This is a tea I have a hard time defining. It’s sweet, rich, savory (in the green/raw way), and hearty. It’s comforting in a way that raw and ripe aren’t on their own, uniquely its own and greater than the sum of its parts. I find myself reaching for it not (just) because I can’t decide between ripe and raw, but because it satisfies in a unique way.

Flavors: Broth, Seaweed, Sweet

I enjoy Dian Hong mostly, but have been venturing further into puerh, and anxi and dancong. I tend to focus on daily drinkers and teas that do well grandpa/western as I don’t have the time or caffeine tolerance to gong fu frequently.

90 – 100: Fancy daily, special occasion, teas that I carefully ration.
80 – 89: Ideal daily drinker range, very good and/or hits an excellent cost:quality. Would reorder.
70 – 79: Not an absolute favorite tea but I would pick often, or hits a certain flavor profile I like. Might reorder.
60 – 69: Generally disfavorable, but not actively bad.
<59: something has gone terribly wrong.
