187 Tasting Notes

This is a really nice light refreshing tea to enjoy. It is quite flexible about how long you steep it and does not require milk. I had two of my largest cups today :-)

Onto the next packet. I like this, but I am keen to try some other ones soon to see whether they are as good

This is the best I have made this tea since I started commenting on here. Strange that it is so variable – I think it must jst be very sensitive to brew temperature and time. This was hot water but not boiling (90 degC??) and brewed for 3 mins. And awesome

The Red Cross sent me a tea bag. It’s as if they know me really well! I always thought that a Kenyan and Assam blend would be incredible, but I wasn’t as impressed as I was expecting. That said, the assam flavour was very tasty with tastes of berries. A final comment: I didn’t let it brew long and it went very strong, so ifyou drink this, be careful not to over-brew

That’s the end of that tea as well. Not the best oolong I have, but a solid one and just as good on the second steep as on the first

This tea has been polished off now. I let this get very strong and just added a bit more milk, but it worked okay. A little creamier than I would have like, but nice

Yummy. I wanted a strong-ish green tea flavour before bed, and this was ideal

I never used to like this tea. My friends and I say it tastes of war. Or at least of war films. But I quite like the smokiness now, with a little milk

Two cups. Still a wonderful tea. I’m trying to run it down so I can justify buying some of the Yunnan Gold First Grade Tea from First Class Teas… it sounds incredible

My housemates were keen to have this again. Once you get someone onto a good thing, they don’t like to let it go! And it IS a good thing

I finished being a student in 2008 and began working in The North, where “tea” means “evening meal” which confuses me regularly. I love encouraging people to try new teas, but when I’m not doing that, I play the trombone, play some sport (badly) and socialise
