I made this for myself and my coworker today. She’s been letting me foist tea on her all week, AND I get to choose! so I haven’t been logging notes much, since these are all teas I’ve a) already tried, b) I am choosing them for H, not me, and c) I’ve been a little harried!
Bah. So H, well, she loooved it. The peach notes really came through this time and I gotta say, it was GOOD. Dang good.
Anyhow, it was my last day at work so I was all over the place, saying my goodbyes, thinking of last minute training items etc. When it was all over, I needed a distraction, which was readily available in the form of a tea event! (you were missed Sil!)
It was amazing, I quite enjoyed it. So the event is free, but they wanted people to sign up for the “tea of the month” club, each of them a pu-erh. $15 for a 100g cake, including shipping. Not bad really. This will be one of the first things I do when I find a job.
The talk from Jeff was inspiring as well. He spoke about the people of Yunnan and about how the first tea of the month, he had trouble acquiring it, since the village people make only enough to sustain the village and send as occasional gifts.
There were pictures of said villagers available for purchase as well. Masterful, soul peering pictures that made me want to take them all home.
Anyhow, I am off to bed after a day that was longer than the Nile. Night all!

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
