76
drank Yunnan Jig by Adagio Teas
911 tasting notes

The smell of this made one of my coworkers state, “That’s a lot better than what I get out of a Lipton bag.” You know it. Maybe one day they will be tempted enough to take me up on my offer of making them a cup.

This is sweet in a way that reminds me of cane syrup, a little earthy, brisk and fuller bodied than the Yunnan Gold I’ve had. It also leaves a pleasant peppery tingle on my tongue after I swallow. I was prepared for the more breakfast-like intensity of this tea this time so I’m appreciating it more and have upped the rating a little. This would really make a fantastic morning tea I think, and one that I would hope could stand up to a little doctoring because that’s just how I roll with my morning teas.

Haha, it’s like how I offered my coworker a bunch of tea leaves and now he won’t drink his twinnings because he knows the quality isn’t up to par.

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.
