drank Garden Apricot Green by Teazora
1014 tasting notes

This is a tea that my husband picked up for me at a Chinese restaurant. Apparently, they had several loose leaf varieties for sale behind the counter, but he chose this one because he thought an apricot tea sounded good. I was pretty apprehensive of this tea because the tin just had the name of the tea and “Teazora” which I’m assuming to be the name of the company. Upon inspection, the tea base appears to be sencha and there is a pretty juicy apricot scent coming from the leaves.

After brewing, this tea is a very light green-yellow and still has the scent of apricot. The base imparts a slightly vegetal flavor but is mostly buttery and smooth. The apricot is juicy but hits towards the end of the sip and in the aftertaste. Overall, this is pretty good and I’ve already drank my way through half of the tin. I’m not sure I would want another tin, but I think my husband did a decent job of picking out a good tea.

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
