drank Royal Garland by Samovar
911 tasting notes

Such a pretty cup from beginning to end. The leaves are long, fuzzy and colorful – really pretty. The liquid pours out as a crystal clear light gold. The smell is gorgeous with notes that are simultaneously starchy/bread/chewy and sweet/light/fruity/honeyed. And after it cools just a minute or so, the taste is just… ahh! Grilled plantains drizzled in honey… with honeysuckle or plumeria around to add a high, floral sweetness. Every sip is like a mini tropical vacation.

Chewy, bready, honeyed?? Sounds yum. Must have! :)

I enjoyed a delicious sample of this a while back. I just wish Samovar’s stuff wasn’t so expensive, otherwise I’d order more.

Great review. I had a few cups of this tonight, it really is good stuff… I’d make a note on it, I’m just in a really lazy mood today.

AND BOOOOO, the Blues lost last night :( …. Andy Mac got a point though, and the overall game was fun!

It is seriously good. And Samovar’s stuff is a bit expensive but considering their quality, I figure it is well worth it.
Garrett, yeah, that game was not fun at the end. I found myself hoping that they were giving out free beer with the free food. On the plus side, I did have time to switch over to the Ducks and see Selanne hit 600 goals. Go Teemu!

Fresh bread tea … hmm … now there’s a flavor suggestion …

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.
