I’ve been trying to give this tea the benefit of the doubt, but it keeps leaving me with something to be desired.

Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy it… it’s just.. missing a key element. Not that the tea is bad, maybe it’s just not my preferred oolong. It’s my first shui xian. I do love Wuyi oolongs though.
I’m on my 3rd steep from leaves I used last night. I am finding the waffle cone flavours.. and almost a vanilla custard oddly enough.
Still not absolutely blown away though.. I don’t know why.

(oh yeah.. Steeping parameters: 10s, 206˚F, ~5g, 5oz… increase time 1s each sequential steep.)

I am very excited to delve into as many different types of tea as possible… so this should be interesting. I am really looking forwards to tasting all the wide array of flavours that can come from pure tea leaves.

Currently, I am having a love affair with oolongs. Mostly green, though I am stretching out into more oxidized oolongs. Black teas are also in my love fest as they can be so surprising sometimes (I used to drink bagged red rose x.x)
I would really love to get to know green tea a lot more and white tea.. all tea to be honest. I want to know them all.

Tea rating system:

0-50: Do people actually enjoy this?
50-60: Slight improvement, not recommendable.
60-70: Alright, though easily forgettable.
70-80: Good flavour, though not a ‘go to’ tea.
80-90: Great tea – complex and memorable.
90-100: Extremely delicious and complex teas that leave me craving more.

On top of tea, I have a love for music. Generally all music, though I am partial to indie rock/folk/pop/electronic. Follow me if you also enjoy indie music and would like to trade some artists!

I’m always open to new tea and music suggestions. Happy tea drinking to you all.
