drank Golden Jade by Teavana
4 tasting notes

I’ve never liked the smell of this tea. Quite often, when I open up the canister and take a whiff, I find myself gagging a little. It almost reminds me of an old man’s renovated basement where he keeps all of his hunting trophies and fishing rods.

That given, I actually love the flavor. A very smooth feel all the way down with the faintest smokiness. This makes one of my favorite midday teas.

I actually screwed up my second steeping – got distracted by the computer and let it sit for a little over 6 minutes, and surprisingly, it wasn’t bad at all. If anything, I like a little bitterness.

The super-sensitive nose and palate drive me more towards the lighter, more flowery teas. Jasmine is my staple and I melt for a lightly brewed Ti Guanyin.

A novice with teas but open-minded with my flavors. I’ve got lots to taste and even more to learn.
