Why do I keep forgetting about this tea?? WHY? Because it wasn’t old enough 2 months ago when I last had it, I had to let it get even older? Ugh. But it still tastes so yummy. Not as fresh, but it is still good tea.

I used a little over 5g for 6oz. Probably could have used a bit more. But it is sweet and butter and grassy and good. I really really need to get a different kyusu for use with some of senchas. They are so fine the clog my sasame filter making a second pour sooooo much slower. Keeping that in mind, I used my (now lidless) teapot which has an in-spout mesh filter (replacement pot coming soon). Much easier but there is just a little bit of flavor that seems to be lost with getting almost no leaf in my cup. But I know the second cup will be better this way so I’ll deal. And put a larger-filter kyusu on my wishlist. Which means I get to look at Artistic Nippon again. Bonus.

I really should once-over what I’ve got more often. I forget about teas often enough to annoy myself on occasion.

I tend to neglect my Japanese greens. Which is really the worst tea to neglect. I’m a bad tea-mom. Shame on me.

That’s why I like the Cupboard, it lets me keep track of all my teas and easily see how long it’s been since I’ve drank a cup of each of them. :)

Well, if I were smart, I would attempt to do that.

That’s it… I’m going to try that. I will borrow your smarts.

Jillian

Yes, bow before my wisdom! ;P

Auggy

Hehe – aye aye!

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.
