Tea of the Week for January 23, 2017!

Why should limes get all the coconuts?

I took lemons and coconuts and mixed them into a single garden Zomba Steamed green tea from the Satemwa estate in Malawi. I like the way the coconut cuts through the sour, bitter bite of the lemon – leaving just the softer, sweeter side to the sunny citrus fruit. Mere hints of the tartness of lemon emerge and weave their way in and out of the sip – never in a pucker-y way – instead serving as a hint of brightness to this cup.

The coconut is definitely the stronger of the two flavors here – and that’s what I was going for because lemon can be very dominating! I wanted a strong coconut presence and a soft hint of lemon and that’s what I feel I’ve achieved here.

This cuppa is like a bright, warm hint of sunshine in the middle of this cold winter! A very welcome taste!

ingredients: fair trade green tea, organic lemons, organic unsweetened coconut and organic natural flavors

Hello. It’s me. Mrs. No Green Tea, thank you very much. But I gotta say, this one is really good. Really, really good. Could it be one of my top two favorite green teas? I think maybe so! Not sure if that says much, since I don’t normally like them. But I’m actually happy to drink this one. I’m enjoying it! The lemon flavor is light and not tart like I might have expected from a lemon tea. I don’t know that I can taste the coconut, but I do think it gives a creamy mouthfeel to the body of the tea. Or maybe I’m making that up. :D

Jumping into the news of the day – I just spewed all of my emotions over in the comment section of ashmanra’s latest post. This takeover by Adagio has me more emotional than I expected. I guess I knew that Steepster wouldn’t last forever, but I guess I didn’t ever expect things to really change. I want to be hopeful that things will change for the better, that they’ll fix the bugs, that maybe SkySamurai will actually be able to post something in the near future. But I’m also worried. I love it here and I don’t want to see it turn into something impersonal. I don’t want this to become a place where only Adagio reviews are welcome and all my tea friends slowly drop away. I’m probably overreacting. Sure, I guess it’s just tea, but the community here is something I look forward to being a part of every time I have a cup. I love reading about your days and your favorite teas. TTBs and swaps are my new favorite hobby! Will those still be allowed?? I know it’s not the end of the world, but I’m really feeling all the feels right now. Anyone else? Or do most of you think it might be a positive thing? I’d love to hear some positive thoughts right about now!

Note – Apparently there are many who can’t post to the forums! Hopefully this will be one of the first things they fix. Steepsterites need to actually be able to use Steepster!

Latest statement on discussion board from Michael at Adagio is encouraging:

My Adagio Teas colleagues and I are honored by the opportunity to restore Steepster as the preeminent destination for tea discussion and knowledge, especially at a time when online communities are so important to our social wellbeing. In days to come, we will listen and note your ideas for the improvements that you’d like us to prioritize as we work to make Steepster a welcome place for all.

I think it’s great that they seem to want user input on future changes/improvements (we’ll see what the follow through is on that), but I don’t think that should be the immediate focus – where I would put my initial effort is learning what things they need to leave alone in order to preserve the small, but very loyal and active, collective of people currently using the platform.

tea-sipper

Shae, I understand what you’re thinking. But I guess this could be better than Steepster completely disappearing one day? And hopefully if adagio ever decides to bail, they will also be considerate enough to ask if anyone else wants to take over, as Jason & Mike have.

Shae

ashmanra – This is so encouraging! I’ve read some of Michael’s comments in the discussion post and I’m feeling much better about the whole thing today. They do seem to be taking this seriously and have plans to fix a lot of the bugs and make it better.

Roswell – I also really appreciate that they are asking for user input and that their primary focus seems to be fixing the issues with the site before making any major changes. That sounds like a step in the right direction.

tea-sipper – You are so right. This could have been a complete shutdown. I know I’m acting entitled here when Jason and Mike have been fronting all the costs to keep Steepster up and running for us. I certainly don’t mean to be ungrateful for all they’ve put into this over the years. I think my emotions got the better of me yesterday. I’m feeling much more optimistic today after reading through some of the discussion posts. I’m hopeful this will be a really good thing!

I wanted to try this blend because I really wanted to like DT’s Coco-Lemon Thai but it just didn’t agree with my taste buds. Sadly, I didn’t care for this blend either. I like coconut and lemon as ingredients, but I don’t think the pairing works for me. Sadly, this tea actually made me queasy. I’ll be adding this to my sell/swap box.

Flavors: Coconut, Lemon
