ScottTeaMan

this looks like another Fab green.

ScottTeaMan

Do you like this one better than the Mei Li Amy?? Charles???

ScottTeaMan

’Cause I thought the Mei Li rocked, so why does this one get a higher score? How is it better? Or, maybe not better….special?

TeaBrat

Scott, the Mei Li was good but I found it too smoky – I think that is just a matter of personal taste. This one is very sweet and floral.

ScottTeaMan

I thought maybe if you lowered the temp 10*, but I’m not sure it would have made that much diff with the smokiness. Sweet & floral…..Now I CAN’T order from every tea company. I’ll have to prioritize my 2012 tea selections!

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
