I’ve had the rest of this sample just sitting around and dangit! I need to get rid of some of my drips and drabs again (still). So off we go!

Second verse, pretty much same as the first. I kind of love Adagio’s Gunpowder but haven’t really found another one I’d consider buying in large(ish) quantity. This one is definitely smokier than Adagios. It’s making me think of wet cigarette ash. It’s a bit unpleasant at the beginning but I’m getting used to it. But yeah, not for me. I’m actually dropping the rating a bit because I’ve had a squidge more experience with Gunpowders now. Go me.

um.. wet cigarette ash.. yeah that explains the rating. lol

I’m super-happy you really liked Adagio’s Gunpowder, as it was a winner for me! This one, to me, tasted like a cross between Jade Fire and Adagio’s Gunpowder.

I think I would have been okay with it if it had reminded me of Jade Fire. I can deal with mineral-y better than this wet ash thing. But yeah, Adagio wins on the Gunpowder thing for sure!

I just recieved 6oz of Adagio’s Gunpowder.. I think this stuff will last me an eternity

6oz? Wow! I’m finding that I’m hesitant to buy anything more than 2oz of a tea at a time, but that’s because I seem to have SO MUCH TEA! (It’s just an illusion, though. Really.)

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.
