The Final Sipdown: Day 8
Decupboarding Total: 15

Today, The Final Sipdown feels a bit like a beating. Mostly because it seems like I have all of these meh to okay teas that I have to finish off – and I have a lot of them left (a lot of each tea more than a lot of tea… well, actually I have both). Anyway, I’ve decided to do something that is leaving me feeling a little mixed: Decupboard a good tea.

No, not just good. A great tea.

So in some ways, I’m all “Yay! One more tea decupboarded! One more step closer to allowing myself to make a Kusmi order! YAY!” But on the other hand, I’m all “But, but, but! This means this tea is gone. Why can’t I save this tea forever and ever and then I’ll never have to worry about being out of it? WHY?”

So yeah, mixed.

I miss it too. Unfortunately I think it’s a wee bit on the expensive side to be a regular…

Oh how our love for tea (or anything) can quickly feel like slavery! What if we only had one tea, so we could enjoy it completely, without the experience being ‘watered-down’ because as we enjoy it, we also have in mind the new that is to come?

Angrboda, at least it is cheaper than Adagio’s Anhui Keemun! Chicago Tea Garden’s version is cheaper though I don’t know what shipping would be internationally (I’m assuming you could arrange that with Tony).
Shinobicha, no slavery here! The final experience with this one was tinged with sadness since I didn’t want to see it go. The only reason I was thinking of new teas to come was trying to find a silver lining to my Keemun-less cloud.

Regardless of how bittersweet saying goodbye may have been, your accountability buddy is proud of you for forging on through TFS! [And it will simply make the reacquaintance sweeter, should you find yourself buying more in the future!]

Yay! And I still have CTG’s Keemun so I feel kind of like I get to have my cake and eat it too – accountability buddy is giving me the thumbs up AND I still have tasty Keemun in my pantry!

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.
