drank Green Tea Jasmine by Impra
6 tasting notes

The jasmine scent is quite faint. There’s some unpleasant astringency in the tea, which might be also due to my brewing methods, not sure about that yet. The recommendation was to brew for 3-5 minutes, and I did only for 2 minutes. So maybe my water was too hot (I really need a thermometer of sorts!). Or maybe this just isn’t that good green tea.

I don’t fancy jasmine teas so much, but I gave the score to this one based on how it is as a green jasmine tea, and not if I like jasmine or not.

Bio

I fell in love with tea some years ago. I have never liked coffee much, and when I really started to learn about tea, I was just enchanted.

I love to try different teas and to find new expereriences. My current favourite is oolong tea from Taiwan, but other staple items in my cupboard include darjeeling, chai, some fine green tea and of course white tea for those delicate moments.

I was thinking how to grade teas here in my tealog, and for now I decided to rate every cup in a separate log (so that e.g. 1st & 2nd steeps probably are found as separate notes). The scale I composed for myself for giving the smiley/number grade, is about the following:

0-20 No no! Why on earth do I have this tea? And what made me drink it? This is bad. As bad as bad goes.

21-40 Better than worst. But still not very close to good. I might just finish the whole cup of this, but will not drink it again, if avoidable.

41-60 Your basically ok tea. Not a very special experience though.

61-80 Very nice and drinkable tea. Enjoyable.

81-100 One of the best teas I’ve tasted, would definitely like to have more!
