Sipdown, 147. Cold brew. I decided this one would be a sipdown this afternoon when I took a sip of my cold brewed tea and realized it just wasn’t that good. I have maybe two more cups of this left, but it’s just not worth it.

For one think, I really just don’t like gunpowder green teas. Green tea with some smokiness? No thanks, not for me. The flavor on this one has also faded dramatically and it’s really just like rose green, which in theory I should like, but this one isn’t doing it for me. I think I liked it better when I could still taste the lemon. Anyway, I don’t feel bad about throwing out a little bit of leaf. It’s pretty liberating.

Ohhhh, a sipdown is trying to get through a tea! I have been thinking a sipdown is like a showdown: you try lots and decide on a winner. Silly me!

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.
