I’m having an awful day, mood-wise. Slept badly, had some pretty brutal nightmares, spent the better part of the morning feeling like a zombie. I needed a pick me up, but didn’t feel like something fruity or sweet, which meant I didn’t reach for my usual Bear Trap or Ceylon Star. Something made me pull down my tin of Butterfly Jasmine and the smell hit me immediately after opening the tin and I knew that was what I wanted.
Lightly yet boldly Jasminey, I get all the wonderful jasmine goodness without feeling like i’m drinking soap or perfume. The green tea itself is slightly sweet, which I think really accentuates the bright crispness of the jasmine.
I’m contemplating making matcha in some steeped butterfly jasmine when I finish this cup.
