2 Tasting Notes

I bought this tin box for roughly $6.5 in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. I’ve prepared it four times so far, but I can’t get it to taste as good as other jasmine teas I tried. I keep getting the impression that I add the water while it’s too hot, or that I over-steep it, even though I never let it infuse past 3 minutes.

The smell is lovely, but the taste doesn’t (fully) catch up. It’s not bad but I wouldn’t call it stellar.

This tea has a distinctively earthy smell & taste. It feels like you’re licking the mossy floor of a forest. Excellent for when you want to get in ‘the zone’.
