Default taste changing ... evolving ;)

while in the past year i haven't drank a huge amount/variety of tea, i
just noticed drinking 3 bottled teas (unsweetened) that they have
different tastes...-not wow this is better than loose leaf- but
changes in between them that i did not notice 1-1.5years ago when they
all seemed the same (and i had tried hard to see a difference!).

interesting...

just wanted to share

Its more experience than your tastebuds. Every tea taste different
enough to leave an impression. The impressions add up leading to
discerning taste. You get centered just making a pot. How the tea
got to the cup is a memory in itself adding to the taste. I can
almost remember where I bought every tea on the shelf or when the
package arrived from China. I'm a big fan of the penny/gram Indian
teas but that price has just about disappeared.

It is a neat experience once that starts to happen and you are
cognizant of it. The other neat effect is once you have refined your
palate/tastes even more and you find yourself "regressing" back to
lesser quality teas for specific tastes and flavors.

I recently began tea drinking with a bias against fermented teas, for
health reasons, but now accept that, in moderation, an oolong is a
tasty alternative.
