1855 tasting notes

Om nom nom. It’s kind of amazing having fresh sachets of this, because they are even better than before, if that is possible. It’s just SO GOOD.

Noticed this morning that the hot water dispenser at the hotel says it is dispensing water at 197°F, which is a little cooler than I would normally brew black teas. But I usually brew Harney blacks under boiling anyway, so it works ok. Too bad I didn’t bring any oolongs!

Preparation

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: I’m in LOVE with these teas.
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: Tasty teas that I enjoy, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but wouldn’t seek out. They don’t quite do it for me in one aspect or another; often just not quite my style
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.
