sigh of relief Thank goodness I’m not crazy. A really deep inhale of the brewed tea… Another one… Is that jasmine? No, it can’t be. But I KNOW Jasmine and it’s in there. I don’t remember any of these people writing about jasmine, only about rice and cocoa and whatnot. But it’s jasmine I swear. So I looked up the tea and read the ingredients. Oh, there it is, jasmine freakin’ rice!

The aroma is really, really nice. Can’t get enough of it nice. But it smells savoury, like I should be eating this, not drinking it. Speaking of food teas, I wonder what it feels like to drink… well.. bacon. I have small baggie from, you guessed it, Dexter3657 so i’ll find out soon enough. Maybe tomorrow I’ll have eggs with a side of Pineapple Bacon Rooibos (52teas).

Anyway, back to this tea. This is very tasty. Now I get what the fuss is about. And it’s really nice to finally drink a tea that you’ve read all the notes and everyone is tasting these things and you wonder if you too will taste this, even though maybe you have the palate of a mat (you know, like doormat). Happy to have tried this.

Bio

Im a fairly recent follower of the loose leaf tea drinking cult. March 2013 to be exact. Never been much into tea before. Growing up in Romania, tea was something mom made for you when you were sick. As an adult, my hot beverage of choice has been coffee, both flavoured and regular. I’ve recently stumbled upon Teavana and DAVIDs TEA and quickly got addicted to the latter. Then came steepster and all else followed.

Formerly a mathematician, I’m a chef and a wine lover with a trained palate but find that I lack the linguistic prowess for tea tasting notes. Now there’s something to learn!

I prefer flavoured teas. It’s probably the newbie in me. I just don’t get cravings for a straight black tea. If I end up having one, I drop in a slice of lemon and artificial rum flavouring (ugh, what moron admits to this?). A black tea fixed this way reminds me of skating at an outdoor rink as a young one, with a thermos full of tea made just as I described..

Im learning so I drink them all. everything! Am even introducing myself to pu’erh. So far I can do fine with the sheng cause frankly, they don’t taste like pu’erh to me. The shou is another story.
