183 tasting notes

Just finished off another sample. Apparently most of the teas taking up space in my cupboard had just one steeping left. This project might be easier than I thought.

I’ve had a very love/hate relationship with this tea. It seems to have two distinctly different personalities (depending on how much attention I put into steeping it, of course.) I brewed it a little strong today, because there would have been no point in keeping the leftover… and it tastes quite nice that way.

Changing the rating to an ‘official’ 75. I likely won’t buy any more, so this is my final say. :)

I’m a habitually high-rater. Maybe I’m easily-impressed.

90-100 – A – I love these teas, and want to keep them in rotation.

80-89 – B – These teas are good, and I would never turn them down.

70-79 – C – These teas are sort of middle of the road. Drinkable, but would never be my first choice.

60-69 – D – I don’t like these teas, but they are palatable under certain conditions.

0-59 – E – Do. Not. Want.
