drank Jasmine Tea by Royal King
272 tasting notes

One of my friends who knows of my love for tea brought me a large tin (8 oz!!) of this back from her trip to New York. The secret to this rather generic jasmine green is to use water around the 165 degree range and to steep for no longer than 2 minutes. The directions on the tin to use boiling water and to steep for 5 minutes produces a horribly bitter cup of tea! It took some experimentation to find the magic steeping parameters, but carefully steeping this produces a pleasant cup. I found it mild and good enough for everyday drinking.

I love tea. I first tasted loose leaf when my grandpa brought some back from Russia and I remember just savoring it. Not sure what kind it was; all I remember is that it was loose leaf and it was good. =)

I really enjoy oolong, jasmine tea, and white tea. I especially love those black teas with chocolate notes! Also, chai is a constant favorite. I enjoy green tea, but need to be in the mood for it to actually want it.

As far as tisanes go, I enjoy chamomile and occasionally a mint. I am interested to try rooibus and honey bush. I do prefer teas without artificial flavoring but I’m willing to try most things.

I know next to nothing about puerh, but I like what I have tried so far.

I am consistently amazed at the flavors contained in one leaf. I am on a quest to discover all of them! Slowly, though. Good tea is expensive. :P

Other things I enjoy: Books. My family. Truth. Campfires. Animal Rescue. Gardening. Sushi. Mountain biking. Documentaries. Trees. Music. Culture. Sour cream raisin pie. Not necessarily in that order. :P
