This week has been kind of rough so I just don’t have enough brain power left to do a strong review. But I’m still having new teas so I have to write something down. So I’ve decided to use Magnetic Poetry to write my review.

Translation:
It reminds me of Tea Etc’s Golden monkey, though it is more peppery and fruitier. It’s smooth and gentle with a great smell and aftertaste, both of which hang around once the cup is done (and the cup was gone pretty quickly).

I love your magnetic poetry tea review!

Auggy

Awww, thanks! The magnetic poetry was really very relaxing – good for a braindead me! Apparently tea + magnets = fun times. :)

Do I get to feel partially responsible for this awesomeness because I sent you the tea that inspired it? No? Probably not, eh? Well…I might anyway!

One million points for creativity!

sophistre, You may totally take credit! Not only did you send the new tea to me (and new tea pretty much requires me to write something about it because I can’t have new tea and not comment!) but without magnetic poetry, my review was going to end up something like, “sophistre sent me this tea. sophistre said it reminded her of Teas Etc’s Golden Monkey. sophistre is right. Go read sophistre’s review. The end.” Hehe!

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.
