3224 tasting notes

Additional notes:  Always gravitating to this one.  I’m glad I ordered it a while ago.  Because I think it’s caramel cubes sweetening this rather than even more stevia, I think it’s holding up. (Though the caramel cubes could be stevia, I don’t know.)  It’s just a unique blend.  Very sweet and slightly toasty, so the name is accurate.  Kind of like mixing ‘Movie Night’ and ‘Forever Nuts’ together, so YEAH I like this.  How this odd mix of ingredients actually tastes like caramel corn?  Who knows.  I think I remember David’s sent me two silos on accident, so this is a good one to be sent extra of.  I’d be more reassured if it was still available for sale though!  Maybe David’s will revive this blend by the time I actually finish my stash.

Edited to add: oops, my old note pops up when I post this one and it looks like I already compared this blend to Forever Nuts, Movie Night and Sleigh Ride. I’m nothing if not consistent!

Oh yeah I remember one time saying a tea tasted exactly like another tea, then I looked up that other tea to discover that I had given it the exact same numerical rating as the first a year or two before. Sometimes I feel like my rating system is inconsistent, but I felt good about it that day.

Ha sometimes it’s great when past you agrees with present you.

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!
