1931 tasting notes

I wanted to brew a tea this morning that I had had before, knew was sweet with no hint of butteriness or saltiness, and was relatively robust to test my kettle, brewing setup and taste buds. Everything has been newly cleaned (well, maybe not the taste buds), so here’s hoping the weird flavors from yesterday are gone.

Yay I think the off flavor is gone! This is sweet and fruity and not salty or savory at all. I do quite enjoy this tea and if Tower of London didn’t exist, this one would have to have a place in my cupboard I think. It’s definitely good for those times when you want a very flavored tea. It’s smooth and yummy.

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.
89-85: 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: 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.
