89

Dry Leaf: Has a vegetal smell with a milky or creamy component in the background.
Wet Leaf: Gave off more of a light vegetal smell.
Liquor: Stayed consistent with a yellowish color it was bright with good clarity.
Taste: This tea had a vegetal taste while extremely hot but, as the tea cooled there was a floral note that came to the top with a slight milky or creaminess in the background. This taste was fluent with the several steepings I did.
My Score/ Over All Opinion: 89, I did enjoy this tea but, in my humble opinion I would like to see that creaminess/ milkiness be amped up naturally of course and not chemically. But, I can say this tea had a natural taste to it which is a good thing. I also want to add that above description says production may 2011 and my review is on the June 2011 production which may cause slight differences in reviews.

Bio

IF ANY TEA COMPANY WOULD LIKE TO SEND ME SAMPLES OF THEIR TEA I WOULD BE GLAD TO DO A FULL REVIEW ON STEEPSTER FOR YOU AND ON YOUR COMPANY WEBSITE JUST SEND ME A MESSAGE.

I am a simple guy that enjoys making new tea friends and enjoying different teas and tea culture.
My favorite type of teas are green, oolong, pu-erh.
I do have a special love for black (red) tea and chai since they were the teas that started me on my tea adventure. I wish the whole community well.

My Tea Scores
100 points: Perfect experience. Beyond what you would expect from the aroma, the leaf, the liquor, the taste.
96-99 points: Excellent. A tea that will show true greatness in it’s character with at least 2 infusions.
93-95 points: Superior.Teas that achieve high quality in one dimension, and shows it’s high quality character and their variety in other dimensions.
90-92 points: High quality. Quality leaves, liquor hold to it’s true profile, the teas character can hold it’s flavor for 2 infusions.
85-89 points: Good. Above average tea that is lacking something to make them high quality.
80-84 points: Average. Nothing special
79 and lower points: Low quality. Not worth buying and a tea you would never remember drinking unless it tasted that bad.
