drank Royal Courtesan by Zhi Tea
155 tasting notes

This may be the best tea I’ve had ever. I first tasted it at Zhi during Eat Local week. A nice, extremely knowledgeable guy was steeping various teas. On the first steeping the aroma was sweet and floral. Tasting this tea after the first smell was a little surprising, it was more substantial and earthier than I thought it would be. Multiple steepings didn’t disappoint. I took home two ounces that day and this continues to be my “go-to” tea when I’m looking for “the cup that cheers” – that phrase was invented for this tea.

Black/red Chinese teas, pu-erh and oolong hold the keys to my heart.

I don’t care much for flavored teas, especially the fruity varieties. My exceptions are chai and Earl Grey, and apparently now vanilla. Not much love for lapsang souchong either.

I sit squarely on fence with green and white teas.

If I end up in hell, my punishment will be to drink rooibos.
