This dry tea smells so beautiful. It has a pleasant jasmine scent. The downy jasmine balls are perfectly rolled, all uniform, beautiful colouring. As they are brewed they unfurl perfectly. There is a slight downy look to each ball which makes me think of recently hatched chicks. So cute…can tea be cute?

The smell of the brewed tea is very strong jasmine. I was a bit worried because the scent was so strong. The colour of the liquor is a dark golden colour with a tinge of pink.

The taste of the tea is wonderful. There is a jasmine taste but certainly not as strong as the smell.

This is a great tea for the appearance, the smell, and the taste.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
