This tea tea was sortof a let down for me. I usually don’t read the reviews before I finish my tasting notes, but this one was so subtle I needed to cheat some!

On the first infusion I did get a soft creaminess, as well as some faint vegetal (bok choy?).

However the tea really never developed for me. That was it.

I would be up for trying teas from Tearroir again, but their prices certainly need to come down some. I would not describe this as “the best teas on earth”.

New Ranking System
Taste = 69
Representation = 75
Price = 52

Score = 69

blah blah blah, come on people, not every tea can be ranked 80+. Rant, rave; but honestly not every tea you drink can be ranked the same, otherwise you defeat the point of giving the grade!

So as other people have broken down their ranking systems, I am doing the same.

I’ve also decided to update my reviewing system. I’m going to be ranking across a 3 system scale on: taste, accurate representation, and price.

Taste = 0-100 (see old ranking)
Accurate Representation = 75 being average (how true it is to its style of production. So a Darjeeling that tastes like an Assam would rank lower)
Price = Percent difference of what I think the tea is worth


Old Ranking
90-100 = I’m quite happy to buy again
70-89 = Acceptable representation
50-69 = Wouldn’t order again
20-49 = Meh
10-19 = Average tea bag ranking
0-9 = Needed to brush my teeth immediately
