1015 tasting notes

1st steep, 3 minutes. I wanted something simple, that didn’t require any fuss or additives. So I’m going with this. The dry leaf is very thin and almost wirey with curled orange pieces throughout. The first infusion of this is almost like a plain black tea. I can taste very little orange, but the oolong base is quite nice. Almost a bit harsh, but not astringent. The brew has a bakey type scent which is lovely. Since I realized that each steep of this tea was fairly different I will be making separate tasting notes throughout the day.

I just received this one today too – haven’t tried it yet – it wasn’t one that I requested – so – it should be interesting! I wouldn’t turn down free tea tho! LOL

Bio

Formally known as mrawlins2

I am a former coffee drinker turned tea lover.

Black tea is probably my favorite type of tea, but I rather enjoy most types… I’m even developing a taste for pu-erh.

Rating Scale:
0-10: This tea is either flavorless or just plain undrinkable. I will avoid these teas in the future.

11-20: I was only able to make it through a few sips before pouring the tea out.

21-30: I may have been able to make it through the first cup but the thought of having another has me cringing.

31-40: Teas in this range are not horrible, but nothing I would seek out in the future.

41-60: Would drink if offered, but would not purchase for myself.

61-70: Okay, nothing special

71-80: Enjoyable, but I have to be in the mood for these. Probably would purchase if I found a really great price.

81-90: Pretty good tea, will probably be one of my favorites.

91-95: These teas are really excellent. I wouldn’t necessarily run out and buy more of these (just because there are so many teas out there that I haven’t tried), but I would miss this tea.

96-99: Terrific, very impressive.

100: This special rating is reserved for teas that are absolutely perfect in my opinion. I will only give out a rating of 100 to one tea per category (Earl Grey, unflavored black, dessert tea, Irish Breakfast, etc). These are teas that I really want to have around.

Perfect Teas so Far:

Earl Grey: Saint Isaac’s Blend (Russian Earl Grey) from Upton

Dessert Tea: Marco Polo from Mariage Freres

Unflavored Black: Emperor’s Red from Premium Steap
