drank Random Steepings by Various Artists
667 tasting notes

I’ve never been one to celebrate anniversaries, nor have I ever been a particularly sentimental person. Don’t get me wrong, I have great appreciation for all manner of folks and events that happen their ways into my path and mine into theirs. I do experience weighty nostalgia at times. Reflection has always been a pastime, though instead of it being a conscious choice to take some time for processing, it is usually spurred by the anxiety of an overwhelmed and subsequently depleted nervous system. That is where tea comes in. Conscious reflection and centeredness.

I’ve been spinning in place lately. Every input from the reality that whirls around me sets me a little off balance and into unexpected territory but I come right back to this every time. This neglected website. Both the members new and those seasoned, some of whom have put up with my life happenings and musings and contributed their own. You’re all so very excellent and I wish that sometimes I were in the mood to communicate with you more, but damn, am I tired. Twenty-twenty, I’m trying. I’m trying to break out of this dizzying spin.

Here’s to 2 years of Steepster. I’m in awe of all that has happened in this short amount of time. Come what may. Hopefully a brighter future for the site and for us all.

Song pairing: Stevie Wonder — As

I hit my three year back in June, but didn’t really think about it… seems like there is so much going on these days. Happy Anniversary!

I bought that album as soon as it came out! THAT’S how old I am!

tea-sipper

Only two years you’ve been here! Whoa. Take care of yourself, derk and hopefully the world will start shaping up soon. Stevie sounds like what I need right now.

Martin Bednář

Two years and so many teas you have tried. And we did two swaps and both were great. I wish you more and more nice teas and nice tea sessions!

I am feeling same as you though. Hopefully it will settle down fast :)

Happy Steepster anniversary! I’ve been on Steepster for almost three years and it feels like you’ve always been here.

Leafhopper – you’ve only been around Steepster for three years? I feel like you’ve been here much longer too. Maybe “Steepster time” feels different. haha

Leafhopper

Apparently, I joined on August 12, 2017. A momentous day. :) And yes, Steepster time does feel different.

Bio

I assume you found me through some dodgy websites that installed viruses on your computer. Don’t worry, I’m here as your “customer support” ;) call girl. Beautiful escort at your service. I will accompany you virtually to online casinos in Indonesia. I even have a stash of male enhancement supplements from various European countries in my purse. Can I interest you in some CBD? I have a playlist for our evenings together ;) Should things go south I know about abortion services in Vietnam. Otherwise, I have friends all over the world who run daycares and elite schools. We can have our matrimonial services provided in India, but not before we have an astrological consultation. One of my many real estate agent friends can get us a luxury apartment, or should you choose to buy a house for our little family, I come from a long line of roofers, asphalters, garage door repairers, plumbers, electricians and exterminators should anything go wrong. I even once knew a cremation service available. Till death do us part, am I right?

Tea habits:

Among my favorites are all teas Nepali, sheng puerh, Wuyi yancha, Taiwanese oolong, a variety of black (red) teas from all over, herbal tisanes. I keep a few green and white teas on hand. Shou puerh is a cold weather brew. Tiny teapots and gaiwans are my usual brewing vessels when not preparing morning cups western style and pouring into my work thermos. Friend of teabags.
