Backlogging – this tea was great with a pinch of keemun from the Jasmine Pearl Tea Merchants. I used 2/3 vietnam black and 1/3 keemun. Now I know what to do with all my leftover keemun samples I don’t want to drink straight. :)

Amanda, do you see this post on The main Tasting Notes Page, or just on Amy’s page, or both? I am not seeing it on the main Tasting notes page (1:41 PM EST). Amy said she’s has been having issues with her posts.

OK…….now I see it on the main page, but It wasn’t there before. I read the Jun Jun Mei review on the main Tasting Notes page long before the Viet Lahn Black ever showed up on the main page-now it is listed before the Yunnan JJM review. Yet on her Tasting notes page, the Vietnam Black is listed as newer-that’s screwed up! ://

Yep, this wasn’t here for me earlier, and just popped up in between two posts I have already seen.

I like this tea pretty well straight, but I have some Keemun I could blend in for a change.

@ScottB- I liked this combo better than H&S Imperial breakfast which was a mix of assam and keemun. Still I agree, this tea is quite nice on its’ own.

Yeah I have a bunch that are out of chronological order, including this one, and when I posted my note earlier today it didn’t show up on my dashboard for an hour.

Amy-Well, it definitely sounds interesting.

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
