drank Jasmine by Ten Ren
8 tasting notes

This jasmine is amazingly 香 and thick in its scent plus sweet and honey-like in its taste as soon as it cools down, but the taste gets a little too flat a little too quickly.

Flavors: Honey, Lychee

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 8 min or more

drank Ceylon by Whittard of Chelsea

Quite nice and silky. This is one of those teas that gets better with re-soaking.

Use this with a tea infuser ball or a really good filter — otherwise the shavings get everywhere.

Flavors: Caramel, Dates, Vanilla

Preparation

YUM YUM YUM! This tea was perfect this time! Plus it stays flavorful even after repeatedly re-soaking it (in my new Japanese thermos, yay!). It even gets a creamy texture, almost of the condensed milk variety, that slides down my throat smoothly. Definitely helped with a sore throat. Unfortunately I’m running out, so I might have to restock it soon.

Flavors: Cream, Stewed Fruits

Still amazing, even when over-steeped. Nice and smooth finish with a very golden, almost Kona coffee-ish undertone. The flavor lasts, too, even after two re-soaks.

Flavors: Cream, Espresso

Oops. I was in a rush when I prepped this tea and forgot about it until class time, so it was way over-steeped. This would probably be why it was way too cinnamon-y.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Tobacco

Boiling 8 min or more

This one’s really a hit or miss — although the same can be said of my tea steeping skills. Sometimes, it’s perfection and sugar mixed together in a heady, velvety cup, but other times it’s nauseatingly sweet and fruity.

Bio

Hi! I’m a coffeeholic-turned-tea-addict, though my experience with tea doesn’t extend much past re-steeped home go-to pots and dim sum restaurant cups — although I am fascinated by the history of tea because, hey, wars were fought over this stuff, right? Regardless, my tea-steeping and tea-pouring etiquette could REALLY use some work. Hopefully this website will change that!
