Another one I should have logged days ago. Ah well, it’s still very fresh in my mind so hopefully I can remember everything! I got this in my box from LiberTEAS and hadn’t tried it yet since I have had a lot of jasmine teas and they all sort of blend together after a while. However, I noticed some absolutely fantastic tasting notes and decided to give it a go.

I said that I’ve had a lot of jasmine blends before—green, oolong, even black—but never a white jasmine. Which is odd, since it seems like such a light, floral tea would be perfectly suited for jasmine. Though I suppose it would be easy to overwhelm, since jasmine seems to be the most heavily floral scent. However, the two are so perfectly balanced here. It’s airy, light, crisp, floral, sweet, ever so slightly grassy. Like drinking a wonderfully scented cloud! I must have brewed the leaves about 4 times and they continued to hold up beautifully, adding softer, sweeter notes with each steep. This is the perfect jasmine tea!

Bio

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
