94

So I managed to brew it correctly for my palate !
2 minutes only are really enough.

I can now appreciate both malt and caramel and behind a little chocolate hint

I amended my rating.

First time in my life I have to steep a blend such a little time !

This tea can really bear several steeps without any problem, so quite economical finally :)

Yay, glad you cracked it! This one is a spoiled tea which demands to be treated just the way it wants and just so!

First, please forgive me for my English and all the grammatical mistakes you’ll find in my posts.
As English isn’t my mother tongue it sometimes makes things more difficult to express cleverly and accurately what I feel.

I was mainly in black flavoured teas, green as well if not bitter.
I’m now drinking much straight teas because my palate is now developed enough to appreciate them .

My favourite brands are : Mariage Frères,Theodor,Butiki Teas,Dammann Frères, Betjeman & Barton.
My ratings are as follow :

100 to 95 : my darlings; always in my cupboard

94 to 90 : Excellent tea, often in my cupboard

89 to 80 : very good tea, a pleasure to drink it

79 to 70: not bad even nice, why not having it sometimes, but well, not so urgent !

69 to 50 : Meh, deceptive or just not for me – but has some qualities

49 to 30 : I just don’t appreciate it

Under 30 : is this tea ?!?!?
