Mastress Alita’s sipdown challenge Wednesday, December 15th: International Tea Day Tea #1

I don’t know, the world is really getting to me today.  I just really appreciate that Steepster is a group of great people.  I’m wishing all of you all the positive things!!  I went with this tea today because really I just needed a cup of comfort.  Which I guess is the reason I drink tea.  Even with all of the parameters a tea can have, leading to a different cup each time, tea is still something very stable and reliable in this world.    First sip: ah, immediately makes things a little better.  And this was a sipdown of my dear harvest of this EGC.  Seems fitting today. 
2021 sipdowns: 152

Also, I want to share my favorite song of the year.. Unkle – If We Don’t Make It

Ooh, I think I’ve discovered my perfect EG Cream with Camellia Sinensis, but now you’ve intrigued me!

Dustin

Things are rough and exhausting lately! I was barely able to bribe myself out of bed with tea after oversleeping. I need to figure out which cup of comfort I’m in the mood for today!

Courtney, Zen’s is long gone but I will keep CS’s in mind!

Courtney

Well, shoot! But perhaps easier for me haha! I adore the one from CS (I actually drink 1-2 cups daily)!

“The world is really getting to me today” summarizes how I feel exactly. Wishing you all the comforting tea you can enjoy today.

I reply with same wishes back to you tea-sipper. Indeed I feel I am in a group of friends with same hobby and that’s lovely. And getting cup of tea as a cup of comfort, is there other beverage that can do that?

Michelle

Wishing you all the positive things too tea-sipper! You inspired me to brew my own cup of Vanilla comfort tea :)

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!

I’m always in search of: Hattialli, Qu Hao black, Jin Jun Mei, teas using marshmallow root.

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… I have a dumb phone so can’t access internet on that. As of 12/20/21 my wifi might start getting unreliable.)

Happy sipping!
