Sipdown, 101. After having this one regularly for the past two weeks I have definitely come to the conclusion that it is not for me. Although it is clearly a lovely tea, it’s just not the kind of black tea that I tend to enjoy; too fruity, too much of whatever that note is that I don’t like. I am definitely glad that I got to try it, though. Also apparently my like/dislike line for Taiwanese black teas is hard to judge, meaning future orders for Taiwanese black teas will be tricky. Ah well, that’s what samples and small amounts are for!

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.
