Since I’m finding that I like tea with not-quite-boiling water, I’m trying to be a bit more careful at work. This time, I stopped the kettle right as the water started to boil, poured the water into my empty cup, then poured the water into my ingenuiTEA. It seems to have helped though I could probably go down temp-wise just a hint more. There is no bitterness to the Darjeeling so that’s good. And actually, as my cup cools this is back to being a smooth but bright, fairly well balanced, tea-tasting tea. Another few seconds before I poured the water over the leaves might have helped calm it more but it’s not necessary for me to enjoy this cup. So yep, water just cooled off from a boil is great for this tea.

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.
