Had a little side by side tasting of this and Golden Moon’s lapsang souchong with my dad pre-present opening tonight. This one was his favorite since it had a fuller body and a stronger smoky taste. As it cooled, there was a sweeter taste but a little darker in sweetness than Golden Moon’s. The smoky scent and flavor was stronger and not quite as smooth to me but my dad enjoyed it more for that reason, saying it was a great winter tea. While I prefer Golden Moon’s, my dad prefers this one so I might have to keep a little of this on hand when he comes to visit.

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.
