drank Bangkok Blend by Harney & Sons
1992 tasting notes

Sipdown, 180. Steepster, you are killing me with this nonsense today. Load the f-ing pages!

I think this sample is old and has suffered from storage in a ziploc bag. It’s really not that flavorful anymore. The cold brew I did the other day was much more successful, which leads me to think that perhaps my using old teas for cold brews is pretty much the only good use for them these days. This is slightly creamy and slightly lemony but not much else. Ah well, it’s something I run into a lot going through my old blends.

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.
