drank Ancient Yellow Buds by Rishi Tea
911 tasting notes

After the crazy, interruptive, picky-people-filled day I had today, I wanted – no, I needed something good. Something sweet and light yet solid and grounded. Comforting. I was itching for some Downy Sprout but since I am out, I grabbed this tea. Fantastic tea was needed so urgently, I was even too impatient to wait until the water hit 175°, so I did 180° and just kept the teapot lid off.

This gave me exactly what I was looking for – dark, rich, sweet but substantial. Seriously awesome. I think I could drown in this tea and die happy. It’s only two more points but the serious awesomeness of this tea demands that I give it a 100.

If Auggy works for Rishi, I think takgoti secretly works for Samovar =P. Teaplz secretly works for Golden Moon =]

Auggy

Nope, it’s just a good tea. Honestly, I’ve never been all that impressed by Rishi’s stuff. This one is just awesome, though. Ancient Emerald Lily is good too but this one is seriously great.

takgoti

It’s so good. So very good. I’ll be ordering more for sure.

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.
