50
drank Lemon Lift by Bigelow
545 tasting notes

Backlogging. 8 days ago. Saturday evening.

The February Backlog: From the 1st to today.

I’ve drank this before already but not logged it. I’m giving it a 50 (nice bagged teas 50-60, drinkable 40-50). It’s fine when it’s still fairly hot, but as it cools, I don’t like it too much. It gets sour/bitter/overspiced tasting. I made it for an easy cup to drink while I was making dinner. I’m pretty sure I steeped it the full two minutes. So maybe a minute and a half or just a minute next time.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 2 min, 0 sec

Profile

Bio

I’m 33 years old, studying pharmacy, and have a surly cat named Bin. I love tea, coffee, beer, wine, and most things food and beverage related. I also love music, movies, reading, writing, and learning new things.

I’ve drank tea all my life but about five to six years ago, my close friend Spautz got into tea and got me more into tea. I drink black teas and tisanes/herbals most. Since receiving a variable temperature kettle from my parents for Xmas this past year, I’ve been drinking more greens, oolongs, and whites. I’m very very new to puerh. That is, I’ve had only one.
