339 tasting notes

I steeped it for 4 minutes and use the correct amount of leaves, the correct water temperature but I think this tea is probably not for me.
I am feeling a little alone here as the ratings are so high and I unfortunately didn’t get much of the flavour as I was expecting. The tea base itself was a little bit weak to me.
I’m not going to rate it now and will of course give another try during the next days – this should be something wrong with me tonight.

i really enjoy this tea but i have been on the same side as you with a few teas where everyone seems to love it and i don’t :)

You know, I almost ordered this since it’s been on sale but I had a hunch this wouldn’t have much flavour despite the great reviews. But I hope you’ll be able to coax more flavour out of it next time.

I couldn’t taste much either so don’t feel bad.I think it has the tea type that I have trouble tasting. Not Stacys fault, just a blank spot in my tastebuds.

It’s definitely subtle!

thanks girls, will retry anyway as I always give several chances to a tea, I’ll probably add more dry leaves next time

I think I know how you feel, when so many are raving about something and you go “s’cuse me, but I don’t like it quite so much” feels just a little embarrassing for some reason…
But there’s nothing wrong with beign different from the masses, don’t you agree? How boring things would be otherwise? Thank god there are so many other teas out there just waiting for your seal of approval, so don’t feel bad :-) But I also try many different brews before I officially abandon a tea, you just never know!

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 ?!?!?
