I could really get in to having stouter Yunnans for my first-thing-in-the-morning tea. Between this and Andrews & Dunham’s Yunnan, I’m finding that I love having a bold, slightly aggressive but still surprisingly smooth tea first thing in the morning. This one is probably a hair less growly than the Tiger but it has a slightly sweeter, fuller taste that makes it quite nummy. No milk or sugar is needed though it stands up to it very well. Quite a nice way to start the day – stout enough (and with enough caffeine) to give me a good wake up but smooth enough that I don’t need to add anything to it to make it friendly. I imagine it is somewhat similar to starting the day with an expensively smooth coffee.

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.
