One more sample gone now – yay!

But that’s pretty much the only good thing about this tea. It tastes flat and like it’s the water used to boil some edamame or something. Maybe it is because this was stored in a plastic bag (yes, I know, shame on me) or because it is pretty old (I’ve ignored it for a couple of months and I don’t think it was all that fresh when I got it). But whatever it is, this isn’t enjoyable to me.

I’ll probably finish this cup because it isn’t awful or anything, but I don’t think I’ll try a second steep. Ever.

From the description it almost sounds like it might be better iced, what say you?

One would hope but if a tea isn’t good hot, I don’t keep it around. Plus, I don’t think the taste of edamame water would be much better cold.

Jillian

You’ve got a point, eww.

I let the second half of the cup cool to around room temp. I could actually taste a little bit of sweet at the very beginning of the sip then but then it went back to full on edamame water.

I poured it out. Ah well!

how do you get the samplers of the Blends? I have only seen the 4oz $10 ones

I participated in the Signature Blend box pass that was going on on the Adagio boards. So I got lots of samples of lots of blends!

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.
