drank Jasmine Green Tea by Ito En
911 tasting notes

Grabbed this at the store last weekend and decided to have it today as part of my post-lunch tea ritual. Tastes very jasmine-y. It’s pretty strong, even when directly from the refrigerator. As it warms up, I start getting hints of green tea in there but oddly enough, it’s making me think of cookie dough. Jasmine flavored cookie dough. It’s something about the sweetness of it that gives me that feel, I think. Getting warmer now and the green tea is coming through in a less cookie dough way and a more astringent whoosh at the end. Not bitter or tart but kind of fresh feeling. And I’ve either gotten used to the strong jasmine or the green is countering it a bit. It’s not the most sophisticated jasmine I’ve had but it’s certainly not the worst. Much more of a natural jasmine floral than a perfumed jasmine floral. I think this ends up being a pretty nice RTD tea.

Jasmine flavored cookie dough? Ergh.

Yep, it was pretty funky! It actually worked in a weird way though – and I’m thinking the cookie dough taste was really my brain misfiring or something.

I had a golden monkey tea today that tasted like sweet potatoes.

Mmm, sweet potatoes! What brand? Samovar’s Yunnan Golden Buds taste very sweet potato-y too. I ♥ it.

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.


1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
