drank Earl Grey by Woyton
2006 tasting notes

I have a long layover in Köln (Cologne) before I get on my night train to Warsaw, and this afternoon I hit a wall and just had to get a pick me up [edited; initially my iPhone autocorrected this to “pickle up”]. This is the first cafe I found with free wifi, and I was pleasantly surprised to see the “tee” in pyramid sachets. I have no clue what company supplies their tea, and if website seems to imply it’s their in-house label. It does say that the base tea is from India; I’m not sure if that world view includes Sri Lanka, but it tastes like a Ceylon base to me. Which is great for me, and I’m enjoying the cup quite a bit. A nice recharge this afternoon for the rest of the trip!

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: 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.
