2030 tasting notes

Sipdown! So my clever scheme to empty tins was briefly foiled when I realized that I had already moved the lychee congou into a smaller tin, and the larger tin was being used for Lupicia’s Grapefruit Green, and there is more lychee congou than I can quickly sipdown in there anyway. But! I did find that my sample tin of this was nearly empty, so I cleaned it out and now I should be able to shuffle some teas around again. Also through more creative shuffling I now (nearly) have four empty large tins. Too bad I need seven! I guess I will have to break down and order more.

Anyway, back to this tea. I’ll definitely miss it. Floral and fruity and even a touch creamy, which I think comes from the mallow blossoms. When I eventually get back to London and the Tea Palace, I just might have to pick some more up.

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.
