drank Ancient Emerald Lily by Rishi Tea
911 tasting notes

Spring is starting to show up. Finally. There was even non-white and fluffy precipitation today so yay! But even though my mood has taken an upswing with the weather, I find myself gravitating towards heavier, non-spring-like teas today. Like this one.

This tea is not springy. This tea is too rich and darkly decadent to be springy. Crisp, mature, fresh and sweet. More like very early fall than something that matches what is outside right now. But I don’t care. It may not be seasonally appropriate, but it is good. So that works for me.

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.
