911 tasting notes

I brought some sugar with me to work now so I’m giving this one another go. So I’m going to toss in a couple pinches of sugar and see if that makes this happy for me.

Things are pretty much the same as day before yesterday when I had this so I won’t repeat all that. Oddly, though, that spicy smell from yesterday is a little different (maybe because of the sugar?) and makes me crave boiled crawfish. Just thought I’d throw that out there.

The taste is sweet (duh) and light but the fruity isn’t as there any more – covered up by the sugar, I’m thinking. But the big question: does the sugar kill the astringency? Well, yes and no. The astringency isn’t there during the swallow or right after (yay!) but it seems to kind of sneak back up a few seconds after each swallow, coating the back half of my mouth with a tiny bit of bitter almost morning-breath taste/feel (boo!). It’s just barely a hint but I find I’m reacting to it strongly. Most of the time I can take a little bitterness – might even seek it out on the rare occasion. But something about this one just makes me wince a little after each sip. Not happy making.

Leaving the rating where it is. Oh well.

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.
