158 tasting notes

Yet another rating bump. I’ve been trying to drink this pretty much every day so that I can get it out of my cabinet, since space is at a premium, and the more I play with temperatures the better it is. It is the single most overwhelmingly bake-y tea I have ever encountered, and the smell of it when brewed to the right parameters makes my mouth water the same way freshly baked goods do.

That said…

I am still not sure that I will be getting it again.

Ohhh, I dunno. I like tea but I’m kind of a tea newbie. At this point I can say with authority that I may never be anything else, no matter how many teas I try…there is always something new out there.

I write a lot.

I also play way too many video games.


Ratings! (Bout time, wot?) This is a new arrangement, so…subject to change!

1-10: Not potable. First-sip disasters.

11-30: Intensely unpleasant…won’t catch me finishing the cup.

31-50: I really don’t like it…but maybe somebody else out there would.

51-70: Drinkable, but probably not the first thing I’m going to reach for.

71-90: Pretty good tea, and stuff that there’s a good chance I’ll have on-hand. Will do in a pinch at the low end, all the way up to regular visitors to my infuser on the high end.

91-100: Teas I really do not want to be without.
