1014 tasting notes

I really bought this one for my husband as he has been searching for a replacement for his beloved Plim Harvest. He also loves anything tart. However, we like to share decaf teas at night and I’m not too into the tart side of things. I was hoping this would be a nice middle ground for us.
When I opened the bag, it was dust. Seriously, this teadust put my Chatsford infuser to the test. Chatsford won! This tea smells primarily of fresh ground cinnamon but I believe that tart is the first noticeable flavor followed closely behind by the fresh cinnamon. I added a bit of cane sugar and bit of half and half which surprisingly isn’t a total mistake with this tea. I think the additions help me to enjoy the tartness more than I normally would. My husband hasn’t tried it yet, but I suspect it will be a hit.

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
