Happy New Year! Okay, okay. I’m a bit late on that but today is the first day I’ve had to work since 2010 began so the new year officially became… well, official to me today.

I’m feeling a bit conflicted today. There’s good and bad going on with life, but fortunately the bad isn’t all that bad. I mean, it’s insanely cold outside but at least it isn’t snowing. I was running late this morning but at least I wasn’t running absurdly late (though it was close). On the full-on plus side, my favoritest podcast ever is back after over a year of being off the air, so booyah. But on the bad-but-could-be-worse side, I’m almost out of this tea. But I’ve got enough for one, maybe two more cups after today. And that is sad (but at least I didn’t run out of it today).

I love this tea. It’s overwhelming taste/feel is that of bake-y delight. But I came to the realization today that it wasn’t just plain ole bake-y. It was stone-baked bake-y. It’s like the difference between a pizza and a stone-baked pizza. Except for, you know, the tomato sauce. And the cheese. And the crust. So basically it just… the bake-y bit. But a good quality, comforting bake-y bit that made me think warm and toasty thoughts. Not a frou-frou, delicate little cookie bake-y. Tough bake-y. A hearty bake-y. A manly bake-y. Don’t worry, that’s a good thing.

And a good tea. Mmm. Bake-y.

Auggy, what’s your favorite podcast?

And this review made me LAUGH. Manly bake-y almost seems like an oxymoron. I picture the Brawny man in an apron, putting cookies in the oven and smiling with that smarmy smile of his!

Ever watched The Emperor’s New Groove? Manly bake-y is so Kronk. :D

@teaplz, Japundit/Japan Talk podcast. It’s news (usually odd) from Japan broken up by usually 3 more indie-group type songs. It’s fun!
@Angrboda, I’m not sure how I feel about that but every time I think of it, it makes me laugh! :)

@Auggy I’m gonna have some of this today now. I do like the bake-y.

@Angrboda Oh god, yes. HAHAHAHA!

Hahah, me too! First day back at work. I was not told we had off last week so I went into an empty office =(

Baking delight sounds great, but what is the base? Tea from India, darjeeling or Assam. My guess Assam?

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.
