drank Keemun and Whole Rose by Jing Tea
1965 tasting notes

I got a sample of this tea from KittyLovesTea in our last swap. Thanks so much! I couldn’t resist, especially considering my craving for rose recently! I used the entire sample in a pot this morning.

I really enjoyed this tea. The Keemun base was nice and yummy… I am really starting to enjoy a solid Keemun-only base on simply flavored teas, like Lupicia’s Earl Grey. The rose was also lovely, rich and strong but never perfumey. It reminded me somewhat of Upton’s Rose Congou, but with a somewhat stronger, sweeter rose. Definitely a delicious tea.

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.
