drank Yunnan White Jasmine by Verdant Tea
4043 tasting notes

soooo you know how sometimes you think you should branch out and try things that you might not like just in case your taste buds have changed?

shudder yeaaaah… mine haven’t. LOL Picked this up as a sample with my last verdant order and sadly i couldn’t even manage to drink half the cup. Floral much? Jasmine… check! In to the spreadsheet it goes.

Not rating this only because i know that it’s ME not the tea in this particular instance.

I have learned, I do NOT like jasmine! lol

Sil

yeah i’m with you on that one. gah

Sil

i’d take a steaming mug full of coconut oolong before jasmine anything i think…

BoxerMama

I’d drink lapsang souchong before another jasmine tea! lol

Last time I made jasmine tea it infected my timolino for a week. The smell would not go away.

Kittenna

Hahaha you guys. I actually like the Yunnan White Jasmine on occasion (I have plenty of it though, Sil :P), but definitely understand how it could be offputting. I think, for me, it requires less leaf to be maximally tasty, as too much makes it wayyyyy too floral!

Sil

oh i like lapsang..well some haha

BoxerMama

I think lapsang taste like a cup of smoked cheese. lol

Hmmm, I was kinda wandering about the floral level of this one. I got a sample from Dinosura. I will take your advice Kittenna about the leaf amount. I don’t normally like jasmine, but Verdant seems to find ones that I do like.

Well, the tea base here is lovely, which is probably a big part of it. I’ve had samples from more than one batch, though, and IIRC one was definitely more floral than the other. Also, keep to a short infusion time.

I love this one!
Definitely keep the steepings short on this one though. It can get overwhelmingly flowery if steeped too long.

Bio

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
