This is like the mullet of teas. But instead of “business in front, party in the back”, it’s “Assam at the beginning, Ceylon at the end.” Assam’s malt, cardboard and a hint of honey show up while it is hot, a milder Ceylon woodiness and lighter body (and something fairly rye-like) shows up as it inches closer to room temperature.

Needless to say, though, this is both tastier and more stylish than a mullet.

Mullet. LOL!

I know, I’m a dork! I will confess that I was a bit groggy while trying to figure the best way to explain how it seemed like two different teas but still worked and my brain got stuck on the mullet. Not that a mullet is something that really works or is something to aspire to, but I am from the southern US, so I’ve seen more than my fair share of them.

In Denmark they tend to be called either Bundesliga-hair or Swede-hair. :p

Okay, Swede-hair makes me giggle a lot, mostly because I’m picturing a Swedish guy I knew in Japan with a mullet. It’s all sorts of wrong.

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.


1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
