Started the morning with a big pot of this. I added some hazelnut flavor for something a bit different.

Handed to me by a colleague, who knows I enjoy tea. Smells like chocolate and cinnamon. Tastes about the same.

drank Premium Green by Stash Tea Company

Bagged, this was the best green tea within reach, when I got to the office, this morning. Mediocre, but better than nothing.

After buying more of this, when it was released, I took the rest of my original container into work, where a nice large pot is now steeping.

drank Royal Pu'erh by Vital Tea Leaf
1740 tasting notes

Backlog:
Another one from tea tasting, yesterday. Knowing my heavy preference for pu’erh, the folks at Vital Leaf tend to – after serving everyone along the section of counter – simply set the rest of the pitcher of pu’erh in front of me.
I have no qualms with this.
Usually, I prefer the Supreme Yunnan (12 year aged) over this, the Royal (15 year aged), but yesterday it tasted better and richer than I remember, perhaps due to not having drank any for some time. (I think my cupboard no longer has any Royal.)

drank Milk Oolong by Vital Tea Leaf
1740 tasting notes

Backlog:
I really enjoy the Vital Leaf milk oolong, but I tend to shy away from buying much of it, as it is just not a tea that I could see myself drinking on a daily basis without getting tired of it. On the other hand, I love having it every once in a while, as a bit of a special tea.

I feel that way with Milk Oolongs in general, they are great ‘treat’ teas :)

Backlog:
Tea-tasting, yesterday, and this tea always gets served at some point in time. A favorite of my father’s and definitely one that I enjoy.

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.
