Sipdown. I was never able to reproduce that great first impression.

It takes a couple of infusions to start to unfurl, but I was still finding unfurled oolong during later steeps. Steeps were gritty from ginseng powder and I felt that it overpowered the tea. Pretty sure I don’t like it as well as I thought. Sweet, almost overly so, eventually drying at end. Dropping my rating. 80

Flavors: Sweet

Bio

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 mostly up to date.

Ratings
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.
