92

sigh… drinking the very last of this today. I dragged it out for a long time, saving this one for special days and adding some extra laoshan black to make it go farther! Hopefully David will decide to offer it again later this summer (hint hint!) :)

Clearly I should start logging some of the treats I’ve been getting through the tea club instead of just bemoaning the loss of my favorites ;)

Your wish (and mine) has come true, tea bird! David added it back to the website last week! Yay!

Oh hey you’re right! I completely missed that, thanks :D

I know! I was looking for something else, & it was like, “hey! When did Ty get that again?”

Some notes on ratings:

I’d have separate rating scales for tea types if that were possible (probably Black, Flavored Black, Darjeeling/Dark Oolong, White/Green/Light Oolong, and Herbal) because the flavors and quality markers are just too different. A flavored black rated 100 isn’t better than every oolong I’ve ever drunk, just delicious for a flavored black.

Ratings are a combination of my enjoyment and the perceived quality – I do often demote teas a few points for artificial flavorings, small quantity of steeps supported, or weakness of flavor (requiring extra leaf).

I pay less attention to the number than the order of my ratings; I don’t necessarily keep a stock of everything rated 80+, but if two breakfast blends are rated 82 and 84 I consistently enjoy the 84 more.

And in case it’s not obvious? I am not an expert. I don’t even know what I like until I taste it sometimes, but I’m ok with that :) I like learning to like new teas, as well as enjoying the comfort of familiar ones.
