drank Keemun Queen's Hope by Lupicia
2310 tasting notes

San Francisco weather: the end of June, it will be 60 degrees and foggy all day. Ick.

O.K., it’s a sipdown. Finishing off this tea from Lupicia, which is a very mild blend of Keemun black teas. I’m not really a Keemun person at all, but this is pretty good for a murky day like today, better with some soymilk. See previous notes if interested.

I’ll trade you 95 and sunny for 60 and foggy anytime.

Bonnie

97 and smoky trumps sunny and foggy (let’s see who comes through the saloon door next)

I’m not complaining too much, I just find it difficult to get out of bed. :-/

The sort of weather I’m craving is the direct opposite of the weather we’re having.

Bonnie, be careful or you’ll be the proud owner of 136 varieties of Lapsang Souchong ;)

Sunday, I watched the US Open at the Olympic in SF…….it was neat watching all the fog [but I don’t have to deal with it on a regular basis].

Uh oh, this tea was not a winner for my palate. Glad you enjoyed it though!

Profile

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
