A nicely balanced tea. Neither too fruity, nor too bland. It is hard for me to describe black currant but it makes me feel nostalgic and is paired well with the Chinese black base.

Flavors: Berry, Black Currant

205 °F / 96 °C 5 MIN, 0 SEC 8 OZ / 236 ML

Diamond Jubilee by Harney & Sons

I was pleasantly surprised by the delightfully light and tart citrus of Diamond Jubilee. I generally prefer flavored teas with a strong base, but in this instance the mild black base works very well with the bergamot and grapefruit essence. The citrus notes linger as a crisp aftertaste and I can only imagine this would be even better served as iced tea.

Flavors: Bergamot, Citrusy, Grapefruit, Tart

205 °F / 96 °C 5 MIN, 0 SEC 8 OZ / 236 ML

Earl Grey Imperial by Harney & Sons

I’ve always had a soft spot for Earl Grey’s, so it seems fitting an Earl Grey would be my first tasting note on Steepster. I purchased this tea with high expectations but was disappointed with the rather weak flavor. The base is pleasing enough but somewhat bland, perhaps due to the addition of oolong. As for the bergamot, it is too dainty for my preference, though it does leave a pleasant aftertaste. The leaves have a nice aroma, and I give them points for the cute tin, but I won’t purchase this particular Earl Grey again.

Flavors: Bergamot, Citrusy

205 °F / 96 °C 5 MIN, 0 SEC 8 OZ / 236 ML

Happy 2021 (and yet again, I am still not dead)

Good riddance 2020. It is an extreme understatement to say that 2020 did not work out as intended. I had big dreams and a multitude of creative endeavors to undertake, but alas, all I could do was tread water.

So, good fucking riddance to all the bullshit of 2020!

For 2021 I am making a slight career change to focus more on creative projects and sharpening my technical skills. Also on the list: a shop to sell my art, jewelry, and excess mineral specimens.

Unfortunately, my health is still questionable. I’ve been diagnosed with inflammatory arthritis and I am ANA positive. This year we will begin the process all over again of trying to pinpoint exactly which autoimmune disease(s) I have. My rheumatologist has placed me on Methotrexate and we will see if that is effective when I return to her in March.

Time to get to work on all the good things I have planned!
