Another share from TeaEqualsBliss – thank you!

The smell while brewing makes me think of barley. The pieces are tiny – BP I’m guessing stands for broken pekoe? – so I did a short steep time. I also added sugar and half & half out of habit. Oops. Oh well.

The taste is pretty surprising. Because the pieces are so small, I anticipated something with a bit of an edge, and maybe it does have it and the additives are hiding it, but it doesn’t seem like it at all. It’s odd though because the taste is both mild and bold. Thin, maybe? But flavorful? Something. And I can’t quite peg the taste – it doesn’t seem fruity or malty. It seems more grain-like. Whatever it is, it makes it fairly unique – and pretty tasty!

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.
