A coworker gave me a few bags of this. It’s pretty good Oolong. She said it was from Taiwan, but I’ve not been able to find it online.

I can’t give this a number rating because I totally steeped it incorrectly! I got it at a party, poured water over it, and realized it was ice cold! However, I let it sit there for a while and still it came out a good cup! Nice and jasminey but not too purfumey!

drank Lady Grey by Twinings

I wasn’t sure what I wanted, and I have a lot of this for some reason, so this is what I’m having. And you know, I actually like it. (I guess there is a reason I have so much of it.) It really is a citrusy take on Earl Grey and a decent one at that. It’s good to keep some bagged tea around for when you need a quick and mindless cup, and this does just the trick.

This one makes my pinky go up in the air! I feel hoity-toity when I drink it!

So this one packs a little bit of a punch! I think it’s because of the pink peppercorns. The blend of that and apples goes really well and the tea stands up on its own as well. It’s not my favorite holiday tea (I’m avoiding apples lately and the kick is more than I like with white tea), but it’s still a good cup!

Generally, I’m less fond of white teas because they don’t have enough kick — this sounds almost just right.

Bio

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
