So I have always only used the cupboard here on Steepster to list teas that I had a significant amount of, generally greater than one ounce. This was good when I did a whole lot of swapping when I didn’t have a lot of tea, because I could always tell the person that I was requesting a swap with that everything in my cupboard had “swappable” amounts in it. Then I was reading some of Sil’s notes about being under 200 teas, etc, and I wondered. How many teas did I actually have? And wouldn’t it be a better way to keep track of all of them than just stuffing them in a sample drawer? So I went through today and logged every single tea in my office, even if there was only a cup left, plus what I could remember from home (but the majority of my tea is at the office, so there will only be a few add-ons). 227 teas! I was afraid it might be worse.
Well, now it’s 226 because I just sipped down this one. I’ve had it for a long time, and as a white tea it is getting on in age. Still delightfully rosey, though. I do like white tea and roses, though I think I like it even better when there is jasmine in the mix, ala the Tea Spot’s Meditative Mind.
