Another tasty sample from SIl! Thanks! :)

Naturally honey flavored oolongs are a favorite of mine. This one smells very promising.
Mmm…yes. Honey dipped apples. Specifically, skin on green apples. Barely toasty. Floral sweet, like lychee. This is like a middle ground between green and dark oolongs. I like.

I think all those black teas I’ve been drinking are ruining my taste buds. The lighter teas I used to enjoy are tasting too light! Ack. How do I retrain my taste buds? :(

I am having the same problem! I used to love the lighter blacks and now I pass them over in favor of the strong ones. I suppose as long as I can find tea I love, it doesn’t matter what variation it is. :)

Sil

Glad you’re enjoying them :)

I’m the same! I’m trying to make an effort to drink at least one green or white tea per day. Also, I’ve noticed that if I drink several steeping of sheng, it seems to reset my taste buds.
This is also why I made a tea inventory on my computer. I printed it out & put a mark next to each tea as I drink it. The idea is I have to either drink or serve every tea on the list before I can start over, LOL, which resulted in me buying more black teas so that I could be sure & start each day with one of them (at least).

Of course, I’ve already cheated a couple of times…

haha terri!

Ms Theresa is exceptional at setting up systems to organize things, parameters, etc. She’s very left brained that way. The problem is little terri talks her into wasting her talents on things like my tea collection, instead of the office, or the sheet music collection, etc…& then we never really follow her ‘systems’ (we have all kinds of them) for very long at a time, & soon they are forgotten.

I think I’ll stop black tea consumption for a while until my taste buds atop being silly.

Sil

oooh not sure i could do that. I don’t love a lot of greens heh, though i prefer them to whites and green oolongs

Mercuryhime

I think we might have opposite tea taste. For me, it’s green oolong, white, green and then black. I had only been drinking so much black lately because I just discovered that I don’t dislike it entirely. I’m going to slow down my experimentation now though.

Sil

haha i could use an opposite tea taster friend! lol I tend to seek out the notes from people who enjoy the things that i don’t typically like to see what i might want to try first.

I think it depends largely on the tea as well because i’ve found a few straight greens and oolongs that i love quite a bit. though not too many. mostly i find they’re sort of take it or leave it..though maybe summer will change that since i only really started down this path starting last august?

Bio

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
