The Final Sipdown: Day 4
Decupboarding Total: 6

Yay! I’m ahead my one-a-day goal. Very exciting! (Well, it is to me. You might be less than thrilled.) I might make two-a-day my new goal. How daring do I feel? Hmmm….

This is a really interesting oolong – sweet and fruity and floral and vegetal. It’s got a note of something that is really unusual – it’s like a combo of kettle corn and stewed apples. I’ve been more daring with water temp on green oolongs (normally I do them at 175° since they seem to be easily ‘cooked’) and this one held up well and gives more sparkle than at 175° so thumbs up.

The second steep (1:30) is more ‘normal’. (In other words, not so strong on the kettle apples.) Nicely sweet on the front end and a flash of astringency at the end. It’s a tasty tea. Tasty, I tell you!

Oh the pressure! Especially since a lot of the samples I have left are fairly large. But I will overcome!

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.
