drank Jasmine Black by A Southern Season
1826 tasting notes

My jasmine bower is in full bloom and since that is my main eating and tea drinking spot outside, I was inspired to try this tea again. It has been frightfully hot here – mid 90’s – and I have been doing yard work so I decided to try it iced.

I like this better iced than hot. And even better – after the first half glass I decided to try to mimic that wonderful Golden Moon Vanilla Jasmine tea that JacquelineM sent me last summer by adding about 1/8 teaspoon of vanilla extract to the 17 ounce glass of iced tea. Delicious, and has that cream soda/root beer flavor! I thought my Jasmine Black tea was going to go to waste but I think I can finish it easily this way!

I have yet to try a plain jasmine tea that I love. It is just too flowery for me and I feel like smacking my lips to get the perfume taste out of my mouth. Perhaps I should try Harney and Sons – I like almost everything they make.

Bio

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about five years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
