106 Tasting Notes
I couldn’t figure out what was it that drove me to get a pouch of this when I was at a DavidsTea store. I think I chalked it up to it being my preference for oolongs. But after looking at it’s ingredients I figured out that it was because of the jasmine in it. I have been crazy for jasmine lately and I’m always looking to add more teas that feature it to my collection.
Anyway, I like this one. The lemon adds a refreshing kick to it and the jasmine is quite soothing. This would make a fabulous “sick day” tea.
And now to continue my hunt for a sweet potato tea. I’m super cranky that Adagio discontinued theirs especially since Cara’s Bilbo blend looked SO delicious. But I think Lupicia has one so I may order that. If anyone knows of any others, feel free to suggest them.
Bought this at the Moncton store while the gf and I were heading back from our trp to Halifax earlier this week. I told the SA that I was looking to try more of DT’s white teas and this was one of the three she pulled down from the shelf.
I wasn’t sure how much I would like this since it smelled so sweet and I’ve been looking for more vegetal teas lately. This turned it to be a delight. It has a delicious caramel flavour to it and I really wish it wasn’t so expensive or I’d add it to my permanent collection.
I’m at a friend’s place in Boston (just got back from Fenway where I saw Jay Z and Justin Timberlake woooo!) and I found this while rummaging around in her tea collection. I had this iced with a bit of sugar and it was so delicious! I don’t know if I just miraculously ended making “the perfect brew” of this, but it wasn’t bitter at all (even before I added the sugar). I’m sad because it’ll be awhile before I’ll ever be able to try this again but I’m glad I got the opportunity!
I love doing photo shoots in the summer, but I hate editing in the summer (because I just want to be running around outside!). I did a shoot last month and I’m only now getting around to editing them. A few pots of this tea are getting me through quite nicely. Here’s a peek at one of the photos: http://www.flickr.com/photos/riotproof/9359264259/
The first pot (steeped for 4 mins) was really nice. The jasmine was present but the green tea was stronger. The second pot (steeped for 5ish mins) is the opposite. The jasmine feels heavy on my tongue but it’s nice and calming.
