drank Jasmine #12 by Adagio Teas
279 tasting notes

Eeep. Went to make an after lunch bottle of tea, and choose this. I poured the pearls into my bottle, and realized that it was my last serving of the sample I got! No more #12 until I have worked through the POUND of Jasmine #9 that I ordered. If you have never ordered 16 oz of a tea before, please be informed… that’s a LOT of tea!

Jasmine #12 smells so lovely. I want a perfume that smells like it! And I love seeing the pearls unfurl as it steeps. If you have one, use a clear glass pot or tea bottle to enjoy the show.

Bio

When I was a very young child, I swallowed an ice cube whole. It got stuck in my throat, and my mother had me drink hot tea to melt it away. That started a love affair with tea that has never abated.

I dabbled with Celestial Seasonings and other grocery store teabags for awhile, in my young and foolish days. But a few years ago, I received a tea of the month subscription from Adagio, and I found that there was a whole other world of tea out there that I had never experienced.

I love drinking tea, and I love the personal ceremony of making a glass or pot of tea for myself. It’s like a meditation.
