I gave up alcohol in 2013. When my taste buds came back I discovered tea.

75+ I’ll seek this out again.
50+ I enjoyed this.
25+ Not for me but may be for some. I’ll take a cup if I’m your guest.
0+ I’ll politely decline if you brew this.

I brew gongfu style – lotsa tea, brief brew, then into a sharing cup. It really changed tea for me after not quite “getting it” from western style brewing.
