very bland and even more boring.

Flavors: Clove, Ginger, Green

By the way, only struggle I have is captcha often. Suggested addon wasn’t working for me and loading is bit slower. But posting tasting notes works like it used to, haven’t tried to post in discussions, but messages started to work. But I am not only member! I hope it will be better for everyone!

White Antlers

Sometimes I can log on, but mostly I cannot. I can’t update my profile or seen new and recent tasting notes of people I am not following. sigh

Mastress Alita

Hey Martin, I used my “fake” account to post your issue to the message boards, and they added the Czech Republic into the Captcha whitelist so hopefully you shouldn’t be getting all the captchas now.

Martin Bednář

Thanks Mastress Alita; I noticed it (thank you e-mail notification, although bit too much of them recently… but I like to see them)

It seems I can post to discussions as well, which is great, but I am deeply saddened that your main profile isn’t working as expected, as well many others (including White Antlers). I would give up posting on discussions for working state as before the migration for everyone.

White Antlers

Glad to see that Martin and Mastress Alita have had their ‘tea powers’ restored. I can no longer post in Discussions, still can’t update my blank profile or read new tasting notes other than those of the few folks I follow. I keep getting the black “someone left the kettle on” page when I try to do anything.

Mastress Alita

Your “blank” profile should get restored eventually, White Antlers. Mine wsa “blank” for well over a week, but the text has been restored now. Some of my friends still have “blank” in theirs. Maybe it can’t be altered until after they restore it.

White Antlers

Thanks, Mastress Alita. The profile doesn’t bother me all that much, as I know who I am and I don’t swap. What I do find frustrating is not being able to see recent tasting notes, other than those of the folks I follow. What can I say? I’m a fixed astrological sign…

Mastress Alita

Huh… I only read the tasting notes of the people on my Following list, so I’m not even sure how (or where) to go about doing that. It takes me so long to catch up my reading just reading the Following list I don’t really need more…

White Antlers

I used to be able type in my browser ‘steepster.com/recent/all’ and I would get to a page that had all the newest tasting notes from everyone, whether I followed them or not. Now when I log in, I am taken right to my Dashboard and from there, if I’m lucky, I can then go to Discussions.

Mastress Alita

Okay, I’ve only ever used the Dashboard myself! I am also getting a broken link at that address, so it isn’t just you.

White Antlers

Thanks, Mastress Alita. I’m an old lady (70) and not tech savvy at all. I still have and use an ancient Motorola flip cell phone. At least I’m not crazy or doing something wrong; it’s Steepster, not me.

Mastress Alita

I don’t even own a cell phone! :-)

White Antlers

Mastress Alita* Good for you! I don’t drive nor do I have a land line in my home, so the little old flip phone is for emergencies. It’s essentially what is now considered a ‘burner’ phone-pay as you go-no plan. I don’t own a television, so I am not in the 21st century by any means.

Mastress Alita

I posted about that “New Tasting Notes” page error in the forums, White Antlers. It took a while to load for me, but I am now able to access https://steepster.com/recent/ . Maybe try it again now and see if it is also fixed for you?

White Antlers

Thanks for posting that, Mastress Alita. I still cannot post anything at all in Discussions so your help is greatly appreciated. Yes, now I can see ALL recent/new tasting notes. That’s tremendous!

Mastress Alita

Martin and I couldn’t post in the forums until just very recently… I am no website/server database expert (I know the most rudimentary of HTML…) but it almost seems to me things are slowly repairing in “blocks” and it might just depend on what pieces are data are where… there might be hope yet you can post in the forums too, down the line, once that “section” of data is addressed. Glad it is working for you again!

White Antlers

Posting in the forums, for me, is on and off. I don’t have a lot to say about tea, other than ‘I drink it,’ but it’s nice to know I CAN say something if I want to, like responding to Shanie O’Mainiac’s (sp?) query about kettle recommendations. I’ll try to call on my weakest virture-patience-and just try to see, every day, what’s fixed and what I’m able to once again do. Thanks again for your kind words and your help.
