Yesterday I just happened to drink three different teas from TheLastDodo that I received a while ago.  This is a special one I haven’t written a note for yet.  Earlier on this was STRONG.  At times almost seemingly unnaturally strong for what should be a wild/organic tea. Yowzas, but it seems to be taming down at this point.  I’ve enjoyed a few of these over the years though I can never notice the sage.  It’s just EXTREMELY mint.  Mint mint mint so not much to say. But it was time to say something! I’m intrigued that it’s wild.  And for a wild organic tea, this is holding up in freshness very very well.  Always good for the headaches.  The second cup has almost a creamier element to it, which is unexpected.
Steep #1 // 1 teabag // 16 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // many minute steep
2020 Sipdowns: 38 (one of Teavivre’s – Nonpareil Yunnan Dian Hong Ancient Wild Tree Black + Anne’s 52Teas – Blackberries & Cream Shou Mei  + Frank’s 52Teas -Lemon Meringue Chai (one pouch left!)

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!
