1917 Tasting Notes
I think my general aversion to jasmine teas comes from the fact that the only prepared samples I’ve ever tasted are sweetened to the point of hummingbird feeder syrup. This one doesn’t come on nearly as strong and is rather pleasant. Not getting any pomegranate, really, but maybe it’s just toning down the flowery flavor.
Another one for future full review on www.itsallabouttheleaf.com. General first impression: While rolling around possible adjectives for this tea, stout and robust didn’t make the list at all, but there’s still enough character for it to stand up to the “breakfast” category. No milk needed, but a.m. additives don’t weaken its taste or personality.

It was goooood!
Fighting a mild cold, so I tossed in a couple teaspoons of dried peppermint leaves from my own plant hoping for a Vapo-Rub vibe. Didn’t quite work—I really have to hunt for the mint taste. Wonder if it’s due to leaf-drying error on my part (I just let them air-dry.) But it’s warm on a scratchy throat.
