So I have been putting off entirely updating my Steepster cupboard, because honestly, I know it’s insane and people will think I’m being buried under tea. I promise, the tea is organized. I will slowly add them all over the next few days. SO don’t be alarmed, even if I know there is ONE serving left, it’s a variety of tea that is going on the Steepster cupboard until it’s a sipdown. Updating the cupboard is so when I’m even remotely thinking of acquiring more tea, I will just take a look at the number and slap myself upside the head. I’m not trying to win the Steepster crazy cupboard award. Of course I appreciate all these teas, but too much is too much. And I need to enjoy the awesome teas that I already have. I guess it’s also a problem when I feel like tea companies will go out of business without purchases. And there are only so many tea drinkers and SO many tea shops. So I feel like I should buy from them and support them once in a while… especially the small companies.

This is a random teabag from an ancient teabox. I love the name. (Oh, I’m NOT putting individual teabags in the Steepster cupboard at least.) This one might be too old to judge, but it wasn’t bad. I’m sure it’s much better fresh. Hints of lemon, lavender and mint and very savory.

After I buy the teas I’ve been meaning to buy for a while from Cameron B, I should say. :D

I don’t even use the Steepster Cupboard for inventory, so if I log a tea with a tasting note, I keep it “in the cupboard” even if I have sipped it down and don’t own it anymore, because I find it impossible to find my past tasting notes from the Tasting Notes tab which has pretty much no sorting options on it, but the Cupboard tab at least has several different sorting options (alphabetical, company, date, rating, etc.) so that I can find my review again easier). That’s why I keep my inventory on a spreadsheet instead, heh. I hope people don’t look at my cupboard number continue to grow with each tasting note I make and automatically assume that is the number of teas I have when my actual count is on the spreadsheet I have linked on my profile…

Oh please, no one here would ever dare judge you for the size of your tea cupboard! ;)

Cameron – Well a cupboard THIS big is ridiculous.
Mastress Alita – I also have a e-mail saved draft that I list all my teas in by type and also list if I have more than one. But a spreadsheet sounds like a much better idea. It’s too late now! haha

Cameron B.

I’m thinking I should start a spreadsheet as well. If nothing else, it would be nice to keep tracking of purchase dates.

@Cameron B. – That is one of the fields I keep track of on my spreadsheet!

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. (Or as evidenced by the great computer hiatus of 2019, something happened to my computer.) :D

Happy sipping!
