College student. Anthropology and evolutionary biology major with various interests ranging from theatre to medicine to programming.
Relatively new to loose-leaf teas. So far, I seem to be enjoying black teas, pu’er, and oolongs. I’ve had limited experiences with green, white, mate, honeybush, matcha, and rooibos teas/tisanes.
I’m still trying to figure out a rating system to go along with my developing tea tasting skills, so pardon any inconsistencies in my numerical ratings. At the moment, my rating system is as follows:
96-100: This tea is a must-have (or at least, a must-try).
90-95: This tea is amazing. I love it!
80-89: I really like this tea, and I may be inclined to get more of it once I run out.
60-79: While I like this tea, I don’t plan on having it in constant supply in my tea stash.
50-59: I dislike this tea. It’s tolerable enough for me to finish the cup, but I don’t think I’ll be trying it again any time soon.
Below 50: I don’t like it at all. (Ranging from “I avoid it” to “You couldn’t get me to drink it if you paid me”)
