My grading criteria for tea is as follows:
90-100: Phenomenal tea right here. Drinking this is just a wonderful treat.
85-89: Extremely good tea but it’s just missing that one thing to make it exceptional.
80-84: Very good tea. May not be the best, but it certainly is excellent for the times that you crave them.
70-79: Good tea. The types of teas that have that one characteristic to them that makes it worthwhile despite lacking in all the other areas
60-69: Average tea. Doesn’t excel at anything but isn’t’ horrible in anything either.
40-59: Below average tea. I can see how someone else would like this tea but I definitely don’t like it. Could be an issue with my brewing or just my taste in general. If it’s a brewing issue, rating will be adjusted accordingly.
0-39: How is this tea. Better beverages could be made by grabbing a clump of dead grass from my front lawn.
