I steeped this one longer to see if I could make it into a morning tea instead of the afternoon-ish tea I accused it of being with a 3min steep. Mission accomplished. It’s still a very sweet Yunnan, making me think of figs and raisins, but the extra minute let this tea develop a little chewiness to the body and made it stand up nicely to a small dash of half & half and sugar. Now on the Yunnan spectrum (light and sweet Samovar’s Yunnan Golden Buds on one end, rough and tumble Andrews and Dunham’s Series 4 on the other), it definitely clocks in more on the A+D S4 side of things. It’s still not quite as heavy or as thick as the Tiger and there is a very strong fruity taste to it that does make it feel overall lighter than S4, but it is still quite tasty. However, as far as Yunnan morning teas go, I think Samovar’s Breakfast blend still has my vote since it seems overall smoother, even without additives and at a 4min steep.

I love comparison reviews….now if only I could find an alternative to my darlings Jackee and Thomas!

I know what you mean – I need to find replacements for them for after they are gone! Otherwise my pantry will be so empty. :(

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.
