It’s The Final Sipdown: Day 1 and this is the one I’m decupboarding. The smell is truly overpowering and makes me fear the first sip, but the taste is much better. It’s sweet and fruity and sweet. And possibly even tea-like, which is always nice for a flavored tea. I can’t say it is something I’m going to seek out in the future because it’s a bit too flavored and fruity for what I normally go for (and I have a mental block with flavored non-blacks), but I think those that enjoy fruity flavored teas would enjoy giving this one a home.

This is either going to be genius or a disaster.

GENIUS! IT WILL BE GENIUS!

Do you have official rules for Sipdown 2010? I think I may need to jump on that bandwagon!

Auggy

The Final Sipdown rules are simple – one sample per day (or in takgoti’s case, three per day) must be decupboarded or you will get beat with a wet noodle. Though I suppose any tea could be decupboarded, not just a sample-size or swap sample. But since takgoti is drowning in swap samples…

takgoti

Indeed. Though, as I don’t believe that I cupboarded all of my samples it means that I just have to drink the thing in its entirety so it’s gone. UNLESS there is a really, really good reason not to finish it, but I’m only allowing myself five opportunities to do so.

Oh, and log it or it didn’t happen!

Jaime

I think I’m going to attempt this, even though few to none of my samples/swap packs are in my cupboard.

Yay for finishing off samples!

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.
