6.1/90/212. not sure if I’m imagining things, but it seems much better than when I had it a few months ago at work. what I remember then was kind of the dry sharp vegetal notes along with the celery notes that people seem to denote as mineral in other places, and it being more green in taste. those notes are still there, but more complex now — integrated with chocolate, ginger, fruit and with aromas of plum and bready roastiness in gaiwan lid. a sugar-y bright and slightly floral sweetness at the end of taste. mugged after a few steeps bc still not the kind of tea i’d reach for (light oolongs usually just sit and sit…), but really quite decent. wonder if water, attention, or few months of rest made the difference.

Just a chronicle of a stranger’s tea journey. Keeping old notes up to see progression, but no longer really believe in all of them. Trying to learn!!

As of 4/21/21, I will no longer assign numerical ratings to a tea unless it is terrible enough to warrant one. There are a fair amount of solid teas out there, and reading mildly subjective reviews from others > very subjective numerical rating that gets skewed by Steepster’s calculating system anyway.
