Strong and malty, just what I had in mind from a straight black and now it’s gone.

Sipdown!

Now, I’ve been gone so long that I am not sure where I am in terms of sip downs.
500? 800? 300?

I was monitoring here and on my laptop before it died, so hmmm. Maybe google can help.

Google helped to some extent, but I still don’t have a definite number. And I did find a most unpleasant bunch of people on a tea blog, who may well know their teas, but wow.

Hello Crowkettle! How are YOU?

Haha, I just read that post and it’s hilarious and absolutely chock full of tea snobs who are missing the point. It’s fine to express that a site is useless to you and does not meet your highbrow needs, but some of those commenters in particular cross the line. But then again, this is the internet. Steepster absolutely has its flaws and maybe one day they’ll be fixed, but the community is generally amazing and is the reason I got into drinking more than just DavidsTea & Celestial Seasonings.

Agreed. Here we have a variety, a wide variety, of approaches. There are some who take teas very seriously indeed and others who approach teatime as social time. With very very few exceptions, we are all kind here.

I’ve learned a lot here about tea and also about people. As Dex says, tea people are the best kind of people.

I never saw that blog. I only read up to Jason’s reply but the original poster has some valid, thoughtful points. But so what. I love the mess that steepster is, and really shows that each steep of a tea is different for everyone.

I only came across it because it came up when I was googling my steepster name in hope of tracking down my sipdown totals.

To be honest, I spent more time with the thread than with the post,

Made a little pot of this, with some eggnog and a couple lumps of rock sugar, to sip on Christmas Day while doing what is essentially my only holiday tradition – watching Olive The Other Reindeer. If you haven’t seen that movie, I HIGHLY recommend you do. It’s a children’s movie, of course, but it’s produced by Matt Groening (of the Simpsons/Futurama) and has a lot of voice actors in it from those two TV shows, as well as some killer musical numbers and pretty clever jokes that I definitely missed as a kid but have picked up on as an adult and found really well done/clever. Like, it’s just great…

The tea itself wasn’t anything to scoff at either; I will say that eggnog adds a really bold level of richness/creaminess to whatever it’d added to and this was definitely a tea that was brisk enough to handle that quality really well. However, it also had a strong raisin-y and citrus peel quality, and those two tastes are a little wonky with the custardy, mildly spiced nog. However, it was still a pleasant, full bodied and smooth cup/pot all in all.
