100

My favorite black tea. I think it’s mostly because it was one of the first loose leaf teas that I tried, though. (And the first I drank with any regularity.)

I have a trip to Boston coming up in January. It’s a work trip, but I’m going to make sure to take some time to get some new teas. I used the ratings/tasting notes here to form a list of five new-to-me teas I’d like to get from Tealuxe, and now I’m trying to investigate what other tea options are in town. If anyone knows of any worth checking out, please let me know!

I’ve been into tea, at some level, since college with a first tin of loose tea brought back by my parents from Oxford. My love of tea increased with a visit to Boston and a chance cup at Tealuxe. Since then I’ve only gotten more interested in tea and have developed more of an appreciation for it.

100: a perfect cuppa. these are the teas I’ll keep in my cupboard and tend to be one per type of tea.

90-99: will definitely get more of this tea

80-89: likely to get more and perhaps it will become a favorite with time

70-79: very good, depending on my mood or the season

60-69: wouldn’t actively try to get this tea, but also wouldn’t avoid it in a tea shop or restaurant

50-59: run-of-the-mill tea for me

40-49: decent, would hit the spot in some moods, but probably wouldn’t purchase it for my cupboard

30-39: okay, will try again, maybe

20-29: meh. I’d try this tea again if no other were available

10-19: drinkable, but a forced cup

0-9: didn’t even finish the cup
