drank Breakfast Blend by Samovar
911 tasting notes

I like the versatility of this tea. At 3 minutes and it’s a smooth, sweet, medium bodied tea that is bold enough to be breakfast-worthy but nice enough to make me happy without additives (even in a travel tumbler, which is a bit of an achievement). Steeped for 5 minutes though, it turns into a stout, growly, super-chewy full-bodied breakfast blend that cries out for a little milk to smooth the edges. So on mornings like today when I want a kinder wake-up tea, I can reach for this one. But on days that I need something to slap me in the face and shake me awake? Yeah, this works well then, too.

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.
