drank Toasted Fig by American Tea Room
2201 tasting notes

I think I was almost afraid to revisit this one. I really liked it the first time I had it, but then I never really got into other puers. I worried that I didn’t like this one as much as I thought I did, and instead of using up my sample it just sat there in my sample drawer.

Well it turns out that I don’t love this one as much as I did the first time I had it, although I do still enjoy it. This is an oaky, woody puer. Not fishy or dirty or whatever like some, but definitely woody, and I’m not sure that it’s a flavor profile that I’m that into. The rest of the flavors, like sweet bourbon, is quite yummy, but not enough for me to restock. Glad to have put this one to bed, finally, though.

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-86: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
85-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
