Sipdown, 121. Cold brew for lunch today, then a hot brew this afternoon.

Cold, this was lovely. Jasminey but not too overwhelming. I definitely enjoyed it with lunch.

Hot, I was less successful this time. For my recent greens I have been using one full Teavivre sample pouch in my 12oz mug, steeped for 2 minutes, and they have all turned out very well. This I did the same with, but it was way too bitter. Perhaps it was the addition of the jasmine. Oh well, live and learn.

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.
