Okay, okay, okay. I would love to review. I attempted one in the O-Cha thread. Problem is I lack appropriate descriptions that it seems other tea experts use. My descriptions feel pretty back-woods when I compare them to others here. I love to read really well thought out reviews and read many. I also have researched to find out appropriate descriptions of particular teas. Is there a guide for this? An encyclopedia? Anything to help the new babies here not appear completely comical? :cry:

I would hate to see everyone lose their individuality in order to conform to rigid standards. Often what is lacking in vocabulary is more than made up in other attributes and a TCer's personality. :mrgreen:

I would prescribe practice, lots of tasting and taking notes that can form the basis of a review later.

A place like TC is a great place to learn ... like for 5 years before TC, I had no idea how to describe the differences in astringency and bitter. Umami, grassy, veggie, etc.

But the best part, practice is so enjoyable when it comes to tasting tea.

Often, when I sit down to drink tea with my wife, our descriptions and experience of the same tea is so different that I wonder if anything more than 'I like this' or 'I don't like this' matters.

When I go to drink tea at the local tea seller, the tea master never describes the tea. The experience itself is the main thing, not the words used to convey 'meaning'.
