100
drank Dark Tresure tea by Nightingale
93 tasting notes

The weather is grey. I need to recharge, so I took a bag of this out (I only have 5 left).

I am thinking of changing my rating system. Normally I just look at the smileys, check what tea I think is better or worser than the tea I am rating and rate after that.

But what tea would go to 100 points?
An extraordinary one I guess. Like this one.
I can’t pin down why it’s so good. It just is. There is so much going on in the mug. A sour/maltyness that reminds me of coffee, a saltyness that should be disgusting but instead taste pleasant. A certain depth. Someone wrote “They keep saying that this taste like wet stones, but what does wet stones taste like?” To me the taste of wetstone would be like the taste of the air in a sauna. This tea has a note of that.

If I read this: “This tea taste malty, sour and salty with a hint of wetstone”…
Well I wouldn’t buy it. But it taste great!

100 it is.

Bio

Many things can be said about me, but I rather not go into details… Other than the facts that: Yes, I am from Greenland (Yeah, it’s totaly awesome!) and I love my books, cats and tea.

I love all kinds of tea, but must confess a greater love towards the Da Hong Pao and a deep hatred for Ceylon and Pickwick. (Yes, I am aware that Ceylon is area). Sorry, It’s not them, it’s me.
Other than that I love the greens, the whites and the blacks (and all of the things in the middle) evenly.

Rating system – I love the smileyrate here on steepster, so I’ll just follow that. That’s 1 point for the worst tea in the history of man, and 100 point for some of the best tea… note that I usually rate high because I am a optimist and love all things tea.
