Sipdown! (I think…)

Used my last bag of this today. It’s quite good for a CTC supermarket tea, but I’m not really sure how to rate this compared to the unadulterated teas I’ve logged. (I brew this strong to take milk & sugar, and it’s kind of disgusting at that strength without the additions.) Anyway, it’s a solid breakfast tea, brisk and sturdy. I liked it, but not so much that I’d seek it out specifically.

Bio

I grew up in New Jersey drinking Celestial Seasonings, and now I live in England, where I developed a taste for a good builder’s brew. Sometime in 2012 I bought my first loose teas, and my collection has since spiraled out of control. Still quite a novice, due to not drinking enough tea to keep pace with the amount I keep buying.

Some things I’m pretty sure I do like:
- most florals (jasmine, orange blossom, osmanthus, etc)
- buttery, vegetal greens
- malty blacks (usually with milk & sugar)
- oolongs that aren’t too heavily roasted

All tasting notes use unfiltered hard tap water, unless otherwise specified.

No real method to my numerical ratings yet, but we’ll see what develops.
