drank Rose Tieguanyin by Custom
2031 tasting notes

Good news, guys, I got myself some Claritin (or “Clarityne” as they say here) and I am definitely feeling better. Not perfect, but much better.

This morning I made up the rose version of this tieguanyin, and I threw in some ginger for good measure. I didn’t taste much ginger (surprising with the amount I put in there), but that’s ok, it was all rosy and lovely anyway.

glad you are feeling better. Do you think the pollution is the cause of it?

I think the pollution is the cause of my nagging cough, and it certainly isn’t helping with everything else, but I think I’m also just allergic to pollen of chinese flowering trees, though I’m not allergic to any other pollen. Now with a fair amount of allergy medication I’m doing better.

I think the body gets used to your regional pollen over time. I know when I travel anywhere in the Spring, I am in for problems. I am a sneezy, weepy mess. We used to visit my In-Laws where I currently live and my allergies here were almost unbearable then. Now that I live here, it is not quite as bad as when I was just visiting prior to 14 years ago. I try to eat my local honey, too, which helps.

And glad you are feeling better. It is such a downer to be sick on such an adventure!

Glad you got some meds and are feeling better.

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-86: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
85-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
