1963 tasting notes

Ergh, I feel like a zombie this morning. I seem to be completely over the jet lag, but this chest cold is knocking me down. A friend is defending her dissertation today, though, so I drug myself into work anyway.

You know, I think I have to go ahead and bump this one up a couple of points. Over time this has definitely come to be one of my favorites. Love the sweet fig flavor accompanied by all the florals and a nice rich black tea underneath. Today’s cup has a particularly sweet aftertaste that is definitely soothing my cough-worn throat. Let’s hope it also injects some life into me this morning so I can make it through the day here!

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.
89-85: 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
84-80: 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.
