A little after dinner tea to finish off the evening (well, finish it off before the dessert course starts. Both of my parents said this smelled like roasted seaweed to them. But to me it smells sweet and almost honeyed. Taste-wise, there is a little nut-like tartness at the end, but the front taste matches the smell of sweetness, with perhaps a little nectar or fruit or light honey, transitioning to a little vegetal as it cools.. Not an overly thin tea, it gives both a light/high taste and a darker, more substantial taste at the same time. This actually gives a nice finish to my meal.

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.
