911 tasting notes

Lena’s logging of this one earlier today reminded me I hadn’t had it in a while. So I’m having some.

I’m getting a bit Darjeeling flavor from it – that muscatel-fruity, nutty taste – but a little smoother and lighter than the Darjeelings I’ve had in more recent memory. I’m pretty sure I got a Darjeeling read from it before but I’m not sure if it was this strong. Perhaps because I steeped it at a lower temp? (That’s what the zojirushi was set on, so I just went with it instead of waiting for it to reboil even though that really doesn’t take long).

Also, something smells like lavender chocolate (and it isn’t me) and it’s driving me nuts! I keep thinking it is this tea but it isn’t. Very odd.

Phantom lavender chocolate? How random!

I know! It so wasn’t tea related but I smelled it ALL night in the living room! Not cool!

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.
