drank Pink Sonoma by Red Leaf Tea
1848 tasting notes

Sipdown, 222. Cold brewed the rest of my sample of this one.

Iiiiinteresting. It smells like jasmine wine, if such a thing actually existed (now I want such a thing to exist). Taste-wise, it’s kind of surprising… there is almost a savory note to it, like a grassy butteriness from the tea. I may have left this too long in the fridge without straining it, so perhaps that’s why. It kind of takes away from the sightly floral wine flavor, which otherwise is pretty enjoyable. I do still get a sense of crisp, white wine grapes, an alcoholic dryness, and the floral notes of some desserty whites. Bumping my rating a tad because it is definitely better cold, and does a good job with the wine flavor.

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.
