drank Jasmine Tea by Fujian Tea
112 tasting notes

I was busy when we made this so I kinda forgot about it while it was sitting right next to my laptop :/. I think that probably affected the taste, but I’ll try to be as objective as possible.

I get a nice, fresh, floral aroma from the cup. I can’t say it’s specifically jasmine, but seems fresh enough. Unfortunately, I also get a ton of bitter green tea smell too. I think, largely, that’s a result of me letting it sit so long before drinking it, but I also think to some extent it as to do with the tea. It’s just too bitter and not flavorful enough to compensate for the bitterness. The instructions say boiling water for 7 mins which seems like a lot for green tea , so I think it could just be a lower quality tea. It was also pretty cheap :)

I’m going to have to give this one another shot sometime…just don’t know when.

Yeah the instructions confused me too. I generally nix the boiling water and that seems to make it taste decent.

Very true. I just need a variable temp kettle now. The one I have is not very exact….basically boiling and not boiling :(

Boil the water, take it off the heat source, let set for about 15 minutes, then try steeping the tea, but for about 3 or 4 mins. The first time I had this was at a friend’s house and she just murdered the tea. It can actually be quite good, but you have to be gentle with it.
