96

Additional notes: I’m still in love with this heavenly tea. And it is… aging well. ha. It’s a perfect black tea and just hits all the flavors I love to find in a black tea. Raising the rating from a 91.

Today going over words with Dad for his aphasia he said ‘wheelbarrow’ instead of ‘wagon’ which was reminding me of Mr. Robot. Mostly because the book that goes with Mr. Robot is called red wheelbarrow but in the show there is a wagon (and the restaurant). I’m wondering what these things will mean because everything means something on the show. I love that genius show (and the book!) and really need to catch up. I’m only a couple episodes into the third season. Anyone else a fan? No spoilers!

The title is a reference to a poem called “The Red Wheelbarrow” from the collection “Spring and All” by William Carlos Williams.

Oh yes, I know, but I figured there are many other meanings and connections!

I finished the third season last night after powering through season 2&3. Now I need to watch the first season for the first time. I have a feeling things will make a lot more sense at that point!

HOW can you watch seasons 2-3 before season one? haha. I would never do that to any show… especially with a complicated show like this.

My geeky nerdy computer security hubby enjoys his TV time and watched the first season with me mostly avoiding getting wrapped up in the time sink. I finally caved when he started watching the second season. I managed to watch the movie Memento like this too, walking in on the second half of the movie and having to watch the first half after the movie was over. I’m sure it makes me an obnoxious tv companion, never fully grasping and asking questions, yelling at the characters when they do something stupid. :)

ah, okay. I feel like on this show, tiny little details will have massive meaning five seasons later!

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!

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!
