I got a bit of this from TeaEqualsBliss and it is very tasty. This is a very smooth sweet tea with a kinda syrupy mouthfeel. The jasmine is elegant and sophisticated here with a slightly sunbaked grass flavor from the white tea base. The flavor of this tea is all innocence and grace. I hot brewed a cup and then used the same leaves in an overnight cold brew. Both were tasty. Every time I have a floral tea as well done as this, I can’t help but feel like a princess. But how can a princess be drinking tea in between doing dishes and feeding her dogs? Something’s not right! haha

In any case, thank you for sharing TeaEqualsBliss! It’s taking me forever to get to all the teas you sent me. And I still have all these teas from 52Teas’ grab bag sale. Then David’s Tea sent me a replacement for the Perfect Glass Mug* (because I broke the strainer) with samples of 3 teas, 2 of which I haven’t tried before! There’s untried teas up to my eyeballs! And a friend I work with claims I give him a lot of tea. hah! I only give him a small baggy full once a week or so. I’d give him more, but I’m afraid of revealing how large my tea collection actually is. People are already eying my DT perfect mug set with raised eyebrows.

*The whole set! ‘Cause they don’t sell the strainer part separately! For free! What excellent customer service! I feel bit bad about it, but hey, free mug! I’m giving it to my sister since she admired it when she saw mine. No strainer for her though. I needs it for my tea!

My co-worker tea buddy swears he is never going to buy tea again – as long as we are working together. I beg to differ if he doesn’t learn to like green and puerh tea soon :p

Bio

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
