I’m finally sipping this tea down!

Took me long enough. Phew. I need to stop hoarding the tea like I’ll never see it again.
Anyways, I’m on my first cup of this and I’m realizing that now every time I brew a black tea, I just want my beloved Laoshan Black. Other black teas, regardless of region, are not pleasing me.

This one is nice though. I really appreciate the sweetness in the tea. It’s thicker, but not in the creamy broth way… it’s more syrupy. I also get a nice cooling tingle on the top of my tongue. Second steeping is a little creamier and has a smokiness which is interesting.

It’s a good tea, not extremely sad to see it go though.

Agreed, I need to drink more from the deeper recesses of my stash. I have a bit of just about every verdant tea ever offered, some of which are almost two years old.

Bio

I am very excited to delve into as many different types of tea as possible… so this should be interesting. I am really looking forwards to tasting all the wide array of flavours that can come from pure tea leaves.

Currently, I am having a love affair with oolongs. Mostly green, though I am stretching out into more oxidized oolongs. Black teas are also in my love fest as they can be so surprising sometimes (I used to drink bagged red rose x.x)
I would really love to get to know green tea a lot more and white tea.. all tea to be honest. I want to know them all.

Tea rating system:

0-50: Do people actually enjoy this?
50-60: Slight improvement, not recommendable.
60-70: Alright, though easily forgettable.
70-80: Good flavour, though not a ‘go to’ tea.
80-90: Great tea – complex and memorable.
90-100: Extremely delicious and complex teas that leave me craving more.

On top of tea, I have a love for music. Generally all music, though I am partial to indie rock/folk/pop/electronic. Follow me if you also enjoy indie music and would like to trade some artists!

I’m always open to new tea and music suggestions. Happy tea drinking to you all.
