I neeever saw a black tea with jasmine. Have you?
Should be packing now, we bought a new apartment, and we are moving tomorrow. (it’s actually 3 in the morning over here and I should also be sleeping) but oh well.

Back to the note.
I was not able to see the color of this tea, but I am guessing BROWN. I sniffed at the teabag (God, it’s a oldfasion teabag) and I can’t detect any jasmine at all. Took a sip or two and tried really hard to find the jasmine flavor but to no avail.

No jasmine.

Bummer. They get one star for trying. (Out of TEN!)
Black tea and jasmine… never saw that before…

Cofftea

Yep I have. Couldn’t give you a brand name off the top of my head though lol.

Angrboda

Well… It is Pickwick.

Cofftea

Angrboda, I meant yes I’ve seen one other than this. If I meant this particular tea Iwould have said, “Yes I’ve seen (or drank) this before.”

Angrboda

My comment was in reply to Rijje’s post.

Cofftea

Ah ok sorry. I didn’t catch the connection so I thought it was directed at me.

Angrboda

Pickwick is one of the most common teabag brands here. Think Lipton. Most people who have had better stop expecting ambrosia and nectar from Pickwick.

Rijje

Aww… Just moved to another place and haven’t logged on before now!
Cofftea – did you try another brand? Did that taste good?

And yes Anrboda… It IS pickwick. I don’t know what went through my head when I made it! Thank god it’s not my tea (it was on the shelf of my workplace)

Cofftea

No Rigge- I didn’t. I’m not a fan of non chai flavored blacks, sorry.

Rijje

Oh! Okay, I misunderstood your post then ;)
Well we’re opposites then. I have a hard time drinking chai for the moment.

Bio

Many things can be said about me, but I rather not go into details… Other than the facts that: Yes, I am from Greenland (Yeah, it’s totaly awesome!) and I love my books, cats and tea.

I love all kinds of tea, but must confess a greater love towards the Da Hong Pao and a deep hatred for Ceylon and Pickwick. (Yes, I am aware that Ceylon is area). Sorry, It’s not them, it’s me.
Other than that I love the greens, the whites and the blacks (and all of the things in the middle) evenly.

Rating system – I love the smileyrate here on steepster, so I’ll just follow that. That’s 1 point for the worst tea in the history of man, and 100 point for some of the best tea… note that I usually rate high because I am a optimist and love all things tea.
