210 Degrees F, Gongfu, 20 sec infusions + 5

A very yummy Duck Shit. I was pushing infusions a bit because it felt a little weak. One of my favorite Oolongs. This one is very tasty and I enjoy the whole session very much but always find myself wanting a couple more infusions than the tea wants to give me. That could be because the tea is 1.5 years old. I get about 6 infusions. 9/10 Highly recommend

I like tea a lot. I tend to stick to pure teas that are unflavored and I’m usually having a gongfu session. I find that writing up reviews with tasting notes makes my tea drinking experience much more enjoyable and forces me to slow down and appreciate the experience more.

95 + Absolutely fantastic, usually a special treat tea.

90 – 95 Outstanding, probably a tea that I will keep on hand all the time.

85 – 90 Very good tea that I would be very happy to drink daily. Would Re-order.

80 – 85 Pretty good tea that I enjoyed drinking. Probably wouldn’t re-order.

75 – 80 Not great, I can drink it but It’s not something I would reorder.

70 – 75 Bad, Barely drinkable.

0 – 70 Is this even tea?
