I used Oolong Owl’s tea spreadsheet today and cataloged all my tea. I found the result to be interesting. I now know what I have. Over 230 teas. Which means only 50% have been entered into the cupboard.
Most bought category: Oolongs then blacks.
Least bought: Green and what I do have is old. Like these teas were once green, but now look grey old. These will be my next sipdown targets.
Dry leaf smells fruity and pretty fresh – coming out of the vacuum package from the tea club.
2 min 185F – way nuttier, more vegetal.
I’ve been drinking a daily drinker quality long jing at work – this has more oomph to it, even 2 years (2 years!?? according to the other reviews) out. There’s a sweet end note. I may have overleafed this tea a little, but I still have a cold and taste is off a bit.
Flavors: Nutty, Sweet, Vegetal
