My last from the Steepster August box. I wasn’t looking forward to this one since I thought it might be overly floral. Opening the package didn’t make me feel better, as it smelled pretty damn flowery. Turned out to be a fantastic jasmine scented white though. Extremely balanced in flavor. Good white tea flavor and the jasmine adds a different, floral sweetness to the white tea. It’s a great evening tea. Almost a light dessert tea. Relaxing.
Reminds me of summer evenings when I lived in Cali. Sitting on the patio after a hot day while a cool breeze travels through the backyard, bringing with it the scent of the potted jasmine flowers in the neighborhood… Just chillin. Much better than right now, where I’m chillin because it’s freaking cold downstairs. I’ll have to put my teapot inside my sweatshirt pretty soon.
