drank Zhu Ke Rou Gui by Old Ways Tea
255 tasting notes

I don’t think OWT sells this exact RG anymore, which is kind of a shame. I went back to my email and it was 15.80 for the pack, but the link is broken. the two up on the site are slightly cheaper, and different packaging.

6/90. slight floral, lingers slightly on tip of tongue. sweet and sugary throughout, some bread, honey, spiced, and woody metallic notes, with some slight bitterness. Didn’t catch the mineral/celery note until 4th steep. mugged after fifth. I had this in the morning and felt somewhat noticeably happier than usual. No one gets oolongs as a bang for the buck (hard to say whether I’d repurchase given budgeting; maybe antidepressants are cheaper?? /s), but I’ve been on an oolong kick and enjoyed this.

mugged remaining 2 ish grams in a Yeti rambler and it was decent. Still somewhat uplifting. Overall taste was muddled in the yeti, but I liked it

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.
