drank Jasmine Pearl by Rishi Tea
174 tasting notes

Yesterday was a tea-less day, and the day before I only had one cup first thing in the morning. So, today I am making up for that and I apologize if all the tea-logging is getting annoying. Anyways… I don’t know what it’s been with me and jasmine teas lately, but for whatever reason they seem to be stronger than I remember to the point that they are cloying. Today though was a warm, sunny day and jasmine tea beckoned to me. The first steep I sweetened with rock sugar and threw in the fridge to have it cold for later or even tomorrow morning even though I have been sipping at it. Right now I’m drinking the second steep, hot. It’s strong in scent but having already been steeped once it’s mellowed a little. That being said it does not mean that the jasmine is by any means mellow, because it’s not. I find that I’m actually preferring this cold at the moment and am anticipating warmer weather since this iced and Silver Needles iced is what I typically drink during summer.

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.
