I’ve been thirsty for a jasmine tea lately but for the last several days they all smell cloying and off-putting to me. So, in another attempt at jasmine I open my bag of this and while the jasmine is still slightly strong to me, it’s the lightest scented one I have and it’s not that bad at the moments. I brew it up and the wet leaves are almost overpowering to my recently more sensitive nose, but in the cup it’s not as strong and while sipping it is quite a delight. I’m glad I drank this, I’ve been craving jasmine tea and this fit the bill. It’s does not have a jasmine scent/taste as strong as most jasmine teas do, it has a stronger tea base and I’m going to go re-steep this now.

Bio

I’m an avid tea drinker, it’s what I drink all day and why I’m here. I don’t sweeten my teas except for the occasional iced tea or cold-brewed tea. I typically brew my teas with a brew basket in a 12 oz cup. If I brew another way I will always note it.

Dislikes: black teas, milk flavored oolongs, hibiscus, red rooibos, licorice, dessert teas, mate, guayusa.

Loves: straight teas, especially Chinese green teas, sencha, jasmine, dan congs, mint, coconut.

My ratings are based mostly on the smiley faces. If a tea is of good quality but not to my taste preference I try not to rate it because I think that is unfair.

I drink a lot of the same teas and will not record every time I drink them. I log them the first time I try them and then again if I did something different and/or got different results.

I also try to keep my cupboard updated to what I actually have for those that wish to swap, although some of them are merely samples.
