drank Raspberry Oolong by A C Perch's
2201 tasting notes

Today I am drinking a number of teas that are penultimate sipdowns, meaning I have one more cup left. That way when I get back home in two weeks after my trip, I can sip down a bunch of things in quick succession. This is one such tea!

This is a really nice raspberry tea. As I have noted before, the raspberry is juicy and authentic tasting. It’s also a bit lighter than some highly flavored teas, and it’s one I wasn’t able to appreciate until much later in my tea tasting career. The oolong is a fairly generic formosa oolong, so it is neither green nor roasty, but it does contribute a few subtle plummy notes I think. A pleasant afternoon tea.

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.
