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 ?!?!?
