Na-na-na-na. Hey hey hey. Goooooodbye!
The Final Sipdown: Day 3
Decupboarding Total: 4
Yay!

PS – Cut the steep time on this to 1:30 and I’m much happier with it. Ironically, it is my last cup, but whatever. There’s still some nice astringency but it is better balanced by the creaminess and chlorophyll sweetness I expect from Kukicha.

Also, I iced the second steep (15s) of this from yesterday and just had some. It’s fairly mild and softly sweet and grassy. Very nice.

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 1 min, 30 sec

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.
