’Here’s Hoping’ traveling teabox Round #2 // Tea #30
Maybe this would help with the mild headache I’ve had for three days. Elderberries remind me of The Walking Dead now… and poor Hershel! It’s tough to tell from the description what should be in this blend, but it looks like mostly lemongrass. There should be green tea here, I think, but I only see like two green tea leaves in my teaspoon. The flavor tastes like something that should be giving allergies, though I’m not sure what that is. It almost tastes like pine or dill and I should be sneezing. But it sure tastes like a cup that should be fighting sicknesses.

I’ve been picking teas for the teabox – I’m using the ‘my highest rating’ function on my Steepster cupboard to make sure I’m adding some good ones.

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. :D

Happy sipping!
