When the samples arrived, I started a spreadsheet that sorts by $/g and included brief tasting notes. I gave this one good marks, but at the time I was more disciplined and would only drink one tea at a time, focusing on it. These days I have so many half-finished teas lying around in brewing vessels, I will often get to steep 7 or 8 and then while waiting for the longer steeps, finish up the overnight kill steeps of other teas, if that makes sense. So like, over the course of a day, steeps 1-3 a raw, the penultimate steep of a ripe, steep 4 of the raw, steeps 7-8 of a black, the final steep of the raw, steeps 5-7 of the raw, the kill steep of the black, an experimental steep or two of the dead ripe, steeps 8-10 of the raw. Taken in this massively chaotic manner, Daydream loses much of its charm. So if you get this tea, maybe give it your full attention.

I’ll not adore every popular tea. Nor shall I always prepare it skillfully enough to do it justice and understand it before the sample is gone. Also, my search is for teas that are delicious now. I don’t know yet what will age well.
