Attempting to replicate this morning’s caramel chew flavor and texture. I’m a bit nervous. I forgot exactly how much my cup holds so I might have used a bit too much leaf, but I’m hoping that won’t make much difference since it was just half a gram….

I’m getting the same silky, rich taste. And letting it cool just a little… and now I’m getting that burnt sugar taste on the tail… I’m excited. Letting it cool just a little more. Oooh, now that burnt sugar taste is melding to a smooth caramel. It’s not quite the sucking-on-a-caramel-chew from this morning but we are going in the right direction……. And there it is. Oh yeah. That beautiful heavy satin feeling on my tongue, the sweetness, the drips of caramel.

Three cheers for takgoti for figuring this one out. Lower temp and a chance to cool a bit makes this Keemun… beautiful. Even the husband can taste it and that’s huge!

Bumping the rating accordingly. Because really. It’s CARAMEL!

Want! I wish they would reprise this. I’m jealous of everyone who managed to grab a tin of this!

Actually, 58 sets remain so there is still a chance! http://damnfinetea.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2&products_id=5 I’m actually going to have reorder before they sell out. Series 2 is love.

I’m watching it! I’m going to order when it gets low. All because of your damn caramel posts Auggy. It’s why I tried Series 1, which I don’t regret one bit. It was reissued while I was debating on trying Series 2. My anal desire to read in books in series order kicked in so I ordered. Being pretty new to loose tea drinking, these are probably the nicest teas I’ve had yet. I was going somewhere with this but I’ve forgotten where. Anyways, thank Auggy. Good tea has come to me because of you.

This sounds completely divine. I really don’t have a crazy sweet tooth, but man, your descriptions are totally mouth-watering.

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.
