527 tasting notes

Backlog: sipdown. Dry smell – wood, burnt stuff. 100ml gaiwan, 180F. I didn’t really have enough leaf so improvising.
Taste – fruity, smooth, no aroma, wood. Wet leaf smells strongly of burnt cherry/fruit wood.

Not a whole lot of anthing from this tea- no real flavor. Compared to regular oolongs it’s meh. Compared to the aged oolong Liquid Proust shared, it’s not even close.

Glad that I only got a sample and that it was on sale. Random – I hate their steeping directions.

Flavors: Burnt, Cherry Wood, Fruity, Smooth, Wood

I started my tea journey with Stash/Celestial Seasonings tea bags years ago. All loose leaf, unless I’m sick or traveling.

I like black, oolong, white, herbals, and raw/ripe pu’erh. I don’t drink green tea often.

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.

My cupboard is completely out of date. I have a spreadsheet (it’s current!!!) that’s over 300 teas. Pretty equal amounts of black, white, oolong, raw, & ripe with a little bit of green/herbal.

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.
