1850 tasting notes

I wrote a tasting note yesterday for a cold brew, but Steepster seems to have swallowed it. Even when the dashboard rebooted it never appeared, though it is on the recent posts list and on my tea log. Ah well. Anyway, this note is partly to test my ability to post a tasting note to the dashboard. Now that it is hot here I won’t be drinking much hot tea on the weekends (no AC at home) so fewer tasting notes (and sipdowns, unfortunately!)

Another successful cold brew with this tea; it is quite tasty. This one is perhaps edging in over brewed for a cold brew, as the green tea is a bit more grassy and occasionally I get a hint of bitterness, but otherwise it is appley and refreshing.

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.
