Additional notes: I’m having this one again. I think it’s still my favorite chai though I was wondering why it wasn’t as strong, then I thought I had previously used two teaspoons. Looking at the tasting note says I used 1 3/4 teaspoons. I’m still amazed at the big cinnamon pieces. I love that it has both longer leaves and CTC leaves. Also, I think I noticed some pieces of rock sugar this time around, though it doesn’t taste much sweeter. Maybe it makes it perfect while using 1 3/4 tsps. I’m sad I’m still the only one with a tasting note for this one. All of the NecessiTeas blends I’ve tried have been delicious. I wish they sold their teas in smaller amounts than three ounces. Steepsterers could at least be splitting orders!

Heck yeah! I’d be down for sharing this with someone, for sure!

Well, my tea monies will sadly be going elsewhere for a while, but maybe someday! And I’m trying to see where NecessiTeas source is. It seems they have some of the same teas as Fusion Teas & Two Tea Guys (and both of them have cheaper prices.) But neither of those two have the awesome blends like Blueberry Cheesecake.

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!

I’m always in search of: Hattialli, Qu Hao black, Jin Jun Mei, teas using marshmallow root.

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… I have a dumb phone so can’t access internet on that. As of 12/20/21 my wifi might start getting unreliable.)

Happy sipping!
