Additional notes: checking if steepster posts this, as it has now been two hours without a new post. I’m catching up on tasting notes from ten days ago! And I hope Steepster isn’t giving Adagio TOO much trouble. I have other tasting notes to post, but I will let others catch up first. :D
Just a quick note to say that this one is much better if I pick out the hibiscus before steeping this. It lets some of the other flavors peek out. I really only needed to pick out five pieces of hibiscus anyway, but that makes such a difference. Not sure if I should raise the rating if I need to pick out hibiscus.

While I’m not sure what normal is around here, since I’m very new, things do seem to be doing much better today, so I’m excited!

Anyway, can’t wait to start figuring out which ingredients I like and dislike and what they look like dried so I might be able to alter certain teas I’m less fond of by removing ingredients. Totally sounds like something I’d do. :)

I can see your note, so I assume (hope?) Steepster is back to normal.

MandyJS – the last ten days were NOT normal in the eleven years I’ve been on Steepster. Welcome to Steepster!

Welcome to Steepster Mandy!

I have been on sporadically lately, so I missed the entire “freeze” but I’ve been trying to come back. Hopefully, things return/stay normal. Wouldn’t want to scare you away right off the bat!

MandyJS

Thank you :D Nope I wasn’t scared away, I just kept quietly posting my notes on here hoping they would eventually show up haha. Seems my patience paid off!

Hi! I love tea and trying new ones – it adds a bit of variety to my day! Books, music, TV & movies are my thing… and tea, of course.

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

Happy sipping!
