drank Don Juan by Inti Zen
1851 tasting notes

Sipdown, 160.

I’ve been MIA this weekend because I’ve been super busy on a recent trip to Chicago. I did bring a pile of Inti Zen tea bags with me on the off chance I would have time to drink some, and I drank the one tea bag that I had of this one yesterday. I brought an Inti Zen mix pack back with me from Argentina because the flavors sounded good, but they’ve been a tad lackluster so I haven’t gone through them.

This one was ok, but it didn’t have a ton of flavor. I am wondering if these bags would be better two to a cup. It smelled nicely of caramel and red fruits, but the flavor was weak. Well, at least it wasn’t bitter or astringent. Glad to be getting back to my tea tonight!

I have had a few of these teas, and indeed it´s somewhat mediocre tea (though I am fond of silencio andino). But definetely try two teabags to a cup, they fill their teabags with just 1.5 g I think – the standard in mainland Europe is 2-2.5 g and british teabags usually are 2.25 up to 3 something!

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.
