It’s officially The Final Sipdown: Day 3 and I thought I would be decupboarding my Kukicha. (Actually, I still might, but that will be determined later today.) Instead, this lovely little tea is the one that is going bye-bye.

I’m sad to see this one go. It’s sweet and thick and almost a little textured, especially before it cools. I don’t know exactly why Adagio calls it ‘delicate’ because I really don’t think it is. (Just because it isn’t tough enough to jump you in a dark alley and steal your wallet doesn’t mean a tea is ‘delicate’.) This has a little Yunnan-like boldness and a lot of Fuijian-like sweetness and smoothness. Very enjoyable and something I could totally see picking up.

How long does the SIPDOWN go for!? When’s the last day!?

Auggy

There’s no official end date but the plan is to carry it through to when takgoti moves to California late next month. So about 6 weeks?

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.
