Bad news this evening has me reaching for a comfort tea. This one fits the bill nicely. Opening the canister, I get a delicious whiff of honeyed nectar. The taste is sweet, soft and gentle with a vegetal undertone and slightly tingly endnote that combine to give me a comforting cuddle. I can’t help but breathe and let go a bit as I sip.

Wonderful note! makes me want to revisit my silver needle tea. I always seem to get “mashed potatoes” from it because I know I’m oversteeping it. I want “honeyed nectar”! :)

Okay, the mashed potato tea cracks me up! I tend to get “leftover water from boiling soybeans” from other SN. This is the first (only) straight SN that has given me such joy. (Though the mashed potato SN sounds oddly tempting just for weirdness factor.)

I hope the bad news is short lived. I’m glad you had some comfort tea on hand.

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.
