47 Tasting Notes
This was a sample from Jade Teapot. A very smooth cup of tea. I’m more used to the CTC Assams I drink with milk, but I liked this straight. It was a little mild to have with my ginger cardamom scone. I wasn’t aware that it can be steeped multiple times, which is a plus. I usually don’t re-steep my tea except for oolongs, but I think I’ll try and see how I like it. Overall this was a pleasant cup of tea.
Courtesy of Erin! The leaves are very pretty. Opening the bag, I loved the smell. It reminded me of the acacia/rose gum I used to love as a kid. Mint stands out when steeped, but the floral notes are definitely there. I added a tiny bit of sugar for faint sweetness and it made a relaxing cup. Not my everyday tea, but I can see myself enjoying this occasionally when I want something light and aromatic.
