drank Chinese Flower by Harney & Sons
1850 tasting notes

I was let down by my earlier fruity-sweet green tea experience today, but I still was craving something like it, so I decided to try this tea instead. Right away, the aroma of the leaves is so much nicer to me, smelling of lemony goodness like a lemon drop candy. While it was steeping the green tea aroma started coming through. Ahhh, this tea is delicious. I do really love a citrus flavored tea. Its easy to overpower a green tea with fruit flavors; the right balance is key. This makes a lovely green tea with a refreshing, bright flavor.

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.
