I think I’m getting sick. Any time I tilt my head the slightest bit, the room starts spinning. So I’m either getting sick or have been hitting the bottle quite heavily and forgetting about it. Option two is not as unlikely as one might think as I’m forgetting all sorts of things today. Such as how long I steeped this for. 4 minutes? 5? I don’t recall and the timer went off less than a minute ago.

Anyway, whatever I did to it worked out well. I still thinks this taste like a mild Chinese green. It’s got the honey taste that seems fairly standard but only a tiny little hint of the brine that I seem to always get. I’m drinking it from the same cup as my earlier steeps of Ryokucha, but I rinsed and wiped the cup out good so the sweet, grassy green hints I’m getting are from this tea, not leftover from the Ryokucha.

I hope you are not getting sick or if you are that you will soon be better.

Thanks! I keep sucking down the tea in hopes that whatever is going on will stop. Even if the tea doesn’t help in the end, it still makes me happy. :)

Not gonna lie, I’d have thrown up by now if I were you. I don’t get motion sick like that often [or whatever it is…ear fluid causing your ear hairs to do strange things to your brain – I’m very technical], but when I do it hits me like a linebacker. Stay strong! Drink more tea! Hope you’re better soon!

I suppose it’s a good thing I like rollercoasters because that’s what this feeling remind me off. Wheeeee!

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.
