Finished the last of this the other day (along with the zhu rong black, which brings me down to 63), and this is yet another reminder to myself to get some more, because I really enjoyed it.

It’s funny reading through the tasting notes, though, because people get a lot of notes from this tea that I just don’t see at all… maybe because I’m not very careful with my steeping, or something. I really like it, though, so it’s not like this is a problem… just a little odd, is all.

I taste weird things in my tea, so I just assume I have an “undeveloped palate” WRT tea. And wine. :)

Bio

Hi! I’m a linguistics major at a certain infamous east coast tech school, I write, I rock climb, and I have a mild obsession with Diana Wynne Jones.

I’m also Russian, which means I’ve been drinking tea all my life — always loose leaf, and always black. Black teas are still my favorite, but of course I dabble in a bit of everything. I really like ceylon, I recently discovered puer, and I’m having a lot of fun exploring flavored black teas (and making silly fandom blends on adagio…).

My tea cabinet may or may not be accurate at the moment, as I am transitioning between locations…

Rating system (work in progress):
95 – Wow!
85 – My favorites. Cupboard staple material.
75 – Really good. Debating whether to keep it around…
65 – Quite pleasant, but not for me. I probably won’t (re)purchase.
55 – Just okay.
