53 Tasting Notes

I’m thinking outside the box this morning, so I made a cup of Bao Zhong from a sample. My oolong experience is limited, but until now I didn’t remember liking it. This is a nice, mild cup. I am sure if I had steeped it longer, the flavor would be stronger, but I probably wouldn’t enjoy it as much.

This is one of my favorite teas! Yogi Teas have been the best herbal tea from tea bags I have had. So flavorful, but not overpowering.

After finishing a box, I won’t be buying this tea again. It was enjoyable, but it was VERY flavorful, to the point of not really tasting like tea.

Bio

I’ve been drinking tea off and on for a few years, but only in the last year have I started to test out loose leafs, and expand my taste buds.

I consider myself very new to the world of teas, especially when it comes to properly steeping, and knowing much about what certain teas are supposed to be like.

After discovering there was more to tea than Red Rose OP, I have traditionally tended to drink mint teas and similar herbals (but no fruity ones), red rooibos, honeybush, and the occasional matte. I’ve only recently discovered white teas and oolongs, which I really enjoy.

I’m expanding my knowledge, trying new teas, and just starting to learn about temperature/steep times, etc.

0: I don’t even want to taste it.
1-10: I can’t finish the cup.
11-30: I’ll finish my cup, but that’s it.
31-50: I will drink it until I’ve used it all up, or find someone to give it to. It’s ok, but it’s not something I tend to reach for.
51-70: I enjoy it enough to reach for it specifically, but I won’t get it again.
71-80: I enjoy it quite a bit. I would recommend it to others.
81-90: I would definitely buy again, but it’s not my favorite.
91-100: The creme de la creme
