Sipdown no. 1 of March 2019 (no. 36 of 2019 total, no. 524 grand total). A sample.
I am in a difficult position with black teas. I don’t currently have any that I’ve rated any lower than 79, which is a very solid rating.
So I’m into the great tea sipdown territory, and that is both good and bad. Good, for obvious reasons. Bad because some of the teas I’ll be sipping down, like this one, are really lovely and no longer available.
This is one of those. It tastes the same as it did when I broke open the packet a year ago — so I don’t have anything to add to my initial note. Other than that it is another reason I’m sorry ATR is no longer around.
At some point I’ll have to sip down the rest of my Brioche sample, and then I’ll REALLY be sad.
