I’m using trying new teas as a reward system today. I have family coming tomorrow, and I have a LONG list of chores to do today. As motivation – clean the bathroom = try a new tea. Clean the kitchen = try a new tea. And so on.

This is my “finished cleaning the upstairs bathroom” tea. I wasn’t sure if I’d like it, as Jasmine is listed in the flavours, but it’s pretty good. I don’t find it overly floral, which can really turn me off. It has more of a melon-flavour, which is what I was hoping for. Not bad. There are other melon teas I prefer (Butiki’s Cantaloupe comes to mind), but this is a very drinkable flavoured white. I steeped it at a lower than suggested temp, and there was no astringency at all. I’m not sure if there would be steeped at the 90C as suggested.

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 2 min, 30 sec

Bio

I’m a vegan, board-game playing, avid reader who likes to run and/or lift weights depending on my mood (and current injuries).

I’m fairly new to tea, but my collection seems to be growing at an exponential rate. Herbals, greens, whites, and now oolongs are my teas of choice at the moment. I haven’t developed a taste for black yet (if it’s something you can develop a taste for).
