911 tasting notes

I am having a string of bad luck with teas this week. Or at least my morning teas. This one I didn’t brew long enough and it left it feeling thin. 5 minutes is definitely the way to go on this one. That’s what I get for not checking. Also, it doesn’t benefit at all from being in a travel tumbler. Not having the chance to smell it while sipping makes this tea flat and thin(ner) and pretty much like construction paper. Thankfully, once I got it down below sloshing-out level, I took the tumbler lid off and that improved the tea quite a lot. It was still too thin (my fault with the shorter steep though) but it was back to tasting nutty and nicely cardboard-y and a little hint of fruity. So user error on this one. Oops.

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.
