312 tasting notes

Pretty much what I expected from this. I love jasmine green tea, so it is no surprise that I love this too.

The price for 50g is a bit much, but considering I use half a teaspoon per cup it’s not a bad value.

I’ve tried this, butterfly jasmine, and silk dragon jasmine. Between butterfly jasmine and dragon pearls, I don’t have much of a preference (although dragon pearls IS cheaper). Silk dragon jasmine is the cheapest option but it’s not whole leaf. So it needs a shorter steep time to be enjoyable and not too strong or bitter. If I were hard pressed for money, I’d get silk dragon jasmine. However I think the quality that dragon pearls offers is worth the extra money.

Preparation

Feel free to add me on Steepster, I’ll probably add you back. :)

I don’t log tea every time I drink it. Tasting notes tend to be about either one style of brewing or a new experience. It is helpful for me to look back on my notes and see what a tea tasted like or which steeping parameter worked best for me. I try to mostly short steep tea unless it only tastes better with a long steep. I’d rather experience what a tea tastes like over 3 or 12 steeps than just 1 to 3 long steeps.

When I write “tsp”, the measurement I use is a regular western teaspoon. Not a tea scoop

What my tea ratings mean:

99-100: Teas that blow my mind! An unforgettable experience. Savoured to the last drop. I felt privileged to drink this.

90-98: Extraordinary, highly recommended, try it and you won’t be disappointed (and if you are, mail me the tea!)

85-89: Wonderful, couldn’t expect more but not a favourite.

80-84: Excellent, a treasured experience but not a favourite.

70-79: Good but could be better. Above average.

60-69: Average, unexceptional, not something I would buy again. Slightly disappointed. I’d rather drink water.

50-0: Varying degrees of sadness

No rating: Mixed feelings, can’t decide whether I like it or not, not enough experience with that sort of tea to rate it. A dramatic change of heart.
