Thanks DCS for the sample!

This is a good tea, and I should rank it higher, because despite being in a tea bag it was quite lovely. My problem however was that it did not taste anything like an Oriental Beauty to me.

It does have some subtle hints of stone fruit and a nectar like sweetness. It is a pleasant tea to drink…I’m just fairly confident that it is not an Oriental Beauty (or “premium grade”)

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
