I’m in a brown mood today. Not a bad brown mood – I’m in quite a good mood actually – I just feel very attracted to brown today. Brown shirt, brown flip flops, brown eye shadows, bronzer instead of blush… It’s just a happy brown day.

But because of my affinity toward brown, I didn’t want a sweet or fruity tea today. I wanted something solid. I would say I wanted something brown but most teas end up brown… Rather I wanted something that tasted like a happy brown. So I pulled this one out.

I probably could have used just a tiny bit more sugar or milk (for my 12 oz travel mug I pretty much just waved the sugar and milk over it) to make it a wee bit smoother because this was encroaching upon the taste I would want for a grumpy brown day, but ultimately it worked out. Very nutty tasting, maybe malty (I’m still I little unsure as to that actual taste but I’m pretty sure that’s what I got more toward the end of the mug), strong and a little rough, but not bad. Good for a happy brown day.

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.
