2473 tasting notes

Tea for the morning here. I read over some of the previous tasting notes and a few people seemed to think this tea was really boring but I like mine. It’s good when you’re in the mood for something gentle and sweet, I like the cocoa flavors and the non-astringent quality of this. This is a really nice everyday tea for me personally…. see previous notes

I definitely like this one, but it is kind of similar to Queen Catherine. The Queen wins. ;)

TeaBrat

I’ve had Queen Catherine a few times but it is not one of my favorites. Different strokes for different folks, I guess. :)

Scott B

Is Congou another name for Keemun? Or are they different types of tea?

TeaBrat

Scott – I don’t think they are the same but I’m no expert on chinese tea by far…

I think Congou means the same as Gongfu, masterfully made.

ScottTeaMan

Scott-they are diffrerent teas with different qualities.

Amy-I like this tea too. I have the Panyang Congou Selecy from Upton-very goo, but I can’t find it! :-// ‘Too much tea on my hands….too much tea on my ……………………….’

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
