828 Tasting Notes


Blast! I have taken all my teas/tea supplies home from the office so I’ll have access to them over the summer. And then I realized I was out of paper filters. No great tea for me!

So I turned to my teabags. I really don’t have so many anymore, unless they’re for medicinal purposes, so I grabbed what I had and took them to work. This was the cup I started the day with.

It’s okay, but I’m glad to be purchasing some more paper filters tonight!

I’m starting my day with this, and it’s a lovely change of pace. I love genmaichas, and there are days where nothing else will do. This is one of those days!

Nothing says spring to me like peach tea. The weather’s warming up, so I made a cup of this decaf take on it. For me, peach tea is more about the peach than the tea, so this is a good cup. Now if only I had some ice around here….


This does sound like it’d be great iced!

First cup of the day! And it’s a good one. It’s not as good, though, as the one I had at my house on the weekend. I’m blaming the water at work. I’m tempted to resteep the leaves, but suspect I’d be disappointed.

I’ve been into tea, at some level, since college with a first tin of loose tea brought back by my parents from Oxford. My love of tea increased with a visit to Boston and a chance cup at Tealuxe. Since then I’ve only gotten more interested in tea and have developed more of an appreciation for it.

100: a perfect cuppa. these are the teas I’ll keep in my cupboard and tend to be one per type of tea.

90-99: will definitely get more of this tea

80-89: likely to get more and perhaps it will become a favorite with time

70-79: very good, depending on my mood or the season

60-69: wouldn’t actively try to get this tea, but also wouldn’t avoid it in a tea shop or restaurant

50-59: run-of-the-mill tea for me

40-49: decent, would hit the spot in some moods, but probably wouldn’t purchase it for my cupboard

30-39: okay, will try again, maybe

20-29: meh. I’d try this tea again if no other were available

10-19: drinkable, but a forced cup

0-9: didn’t even finish the cup
