The first steep is bold, smooth and stout – a great wake-up type tea (yes, it is 2pm but I do need to wake up). Honestly though, I’m looking forward to the 2nd and hopefully 3rd steep on this one. Last time, I was able to get some serious milkiness from those steeps so I’m hoping I’ll get them this time, too.

I threw a small tin of this into my Teas etc order last night – I’m glad I did!!! :)

I need a wake up too! I’m so drowsy at the moment!

gee all that tea and tired. Too crazy, so you much be right at 2000 soon. When you hit it….be sure to imagine virtual balloons falling from the ceiling and a big sign saying congratulations as a little present from me. :o)

JacquelineM, I picked up an ounce with my order and now I’m regretting I didn’t get a bigger package. It’s probably one of the most interesting and tasty Yunnans I’ve had. Though it does seem that the creamy taste comes in more at slightly below boiling.

And TEB, how on earth can you be drowsy? So much 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.
