drank Thé Roi Soleil by Ladurée
2201 tasting notes

My cold brewed green of the day, once again courtesy of MissB. I tend to drink these without looking at what the flavoring “should” be, so it’s always a surprise. This one, I would have guessed citrus and vanilla, which is pretty close. Knowing that there is also rhubarb, now I really taste the rhubarb. It is not unlike the rhubarb and custard hard candies that I got in England. This was quite tasty, although the cream was perhaps a little much? I dunno, with the new association in my head, I like it better than I did before I looked it up. Weird how that works.

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.
