drank Hawaii-Grown Oolong by Samovar
911 tasting notes

It took me a bit of searching to finally figure out/find what plant it is that this tea reminds me of. But it is shampoo ginger: http://bit.ly/9ldoxp This plant was all over Maui when I was there, particularly on this day trip we took. So this tea reminds me of that trip. I sniff and sip and think of rough roads, waterfalls and tropical lushness.

Not that I need another reason to want to go to Hawaii, but sigh. 30 inches of snow, and sigh again. I think I’m going to build an igloo tomorrow. [No, seriously.]

I would say Hawaii way wins over igloos, but I think most places do… well, and Hawaii just wins.

Sand igloos anyone?

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.
