Brought this tea to my parents’ house for my morning Christmas tea. Mostly I wanted to have it from a teacup again to reaffirm my love of it after the mediocre showing it had in my travel tumbler.

In a teacup again, this tea is yummy. Bright, clear, smooth with a little Darjeeling-like citrus sparkle laid over top a more Yunnan-tasting base tea flavor. This is the first time the husband has had it and he’s a big fan, too, giving it a 5 out of 5 and saying that it is like a Darjeeling but with very little acidity or bitterness. Smooth and with good, full flavor.

This tea definitely is happier in an open cup and I’m happier with it there too.

I know that the nose is something like a thousand times more sensitive than the tongue in terms of what it can discern, but it still fascinates me how closely the two are linked together when we eat and drink things.

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.
