I’ve had this sample for a few months as part of Adagio’s silver sampler (4 white teas). I don’t believe I ever logged the other ones and this is the last one I had finished so am determined to try it!

After yesterday’s experience I decided to go mild and gentle on the white. The instructions here say 195 for 3-5 minutes but I did mine for 2.5 minutes with 180 degree water approximately. This seems to have been a good decision.

I don’t really love jasmine tea too much but I can appreciate this. Very mild and sweet, the jasmine is relaxing and soothing. I’m trying to focus on letting the jasmine aroma waft up into my nose rather than focusing on what it tastes like. Good for a relaxing moment. I am not sure I will ever finish it so if anyone wants to swap please let me know!

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it
