By the time the husband was ready for tea, I had finished two steeps of Caravan, so I decided to partake in the tea-ness. Though we’d try this one again today if only for the novelty of the little CTC leaves which I find quirky and fun.

It’s not an overly-nuanced tea. There’s clean cardboard, earthy and a little almost Darjeeling brightness. Getting a little bake-y hint, too and a hint of astringency once I breathe in after a sip. Nothing too exciting and closer to flat than a well-balanced flavor but it’s a good standard tea, I think. Probably won’t get it again but I find myself intrigued by CTC leaf so I’m sure I’ll be getting more of that style of tea.

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.
