Sipdown. Work tea. Pretty nice peach flavor, but not too strong.

For Green Loose Leaf Puerh from Gong-Fu tea
Work tea – earthy, just okay, not the best sheng, no idea how old it was, I managed to get through my overly optimistic purchase. So yay, I guess.

Flavors: Earth

Sample from my last order.

30s- cocoa malt, sweet potato as it cools
At least 5 steeps after this.
Very good

Today this tea tasted significantly different for me. I don’t know if I got the ratio just right or what, but it decreased my enjoyment of this tea.
5.9g, 180F, 100 ml teapot, mostly western
fruity, citrus, almost hoppy, make that definitely hoppy – that IPA finish. I don’t like IPAs. The finish downgrades my rating of this tea. Pretty much destroyed my enjoyment. :(

Flavors: Citrus, Fruity, Hops

Backlog, sipdown.
Dry leaf smells like plum/raisin
200F, 4 min western
Tastes sweet and raisin. Pretty soft and more a texture than a taste. It gets more citrus as it cools. Decided to take this one to work as I needed a real tea there. It’s not special enough to keep it at home.

Flavors: Plums, Raisins, Sweet

As good as ever, sad to see it go. Will reorder in the future, eventually.

I only had a very little bit of this left so I mixed it with Shang’s White tea wu-long.
Soft and juicy, with hay.

I think this is the tea I have. Received in trade from Daylon R Thomas
200F, 1 min, western, backlog
Sweet and malty, smooth and thick, roasted note in background.
My stomach was a little weird after drinking this tea, so I didn’t continue much past two steeps. I have more so I’ll eventually try it again to see if I have the same reaction.

Flavors: Malt, Roasted, Smooth, Sweet, Thick

It’s the general Alishan, though their standard one is fairly roasted. The Roasted is darker.

I started my tea journey with Stash/Celestial Seasonings tea bags years ago. Mostly loose leaf now, though bags are easier for work.

I like black, oolong, white, and herbals. Green tea is hit or miss.

I play video games, read, and do pottery. My current favorite tea mug is one I threw and glazed.

I generally review teas twice – initial and final steeps.

I try to keep my cupboard to what I currently have available.

85-100 are teas that I loved and want to keep in stock.
71-84 are teas that are good. I may or may not get them again. Source for daily drinkers/work teas.
60-70 are teas that I didn’t like. I’ll finish what I bought.
Anything less than 60…nope.
