1759 tasting notes

Oh. My. Memories!!!!!!!
You ever try a new type of tea that you do enjoy, but at the time it doesn’t make a notable impression (that you know of) because well you can’t say where it falls on the bar, in quality, much less for your particular tastes… so you move on, trying all the other teas, but somehow without meaning to,or even realizing it, that original tea did make a notch on the bar,and welp, ya been subconsciously looking for a tea just like it??? only you can’t even recall which precise tea you’re comparing it to because that was so long ago. Heck, maybe you imagined it, after not being able to find it for all that time!
Well guess what? THIS WAS THAT TEA FOR ME!
I know my only other review here was during a time I wasn’t able to appreciate teas much, but I have been yearning for this particular hay, dry clay, malty, smooth cuppa for longer than I want to admit. Feeling kinda giddy now. Seriously. I’m so happy the Teaopia teas have come back into my life!!!!

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
