247 tasting notes

For some reason this morning I woke up thinking, “I want to try something I haven’t tried yet.” Most of the time I just want my normal favourites in the morning and I don’t even think about trying something new until afternoon if I’m lucky. haha
This one tho, jumped out at me for some unknown reason. Maybe it’s ’cause I was looking at this sample last night right before bed.

So this tea is quite delicious. I don’t get much oolong flavour to it though. I think my sample had mostly just the lemon and the jasmine flowers which, btw, I didn’t realize was even in this tea! I was surprised when I looked at the ingredients to figure out what that extra flavour was and found it to be jasmine. But, the combo is quite nice and refreshing! I could see this making an exceptional iced tea. If I had more of this one I definitely would try it. Maybe I’ll resteep my leaves and see if I can get a good steep out of it to chill.

I have a tiny bit extra that I think I’m going to combine with some of my coconut oolong and see what the coconut and lemon taste like together. They might be quite nice!

Bio

My love of tea didn’t start until a few years after highschool, when a friend of mine made me an Orange Pekoe tea with milk and sugar. It was like drinking sweet nectar from heaven. Ever since then, I’ve been hooked.

Since then, I’ve branched out to embrace different flavours and kinds of tea.

There’s no question in my mind that loose leaf tea is the way to go. Absolutely NOTHING compares to it. I do have the odd bagged tea but I definitely prefer loose.

I would have to say, my favourite kinds are (in no particular order): black, herbal and rooibos (definitely prefer the green to red, but will drink the red too).

White and green teas I find tricky. I’ve definitely started to love them, but I have to be careful I don’t overdue it and that I don’t oversteep.

I drink tea every single day. I absolutely love it. I can’t image my life without it.

I don’t log every time I drink a tea as I don’t want to spam everyone with tons of duplicate loggings, but I will log when I have a new tea, which happens on a regular basis and when I do a SIPDOWN! :D
