Backlogging from the weekend in Louisiana.
This tea has officially become a required vacation staple. Uncontrollable brewing parameters? Pshaw! This tea is forgiving enough to take it! Bad tasting water? No problem! This is strong enough to cover it up and still taste delightful. This tea is a hero in my book. ♥

Don’t care for it, but I can see L/S covering up the nastiest hotel coffee-pot water! Good call for travel.

This is one of my absolute favorites too. the aroma clears a room in my house though, my family can’t stand it :p

gmathis, Well, I used tap water but it was still pretty nasty tasting water. This did cover it up nicely though!
HorseNcl, This is one of my favorite smokies, too. Fortunately I’m starting to change the husband’s mind about smoky teas so he doesn’t make brisket comments near as often now. He had the second steep of this one (nasty hotel water and all) and didn’t even ask for sugar! :)

I love this tea because it is so forgiving with you temperature and brewing.

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.
