drank Lady Grey by Twinings
709 tasting notes

Well, apparently my travel mug was so excited about the arrival of tea last night that it partied too hard. When I poured water into the mug of Wellness I was meant to have this morning, it cracked. Twice. Loudly. So, it sits in the sink at home, waiting to be disposed of once it cools off. Now I need to make a trip to the mall tonight to get another. I think I will stick with the same brand, as there aren’t very many options locally and I really want a clear one – That seems surprisingly uncommon around here.

So, now, as you can read, I am drinking Lady Grey instead of Wellness. Maybe I’ll have an all black tea day. All I know is that it’s extremely cold outside, and I need something to warm me up from my wait for the bus. I don’t look forward to travel mug searching tonight, but this winter I don’t want to go two days in a row without my lovely travelling companion.

I’ve been drinking loose tea since 2010 and my tastes have changed a lot over those years. For the last few, I’ve been a fan of unflavoured Chinese blacks and shu puerh. I still drink other things, but that’s where I am.

I live in a rural area with my husband, cat, and soon to be firstborn. I love tea, reading, doctor who, knitting, crosswords, board games, the marvel universe, and lots of other things.

I’m not often rating teas numerically any more but I want to leave this to explain my past ratings:
I try to only log teas once or twice because I drink a lot of the same ones repeatedly. My rating is based on my perception of the tea at first tasting and is adjusted if anything notable occurs in subsequent cups. I may also factor in the price and customer service but try to note that when I can.

81 – 100: These are great teas, I love them, regularly stock them or savour them as unique treats.
71 – 80: These are solid. I drink them, I like them, I may or may not keep them on hand regularly. This is still good stuff.
61 – 70: Just okay. I can drink it, but it doesn’t stand out to me. Might be lower quality, not to my taste, or outside my comfort zone.
41 – 60: Not likely to keep drinking…hoping hubby will enjoy!
0 – 40: No thank you, please. Take it away and don’t make me finish the cup.
