25 Tasting Notes
This was a while ago I know. But I finished my sample and now I’m without Puchong. Sad~
I’m going to order this in 2 or 4oz as soon as I get the chance. I loved this tea so much.
I already thanked her on her blog, but thanks again for the $5 coupon Snooty Tea Person! Lovely!
It hurts, kill it before it reproduces and hurts your friends and family. Only good for those emergencies where you can’t find anything else, but even then it’s better not drink it.
Steaming pile of tea-like pee.
I was introduced to tea drinking through good ’old jasmine tea, so I really enjoy it and have had quite a few versions of it, bagged and loose.
I tried this version of it at a small cafe near my area. When I ordered it I was a bit dismayed to receive a blistering hot cup of bagged tea, expecting the usual disappointment in a sachet.
Oh ohoho, was I WRONG. This bagged jasmine was splendid! And it still is as I drink it right now. I’ve had this tea about three times now and have made a whole pot of it. I managed to get a whole pot out of one sachet/bag so that was very nice.
As far as flavor goes, the jasmine is on the strong side. First the green tea hits the tip of your tongue for a second, then the fresh sweetness of the jasmine fills your mouth, with a creamy smoothness following it to the back of the throat. I haven’t experienced any bitterness from this tea. I really do recommend steeping at 195 degrees F for 3:30 minutes.
This is the best bagged jasmine that I’ve tasted yet. I love the fresh creaminess. It’s also great for drinking cold/iced! Favorite bagged jasmine tea.
Last Words: If you are going to buy/drink a bagged jasmine tea, go for Mighty Leaf’s and you won’t be disappointed.
I am new to traditional Matcha preparation and taste. I would say that this tea is good for Matcha beginners that are new to the Matcha scene. This brand is on the expensive side for its quality though, it isn’t quite as rich and bold as I’d hoped that it would be.
It has a weak boldness that hits you in the back of your throat followed by a short-lived sweetness. It does have a weak grassy aftertaste that only lasts for a few minutes. Overall, I do enjoy this tea when I drink it, despite the weaker taste.
Last Words: Good for beginners looking to experiment, but rather weak and thin.
