808 Tasting Notes
I’m so glad for my new rating system. I think sometimes I didn’t rate things as highly before because I didn’t want to rate everything that highly and I thought I would. I also didn’t want to rate teas too lowly either, so I stuck to the 60-80 range. This tea, though, deserves more! I really like it a lot and am (and will be) keeping it in my cupboard, so it is now in the 90s!
I’ve had this across two tiny teapots, with one resteep each. It’s a decent oolong, but not as good as I was hoping for. I think maybe the name was fun enough to up my expectations, whereas if it were just “oolong” I’d probably have liked it just fine. So far, my fav from Golden Moon is the caramel one… I know I’m ordering tin of that!
Backlogging from a while ago. I just found written notes. Must not have been around the computer that day!!
I got a bitter bite with more jasmine than vanilla. I hoped for more of a jasmine tea, but the vanilla was still a bit much for my tastes.
