I made this tea tonight to accompany a stir fry. Both turned out good.

This tea tastes like, shocker, the tea you get in a Chinese restaurant. It’s light and a little bit lemony and has an especially pleasant aroma. I brewed it generously, both in quantity and time, but it is relatively weak and delicate. I prefer teas that have a chance against coffee in a fight, so this won’t be a favorite, but it does taste as advertised and it pairs well with a nommy westernized Chinese meal.

Bio

Here are the things I drink: Tea, water, coffee, beer, whiskey, wine.

I’ve been drinking tea since I was a little girl, but only recently began learning about tea and drinking loose leaf.

I prefer unflavored tea to flavored, tea leaves to tisanes, but I’m not inflexible and will try nearly anything.

I’m still learning, so thank you in advance for your patience and your help.

Also, I had to come up with a way to quantify my ratings because I was being really inconsistent:

100-90: Delicious, must keep in stock.

89-80: Excellent, a definite reorder.

79-70: Good, an occasional reorder.

69-50: Pleasant, but it was a one night stand.

49-30: Not good, but drinkable.

29-20: Bad, but I finished the cup.

19-10: Terrible. Couldn’t finish a cup.

10 and below: Undrinkable, requires mouthwash and counseling.
