Bio

I am a supertaster (genetically), so this is why a lot of my reviews may seem weird.

I’m a musician, nerd, gamer, audiophile, and a collector of wonderfully exotic flashlight :].

Ratings are as followed…

NO RATING: I try some teas outside of my ‘norm’, and I try to stay neutral… some teas I simply don’t like, and I try to rate based on quality, not preferences (this is very hard). If I can’t come to a conclusion it’s because I feel it’s outside of my realm of experience with that type of tea, and I don’t feel like I can adequately rate the tea. I’ll give my thoughts on it, but I wouldn’t want to taint the rating system in place for the tea.

1-30: I bought these teas because the packages looked awesome, but fool me once, shame on you tea company.

31-50: Meh, usually cheap product that yields poor tea. Anything in this rating is like comparing ramen to high-end cuisine. I expect teas at the super market to fall within this range by default (though that’s not always the case).

51-70: These teas are usually teas that don’t meet my expectations based on that type of tea. Think Lipton… not the worst by far, but far from the best. Sometimes I’ll give teas within this rating a second chance. I’ll also finish off any tea within this rating (usually).

71-90: These are great. If you were to offer me a cup of tea within this rating, I’d never turn it down. Sure, the lower 70’s aren’t the best, but neither is 90. C’mon, it’s fun, could be worse, and it’s there… so why not!? Some of these teas I actually keep in stock because they can be a great price:quality ratio! (I’m poor… v_v)

91-99: This is good stuff. This is like eating at a fancy restaurant that gives you parsley as a side because it’s the second half of your meal. These teas are generally out of my normal price-range, but not always. A tea within this score MUST meet and exceed all expectations within that tea’s norm. All ingredients must be fresh (or aged properly), potent, and a perfect text-book example of the sub-type.

100: This number is the golden number. 100 is reserved for prime examples, and it’s rare. I expect teas that hit this number to set a new standard… “raise the bar” if you will. If I have rated a type of tea 100, and a new tea comes along that I think is better… the old tea will be bumped down and the new tea will take it’s place as 100 (only within it’s type). 100 is a wonderful number if you’re a tea.
