106 tasting notes

~6.5g to 100ml water, preheated and steeped at 205F.

This was a very easy going tea, starting off sweet and just a little bit smokey. The smoke fades into a surprising floral note towards the middle, but comes back a little stronger towards the end although not too much so (I don’t really like smoke in tea, but didn’t find it to be unpleasant in this). There is some lingering sweetness afterward, but it’s a pretty soft sweet throughout. Not a lot of body or mouthfeel and I would say a pretty neutral caffeine buzz, but pleasant overall.

Flavors: Floral, Smoke, Sweet

205 °F / 96 °C 6 g 3 OZ / 100 ML

Favorite Tea Type: Darker oolong and sheng puerh

Rating Scale:

90-100: Amazing. Will buy and keep on hand all the time if finances and circumstances allow.

80-89: Strong argument for keeping it around all the time, even more than the prospect of trying more new tea. It’s that good.

70-79: Pretty solid. Glad I tried it, several factors that were unique or that I highly enjoyed.

60-69: Nothing that stands out for the most part, but with a quality or two that speaks to me.

50-59: Fairly run of the mill, pleasant but not much more to be said.

40-49: Something here is off putting in an otherwise decent tea.

30-39: There are a few things wrong with this tea. I did not enjoy.

20-29: Disliked this, could maybe see something, some redeeming quality in it others might find worth drinking without spitting back out.

10-19: Begin to question whether any tea is actually, in fact, better than no tea.

0-9: This causes actual food poisoning.
