99

I am just getting moving today. Literally. I woke up at 3:30pm.

What that means is that today’s brainpower is exclusively reserved for what I’m working on, which means that I’m not allowed to do things like distract myself with tasting notes.

So that means a tried-and-true standby.

My poor coconut pouchong. It’s so parched and brittle and dry, now, despite being stored in a tin with an airtight, rubberized seal. Polishing off the last bit of the container I put it into has been daunting, but I really ought to bite the bullet and just make a gigantic pitcher of it iced, to make room for fresher stuff.

Still good though. It’s not fancy. It’s not rare. It’s not even as complex as most of the teas I enjoy. It’s just expertly balanced, and creamy and coconutty and delicious, and I love it.

Ohhh, I dunno. I like tea but I’m kind of a tea newbie. At this point I can say with authority that I may never be anything else, no matter how many teas I try…there is always something new out there.

I write a lot.

I also play way too many video games.


Ratings! (Bout time, wot?) This is a new arrangement, so…subject to change!

1-10: Not potable. First-sip disasters.

11-30: Intensely unpleasant…won’t catch me finishing the cup.

31-50: I really don’t like it…but maybe somebody else out there would.

51-70: Drinkable, but probably not the first thing I’m going to reach for.

71-90: Pretty good tea, and stuff that there’s a good chance I’ll have on-hand. Will do in a pinch at the low end, all the way up to regular visitors to my infuser on the high end.

91-100: Teas I really do not want to be without.
