I had a Puerh heavy day yesterday including a really late session. Even got to ‘meet’ very nice people (Garret from Mandala Tea) and others. Today I started with some puerh but felt like having some Oolong.

I’ve already made tasting notes on this one so I just want to add something. I usually make this tea making 2-3(maybe 4) steeps. Then I use the remaining leaves to cold brew them over night. I love the taste of a roasty Oolong when cold, it is somehow refreshing and slightly filling at the same time.

195 °F / 90 °C

Ohhhh I am so jealous of you meeting Garret!

Nice guy. Passionate about tea. Bet that if you are around him the passion would stick.

I’ve seen some of the conversations people have had with him, and he does seem like a really nice guy. I will have buy from him at some point.

Garret is so nice. I’m definitely ordering more from mandala when funds allow for it.

The one conversation where Garret and JC hijacked the comments in your one tasting note Claire comes to mind!

Claire

That was pretty fun to come back to the PC and read! I turned off the computer to go make dinner, and afterwards Rayn and I watched a couple of Merlin episodes. When I came back my inbox was full of “_____ from Steepster commented on your review”.

JC

LOL, yep. That was fun.

Discovered tea a few years ago and I’ve been exploring ever since. I’m looking forward to keep learning and enjoy tea as I do. Keep learning, those who “know” stop learning and become irrelevant to the world.

I’m adding the scale because I noted that we all use the same system but it doesn’t mean the same to all.(I rate the tea not by how much I ‘like it’ only; there are flavors/scents I don’t like but they are quality and are how they are supposed to be and I rate them as such).

90 – 100: AMAZING. This the tea I feel you should drop whatever you are doing and just enjoy.

80-89: Great tea that I would recommend because they are above ‘average’ tea, they usually posses that ‘something’ extra that separates them from the rest.

70-79: An OK tea, still good quality, taste and smell. For me usually the tea that I have at work for everyday use but I can still appreciate and get me going through my day.

60-69: Average nothing special and quality is not high. The tea you make and don’t worry about the EXACT time of steep because you just want tea.

30-59: The tea you should probably avoid, the tea that you can mostly use for iced tea and ‘hide’ what you don’t like.

1-29: Caveat emptor! I feel sorry for my enemies when they drink this tea. :P
