drank Wild Sweet Orange by Tazo
1812 tasting notes

Working through the second half of the first two cup pot I’m not as sure about my feelings for this tea as I was when I began. When the tea first hits the tongue it does have a slightly heavy tone on the sides of the tongue, which is something that always characterized Bigelow’s Orange Spice for me, as well as something that I didn’t particularly care for in that tea. I’m glad this tea only releases tart notes on the back of the tongue, because tartness upon the drink first entering the mouth would have turned me off almost immediately. One bonus is that this tea has quite the pleasant aftertaste…

“I love trading tea and trying new teas. My favourites are oolong (mainly Chinese) and pu’erh.
Will gladly talk all day about tea.”

The above was my bio when I joined five years ago, and I felt it needed to be updated. I still love pu’erh, though I have begun to take preference toward cooked, shou. Oolongs are certainly still a go-to tea for me, but I have expanded my horizons to begin including greens and blacks based upon the weather and how I am feeling.

Still more than glad to talk about tea – anytime, anywhere, anyplace.
Additionally, if fountain pens, books, music, or computers are on the discussion list…

My ratings, this “personal enjoyment scale” about which I talk, are just that – based on how much I enjoyed the tea. I might have enjoyed it immensely, yet do not keep it stocked for various reasons. On the flip side, I have a few teas that are “good” but not “great,” which I keep stocked for various reasons.
