drank Pumpkin Chai by DAVIDsTEA
2201 tasting notes

Today I went and filled up my kettle from the water fountain on the hope that there is a filter or something on that, since I still haven’t gotten the brita pitcher cleaned for work. Well, it’s almost the weekend so I will clean it then.

I’ve temporarily shifted my stash-busting goals from sipping-down samples to working on tins that only have a bit of tea left in them. This is a nefaroius goal because when I have a few large empty tins, I will justify to myself the Dammann Frères order, since I am pretty sure those teas will come in non-resealable bags.

This tea had two servings left in it’s tin… and now it’s down to one serving left. I also have a lychee congou I think I can kill off pretty quickly. Added benefits of feeling good about stash busting and opening up tins for new teas.

Well, not sure if this water is any better. Either its still taste-sucking, or I’m just feeling meh about this one today. It’s probably the water. Oh well!

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.
