Okay, I’ve no idea what’s been going on with this tea – whether it is the tea or user error – but this is not giving me happy tea vibes the past couple of times I’ve made this. So yeah, rating is going down. I still have more so I will keep trying to fix what is obviously broken but if I can’t, expect the rating to go down even more. Because this? Not fun. Thin, flat, weak with just a faint nutty taste but otherwise like drinking dishwater. That’s all I’m getting out of this.

Though now that I think about it, I think that this time and last time were the only times I’ve ever prepared this with milk (which tends to be my default setting when I’m putting something in a travel tumbler). I thought it was strong enough to take with a dash of milk but now I’m thinking that is the source of the flat boringness. Mental note – take it straight next time and see how it goes. (And can I just add? I get grumpy over black teas that aren’t able to deal with at least a tiny bit of milk. Wusses.)

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.
