1788 Tasting Notes

80

Over the several years during which time I have had this tea, it has grown on me, and I have come to like it more and more. Sometimes I drink it strong, sometimes I drink it weak; sometimes with sugar, sometimes without. It has been a good and faithful tea, and I shall certainly miss it when I run out in the next week or so. I may just have to add it to my shopping list.

Putting the leaves into an extended soak in a bowl.

Delicious. Drank this outside on my patio. Not as strong as I was expecting, but it was worth every second of the time I spent putting it through a good ten infusions.

Bio

“I love trading tea and trying new teas. My favourites are oolong (mainly Chinese) and pu’erh.
Will gladly talk all day about tea.”

The above was my bio when I joined five years ago, and I felt it needed to be updated. I still love pu’erh, though I have begun to take preference toward cooked, shou. Oolongs are certainly still a go-to tea for me, but I have expanded my horizons to begin including greens and blacks based upon the weather and how I am feeling.

Still more than glad to talk about tea – anytime, anywhere, anyplace.
Additionally, if fountain pens, books, music, or computers are on the discussion list…

My ratings, this “personal enjoyment scale” about which I talk, are just that – based on how much I enjoyed the tea. I might have enjoyed it immensely, yet do not keep it stocked for various reasons. On the flip side, I have a few teas that are “good” but not “great,” which I keep stocked for various reasons.
