86

Yeah, I just got pooped on by a cat. I need some medicinal tea. Actually, the past couple of weeks have been kind of not great (though not to the just-got-pooped-on level, mind you) so even though I’ve been kind of quiet, I have been doctoring my pour, abused psyche with tea regularly. But yeah, the pooping? This sort of raises it to a whole new level. So I thought I’d try a whole new tea.

Well, ‘new’ tea… it’s actually really old. I can’t believe I’ve ignored my few remaining Tea from Taiwan samples for so long. I tell myself that they are vacuum-sealed so it’s really not a bad thing if I take months to drink them. I may or may not be lying to myself with that statement, but this tea doesn’t seem to have minded being tucked into my pantry for so long. It’s rich, floral and pretty darn intense. Sweet but not light and delicate. There is a nice floral tone to it, but the richness and intense flavor it has makes the sweetness more like a hard candy sweet, not nectar sweet. Or maybe nectar hard candy? It leaves a great aftertaste on my tongue, too. And, months old or not, it still tastes fresh – green and a little buttery.

I could totally see myself buying something larger than sample size of this one. It’s delightful. Almost worth the kitty poop that preceded it.

Oh, yuck! My cats have been on my List this week, too. Why must biology be so gross?

This must be an awfully good tea, to almost make up for being pooped on by a cat. Good thing! The last thing anybody needs is a cat-poop incident followed by bad tea.

I thought of that, too, right after I cut open the package. “But what if this tea is awful? Then I’ll have been pooped on and had bad tea!” Thankfully though, it all worked out!

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.
