The best tea is not necessarily all that good.

A precise cup of tea tastes good, more or less.

Because it is being drunk by a more-or-less tea drinker. Toci

If you meet a tea master on the road buy him a cup of coffee.

The pot can be full or empty. If you like the left over scent in a
cup, the pot is better.

Sort of related: I watched a cool documentary about tea and the one
Chinese tea master made a comment that basically said the smell in the
brewing vessel might not be very pleasant but the aroma of the brewed
tea/cup should be. This means that the brewing was done correctly and
the less pleasant aspects were left behind.

I've thought about that at times and I can say that there are some
brewed oolong leaves (greener, or highly fired greener oolongs) that
smell terrible while the resultant tea is very beautiful and has none
of the taste or aroma of the leaf itself.

The things my Gyokuro's say would cause a lesser tea to shrivel up
and die. I have to console my sencha daily. Puerh is a right bully
though and I've broken up quite a few scuffles with the Keemun, just
because their older and bigger...

In all honesty the original sentiment is true, very often one tea will
change my opinion of another one way or the other sometimes long after
the fact.

I tell people I use a divining rod to pick my teas. I get a double
take when I tell this to other tea drinkers. There is some mysterious
process that helps me pick. Now Im in the process of evaluating the
taste of puer plaques. I have no basis except for what I already know
about puer and tea taste in general. I suspect the same 'glue' used
in a tea blossom is used in a plaque. I cant seem to taste or see it.
