drank Jasmine (loose leaf) by Twinings
115 tasting notes

I really liked this tea. Some of my family members celebrated a baby shower, and gave me this when they came back from it. They gave me several teas from Twinings. I was very gracious, as I always appreciate free teas. When I opened the can, it smelled very floral. The scent was light, delicate, and yet the tea smelled strangely robust for a green tea. The previous morning, I had gone to the farmers market, and gotten some fresh vegetables and fruit, which I decided to prepare for dinner. I made the tea just in time to eat. It tasted wonderful (both dinner and the tea). I could taste the Jasmine, and something else. I can’t quite place what the other element was, though. The tea was a bit strong for a green tea, but the Jasmine made it work. I think this tea might be one that I order for myself.

I love drinking and reviewing tea. Green, Oolong, Black, White, Yellow, Dark, Pu-erh… It’s all great. In particular, my favorites are Taiping Hou Kui, and Aged Teas.

I’m currently in California, and started my interest in tea at a very young age. Ever since, I’ve looked for exotic, rare, and even newly-developed teas to try.

It doesn’t end there: I’ll try just about any tea new to me that crosses my path.

I typically brew tea in a traditional manner (different teas require different steeping times and water temperatures, ect…). Whichever directions are on the packaging or website, I tend to follow as well.

I’m also building a private collection of Pu-Erh teas and teas good for Aging. Hopefully, they’ll turn out nice.

Companies: If you are looking for a reviewer for tea, I would be happy to sample any of the teas you offer.

Message me for Sample swapping.
