5 Tasting Notes

I will re-attempt it with a more careful watch on the steeping time, but so far, it’s coming out too bitter for my taste.

Absolutely gorgeous (both the look and the taste). Like most of the flowering teas, I have a little two-cup glass pot that I steep and then continue to top off with hot water as I drink it – I get anywhere from 5-8 cups this way, I think and the flowering teas are robust enough to stand up to being re-steeped that much. It takes this one a few minutes to unfurl, but once it does I think it’s one of the prettiest that I’ve tried. A bit of sugar brings out the honey undertones of the the jasmine in it. It’s one of my favorites so far.

It’s not quite as strong as I generally like my Earl Grey (it’s not quite strong enough to take milk like I like to add) but it’s still very good.

With the right amount of sugar added (my preference with white teas) this was drinkable, but something about the flavor was off-putting to me overall. I don’t think I’ll get this one again for myself, but I also wouldn’t throw it out if it was part of a mixed set or given to me as a gift.
