drank Lemon Yunnan by Samovar
911 tasting notes

I enjoy how the smooth, earthy, almost cocoa-y Yunnan contrasts with the fresh, clean, slightly tart (but not really) lemon. It’s really delightful. I find it a very relaxing tea – smooth and silky enough to make me release some tension, but the lemongrass gives it a nice fresh taste that makes me feel calmly alert instead of ready to take a nap. I still maintain what I said in my previous tasting note that this tea is very much not a normal type flavor for me – I’m not one for putting lemon in my tea. But the flavors work together so wonderfully that it really is enjoyable to sip on. It brings me subtle joy.

Chocolate and lemongrass is a combination that I would have never thought of, but I can kind of see that working!

It’s really a surprising tea but this just works so well together (I have to give credit to Samovar’s blending skills here, too, because they seem to really know how to pair flavors). It’s refreshing and comforting and just really nice. And surprising. Did I mention it is surprising?

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.
