drank Jasmine Tea by Golden Moon Tea
111 tasting notes

I’m trying to figure out whether I like Jasmine teas. So when I saw the SS I was totally confused because I know I do not like EG’s I think I would like Caravan and the verdict is still out on whether I like Jasmine I’ve tried Adagio’s Jasmine #12 and thought it was meh.

So today I thought I’d try jasmine from my GM sampler and see if we could get a verdict. The open packet (I think of Ricky and his comment about little silver suits) everytime I open one of these packets (random thought). Anyway once steeped this tea is more to my liking than the Jasmine #12 I think that this is much lighter and I like that. Which is strange because usually I like in your face flavors!?!

The taste is very light, another reference to Ricky here in that I agree with his notes on this tea the base doesn’t taste to me like a green tea but a white tea base. Well no verdict today I still don’t know if I like jasmine teas or not. Hmmm maybe I just think there okay I can take them or leave them or maybe I haven’t found the right one yet? Now I’ll be wondering all day if A&D’s Jasmine Green is the right jasmine tea for me! Drats I hate that!!!

Uhoh, teas have clothing, personalities and luxury items now. You’re undressing the poor teas and opening them up! Poor things! They can’t even fight back… except by spoiling your tea, I suppose =P

Ricky, The funny thing is when I opened this GM sampler I like ripped it open and remember thinking how in the heck did I just rip that open?? I have been just snipping of the end with kitchen scissors on the previous samples and when I ripped that one open I was like Oh no I tore his or her silver suit!! Ricky would kill me!!! LOL

Ricky

Haha, you’re right! I just realize, I always use a pair of scissors to trim the top a little. I remembered the first time I tore apart the suit I made a mess everywhere.
