I wanted to pick a special one for my 100. tasting note. Flowering one makes most sense.
It was a random pick: Jasmine Fairy.

Hope it doesn’t taste very jasmine-like ;)

Tea is very bright and yummy. Like white tea that’s smooth and slightly nutty. And flowery. Nice flavor. I’m not getting the bad side of jasmine here. Flower is quite nice but i got pics and video to show that. I intended to film the whole opening of the flower but managed to f* up (pardon my bad manners) the process. So there’s a clip with just a bit of it and a pic…

Congrats on the 100th! I enjoyed the short video, but I’m not a big flowering tea fan, so the shortness didn’t bother me. I did like the music a lot :D

Oh, and I swear that you could put your little fishie teacup in any photo (ick level up to and including a crime scene) and it’d make me smile. It’s rather silly how happy it makes me when it makes a guest appearance in one of your photos. ;)

Bio

born with a bit of a restless, curious and exploring spirit ;) love to travel and i do it a lot lately. enjoy good food and drinks. love trying out new stuff. just about to start exploring the world of teas and i’m really enthusiastic about it ;)

EDIT 4 months later:
still a n00b here but starting to get it ;) i try to buy loose tea but i got a lot of teabags too cuz it’s easier to find here. from not liking black tea ended up love it. green can be quite good too but waiting for more real ones to try. whites are sometimes awesome, sometimes not, rooibos and fruity blends are a good replacement for juices… and so on… still excited about every new tea… loving it more every day :D

since my favorite hobby is photography i take photos whenever something is interesting. including my tea making process…

Rating system (i’ll try to use it from now on):
0-20 sorry, can’t do it. ewwy
20-50 i’ll drink it if i have to, i f not no ty
50-70 its not bad, quite drinkable
