1994 tasting notes

This counts for my sample reduction because while I didn’t polish it off, now I only have enough of this tea left for one cup. I’m also encountering the tea dust that always seems to occur at the bottom of a tin/pouch, which means this cup is a little stronger than I would normally prefer. Still, I totally love this tea. I can order it online from Tea Palace (located in London), and shipping isn’t too bad, but I have a feeling it is a tea that won’t be in my cupboard until I make another stop in London. Of course its going to be quite a long time before I am ordering any new teas online, so its kind of beside the point! Still, I will miss this one after my next (last) cup.

You are so funny. I have the very same approach with sample reduction (especially if I write the review for it, even if there is some left).

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.
