drank Wild Grey by ESP Emporium
1855 tasting notes

I really like this blend, but I’ve been thinking about Earl Greys and Jasmine today, so I mixed in an extra tsp of my unnamed chinese jasmine green into this cup. It probably ended up being a little too much tea for 12 oz of water, but its still enjoyable. The green tea flavor is strong and grassy, but the underlying citrus of the Earl Grey and the floral of the Jasmine do work well together. I think this one will improve on the resteep when the flavors are a little more subdued.

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.
