drank Satsuma Mint by Tealyra
3391 tasting notes

I haven’t written a note for this.  I think I received it as a sample a while ago directly from Tealyra.  It’s a lovely one.  It’s all sweet sweet orange, almost reminding me of some sort of orange sauce you’d eat on chicken or something.  I miss Chinese buffets. We don’t have any in the vicinity here anyway.   There are only hints of mint in the flavor, which is fine with me as I like the sweet orange being the highlight of the cup.  The second steep is also fantastic.  Sadly they don’t have this for sale anymore.  I would have bought more.  That’s the problem with Tealyra… they once kept my favorites in stock but not so much anymore.  But it looks like ‘Tea Desire’ has it in stock as Blood Orange Loves Mint.
Steep #1 // 15 minutes after boiling // 3 minute steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // 10 minute steep
2021 sipdowns: 36 (oldest sample of Adagio – Fujian Baroque)

Ooh, I love satsuma as a fruit and more recently have started to fall for mint tea so this sounds delish! I have added it to my wish list :)

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.

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!
