442 tasting notes

This is a tea that I have mixed feelings about. It doesn’t taste like what I was looking for from it, nor do I really love it or ever crave it. I didn’t replace it when my first bag finished but now as I am doing the wall I decided it was worth a revisit. And I’m still mixed. It’s a pu’erh, which automatically means I’m hesitant after having only ever found one I love. And black, I can’t stand it. But when I add milk and sugar something happens and I enjoy it while I sip the cup. I just, never want to brew a second cup of it. It isn’t overly minty, and even is slightly watered down in the entire flavour, but I’m not tossing/trading what’s left in this bag, either.

See? Confusing!

An avid tea addict in the GTA, Ontario, Canada. I’m always looking for new teas and new tea addicted friends!

My preference is loose leaf of all varieties, however the occasional bagged tea can come along and charm me. Flavoured or straight, there is a good chance that I will be falling in love.

My ratings system is based on the smiley faces above the ratings scale.

0-10 — This tea didn’t get past the initial sip process. I just couldn’t bring myself to drink more, I found it so horrible.

11-50 — It made it past first sips, but as I drank a bit more I realized I really wasn’t enjoying the tea, and would never drink it again.

51-60 — I probably made it through the cup, but won’t be trying another one.

61-69 — Either it’s a mystery tea and I can’t decide if I like it or not, or it is one that I felt was purely adequate.

70-85 — These are the teas that I appreciate and/or like. If they are falling in this area they are ones that I would definitely re-buy, however are not ones that I must always have on hand. The good, but not the amazing.

86-94 — These are the favourites. My cupboard feels empty if they aren’t inside.

95-100 — Tea perfection!
