Golden Moon Sampler Tea #20 (…My count must be off, because I don’t have enough teas left to only be at 20…oh well!)
Edit: Ah, there’s the problem! two 17s…and two 8s and 7s and 6s…yeah I fail at counting.
Let’s try that again: Golden Moon Sampler Tea #24

It’s a little silly to me that I’m drinking the Jasmine Tea AFTER the Jasmine Pearls and the Vanilla Jasmine. Shouldn’t I have started with that? Formed a baseline or something? Clearly fate does not think so. Actually, fate probably thinks its funny. That’s the problem with consigning yourself to fate. You have to put up with its sense of humor.

So this tea was definitely hurt by going last in the group of jasminey things in the sampler. It basically tastes meh. I mean, not BAD or anything. I like jasmine tea and I like this, but it just doesn’t stand out to me at all. I think both the vanilla jasmine and the jasmine pearls have more character.

Bio

I’m a Pole who grew up in Texas, is currently a graduate student in California studying Japan. How’s THAT for random?

Being Polish, my family has always drunk a lot of tea, and I am no different. I may drink more tea than water. On the other hand, I can’t say that I’m very particular about it; I’m generally pretty careless with steeping times and water temperature and I don’t even have a proper teapot (mostly because the lid broke during the move to California ;_;).

I always drink my tea unsweetened and I only add milk in the case of the most egregiously chai-ish of chais. (not really a big fan of milk in general)

Given that so many of my entries seem to be about my morning tea, I felt I should add something here about me and mornings: I fail at mornings. I fail at them a LOT. Therefore I often also fail at proper tea making in the mornings.
