drank Ancient Tea Flower by Rishi Tea
911 tasting notes

Spent a good portion of this evening descaling the Zojirushi and I was too lazy to boil water the old fashioned way, so this is my first tea since the unknown type of genmaicha I had at the sushi bar at lunch. Since it’s so late and I’m tired, I didn’t want anything with caffeine, which, in my pantry, REALLY limits me. But I haven’t had this one in a while and it sounded good so I went for it.

Months of being forgotten about has not been detrimental to it. It’s still good. Sweet but musty/musky – very similar to a diluted honey in taste, though not as sweet. Doesn’t have the depth of a plum honey (which is usually the type of ‘honey’ taste I find in teas that say they taste of fruit and honey) but a more clover honey. Not overly complex in taste but really nice. I like it.

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.
