1989 tasting notes

Now here’s an older floral tea that hasn’t lost it’s punch. I do admit that I probably oversteeped this… apparently I didn’t hit “start” on my timer and only removed the basket when I started wondering why it had seemed longer than 3 minutes. But! It’s none the worse for the wear, fortunately!

At this point, it’s actually even slightly sweet, somewhat of a marshmallowyness from the white tea, I would guess. This worked out well. Rose and jasmine (though the jasmine is perhaps less dominant than the rose at this point), two of my faves! At least it seems like all of my older teas are ones that I love. :)

Preparation
185 °F / 85 °C 3 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

I hate it when I do that! I just pour the water over the leaves and wander off like “Done!” Then I come running back.

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.
89-86: 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
85-80: 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.
