Today is a sad, sad day. I’ve had to decupboard this beauty of a tea. (Much thanks again to Angrboda for the share.) Is it an Assam? Or a Yunnan? Has cocoa been sprinkled on this? And where is that hint of roasty coming from? And is there smoky, too? Surely there isn’t any Lapsang in this…

No, it’s just a delightful tea with MPD. But that’s why I love it. That and the fact that no matter which personality shows up in my sip, I know it will always be smooth and sweet and so tasty. It will be missed. So let’s all take a moment of silence to morn for my cupboard, which is now lacking this tea.

Thank you. Now, in other news, I just bought plane tickets to go to Hawaii so I suppose this day isn’t a total loss, yeah?

It’s sooooo tasty! Last time I checked TeaSpring, though, they were out. Boo! …and it looks like they still are. Sigh. I’m sure my first TeaSpring order will happen right after this one comes back in stock.

Wooo, Hawaii!! Are you going to visit Eva while you’re there?

Auggy

I wish! Sadly, we’ll be on a different island. I do have a secret hope of finding some Makai black at a local store drastically on sale though. :)

Angrboda

You know what this means? All of it, every single leaf is GONE! O.o

I think I’m gonna cry…

There is no sadly when it comes to Hawaiian islands! It’s been a long time since I was there but I’ve been to four islands and each one was awesome in its own way.

LENA

It’s sad…but I would happily decupboard any of my teas for a trip to Hawaii. :) Hope you have a blast!!!

Auggy

Angrboda – That is just. Wrong. So wrong. There needs to be more of this tea!
Morgana – Too true – any Hawaiian island is a good thing, tea or not! It’s only been in the past few years that I’ve been anywhere other than Oahu but I’ve enjoyed them all.
Lena – Thanks! I wonder if the husband will let me work some kind of deal – for every X number of teas I decupboard, I get a tropical vacation.

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.
