We know you love tea, that’s for sure. And we know your tea has to come from a…place, right? That’s why we’re announcing the all new Steepster Places! Similar to how you rate and review teas, you can now rate and review the many tea rooms, tea cafes, tea shops and restaurants where you enjoy a nice cuppa! Let everyone know exactly how you felt about your experience and pass along some friendly tips.
To view the closest tea places, hop on over to the "Places" tab and you’ll automatically see nearby locations (based on your IP address).
You can browse the list, scan the map, and search for tea places by location (city, state, or zip code) and/or name using the search form above the map. Throw in a few of the many filters to customize your search and find exactly what you want.
Once you find the place you’re looking for, check it out to get more details like ratings, reviews, business hours, contact info, maps, types of tea and food available, pics…the list goes on and on.
Don’t see the place you’re looking for? You can easily add it by clicking the “Add a Place” button.
If you’ve added a rating and/or review, the place will be listed under your Place Ratings, right alongside your Tealog.
Now you can easily collect and share your thoughts on your favorite (and not so favorite) tea joints around the World - all of your tea drinking activities connected to your Steepster tea-universe.
We’ve tried our best to make sure most of the tea places you go to are already listed on Steepster (there’s over 2000, mostly US-based), but that’s only part of it. We’re asking for your help to fill in the rest of the picture! That’s why everyone can edit places (just like how you can edit teas) and add any relevant information we may have missed.
We’ve also changed around the main navigation to organize the larger features on Steepster and group the personalized ones. Poke around a little to see what’s what.
We hope you have fun discussing your favorite tea places, adding info to new ones and playing around with another way to make tea and Steepster a regular part of your day. As always, feel free to send us any thoughts about the new features; we’d love to hear what you think! And remember…
"You’re off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your [tea] mountain is waiting. So…get on your way!"
