Thank you Sil for sharing but this was nothing special. Smooth. Fine. Meh. Am I not a golden Yunnan fan? I’m starting to think that’s just not my fave.

drank Panettone Cake by Dessert by Deb

This is tasting very astringent and raisin-y and I’m wondering if that was just user error so holding off on rating.

drank Blackberry Dumpling by 52teas
6355 tasting notes

This is one of my oldest teas and even though I love 52 Teas blackberry teas, I just never reached for this. So it sat unopened and when I finally opened it up, I am saddened to find the flavour has thoroughly deteriorated with age. The slightest berry jam note with a dash of cinnamon, a flavour that I know is a fraction of what this was before I neglected it. So this is a reflection of me, not the tea and also a PSA to at least try your teas before it’s too late!

Thanks Roswell Strange for sending this my way! Age hasn’t been kind here and so this tastes like not much. Touch of grass maybe but nothing else

Thank you Sil for sharing this one. I find with black teas, they’re either astringent or too brisk and I don’t like them, they’re run of the mill or they stand out as amazing. This is sort of that middle of the road one for me. Malt and sweet and nice but nothing stands out as impressive or amazing. Nice to try but also one I’m fine having that single sample of.

Bio

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.

Tea Ratings Guide (as of December 10, 2017)
90-100 Teas I NEED on hand at all times
80-89 Teas I want to keep around for a cup every now and then
70-79 Teas I am glad I have around and can experiment with but probably don’t need more than what’s in my cupboard
60-69 Teas I would not turn down a cup of from a friend but that would probably be enough
50-59 Teas I can see why someone would enjoy but are not for me
Under 50 Teas I really did not like and most likely got dumped
