drank Taiwan Red Jade by Jing Tea
149 tasting notes

Considering the price, this tea is a serious let down.

Caramel, candied fruit flavours, and eucalyptus (and if you go on the website it mentions mint). This is exactly the same tones and notes one detects in a Ceylon. Jing just felt like raising the price because its unusual to find a black tea from Taiwan.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 45 sec

blah blah blah, come on people, not every tea can be ranked 80+. Rant, rave; but honestly not every tea you drink can be ranked the same, otherwise you defeat the point of giving the grade!

So as other people have broken down their ranking systems, I am doing the same.

I’ve also decided to update my reviewing system. I’m going to be ranking across a 3 system scale on: taste, accurate representation, and price.

Taste = 0-100 (see old ranking)
Accurate Representation = 75 being average (how true it is to its style of production. So a Darjeeling that tastes like an Assam would rank lower)
Price = Percent difference of what I think the tea is worth

-————————————————————————

Old Ranking
90-100 = I’m quite happy to buy again
70-89 = Acceptable representation
50-69 = Wouldn’t order again
20-49 = Meh
10-19 = Average tea bag ranking
0-9 = Needed to brush my teeth immediately
