This actually seems a little sweeter than I remember. I’m not sure if that is from my decreased sense of smell or if I was remembering it wrong. Still quite bold and super-smoky though. That certainly hasn’t changed.

Maybe you’re experiencing the same sort of ‘omg-sugar???’ thing that I had the other day. It was seriously weird, but it was rather nice.

I did think of your recent log when I tasted the sweetness! It was unexpected but I liked it. I think GM has a sweeter LS and I did like that a lot.

I’ve decided that I rather like how inconsistent I’m finding it to be lately. It’s like familiar and well-known and yet not boring at the same time. It’s nice-inconsistent rather than annoying-inconsistent. Keeps it interesting. :)

Haha – I can see that! Especially since lapsang souchong has a distinctive enough taste that even if the details change, it’s still the same basic tea experience.

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.
