drank Tan Yang Te Ji by TeaSpring
911 tasting notes

Okay, who spiked my Tan Yang with cocoa powder? Because this is more chocolate-y than yesterday’s chocolate chai. Which, okay, considering the lack of chocolate-ness in the chai, that’s really not saying too much, but still. Added to that cocoa flavor is a little thick and chewy texture like a happy Assam, a little sweet like a lovely Yunnan and when I slurp it’s even a bit toasty/smoky like a Keemun. This tea? So awesome.

Thanks for sending me more of this little beauty, Angrboda! It’s so delightful!

I must say, that sounds deeeeelightful.

I figured you had to have a refresher to compare the Jing Zhi with. :)

Takgoti, it is! It’s om-nom-nom-nommy. :)

It totally is! Honestly, this tea will be the reason I make a TeaSpring order.

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.
