Hit the wrong button and it all goes ::poof::. Sigh.

This is the last bit of leaf I have for this tea so I thought I’d do it in the gaiwan to hopefully help this tea go out with a bang.

I think it worked.

The smell is delicious – exotic and fruity with a rich and homey scent to it. And the taste? Yum. I’m not exactly sure what the water temp was (but I’m guessing a bit hotter than normal) but either that or the use of the gaiwan has really brought out the richness in this tea. Normally the fruity taste dominates but today, it’s the buttery caramel sort of flavor (like kettle corn) that takes top billing. The fruity is still there but as a bit more of a supporting actor.

This cup is a perfect ‘last’ cup for this tea. Hopefully the wonder will carry through a few more steeps but even if it doesn’t, this tea is leaving my pantry on a great note.

Did you click “I’ll write something later” by accident? Either way, we’ll add a little confirmation thingy to make it harder to accidentally close the form after you’ve written something. Sorry!

No, I clicked my Google bookmark button and the stupid thing loaded in the same tab and when I clicked back, it was gone. ::pout:: Full on user error.

No worries, I’ve done that with blog posts and it makes me want to cry :’(

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.
