Consider this teabag is from an ancient teabox.  I was intrigued – a savory tea.  Numi has (or had) a line of six weird savory teas. This one wouldn’t have been the one I most wanted to try… As I was debating what tea to have, I noticed that there were staple holes in the wrapping, which means the wrapper had been partially opened for all these years.  I’m not sure if this is why this tea now tastes like a compost pile?  Or if it would have tasted like that anyway?  The black tea didn’t taste like decaf, but it didn’t taste like a robust black tea either – more like an empty palate base for this weird flavor.  Both steeps tasted the same. Of course, I knew when I took it from the teabox that I would regret that it would take me forever to try such a unique tea.  But probably, if I want soup, I’ll just eat soup. I feel like I want to live on tomato soup all winter but I can not stand normal tomatoes. So that’s weird. I get all my tomato in soup and KETCHUP.

I like savory sorts of teas to cook my ramen in, because I can’t use the included flavor packets due to MSG being a migraine trigger. However, “beet cabbage” does not exactly inspire me…

Oh dear, a “compost pile” can’t be too delightful to drink.

I actually miss these, there were one or two that I really liked. :|

Mastress Alita – yeah, I can’t imagine there are many beet cabbage fans? haha.
Cameron – I’m sure this was better when fresh. I’m glad you were able to try them!

I’ve heard of beet teas, but beet cabbage doesn’t sound appealing.

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!
