Hi, I’m MG. I’m a gal in my mid 20’s, recently graduated from college. I am an illustrator by trade but have other hobbies on the side such as jewellery making, writing, and video games.
I am a casual amateur in teas. I enjoy trying most things. My favourite teas are greens, whites, florals, and dessert teas. I have a sweet tooth which dictates many impulse purchases. I really, really love a mellow black tea with rose. Am currently on a quest to find a nice clean rose/ black tea that doesn’t have any other flavours added.
Teas I really am not a fan of would be overly sour/ smokey pu’erhs, wine-flavoured teas, teas with hot chili in them, and teas that involve star anise/ licorice. I enjoy lighter pu’erh or pu’erh blends but I feel that tea should not taste smokey. Ew. I love wine, I just think trying to drink it hot or combine it with tea is nasty. And as for anise, it’s just a flavour I have strongly disliked since childhood. I’ve tried to like it many times…just..no. If I detect the slightest hint of licorice in a non-medicinal tea, it loses major points or gets chucked.
My rating system:
95-100: A perfect favourite. Loving it and hoarding mass quantities to keep forever.
90-94: Favourite, I will crave it often and repurchase indefinitely.
80-89: Very good, I enjoy it a lot and will purchase.
70-79: Left a good impression and will probably keep some around.
60-69: Drinkable but probably won’t be repurchasing.
40-59: Fail. Did not enjoy, but finishable.
0-39: Somehow this tea managed to be truly awful. These teas are about as rare for me as the 95-100’s.
