I got that package that got stuck on the customs office and that i didn’t even recall ordering. I was totally surprised with the content. Awesome modern tins and nicely packed samplers. Plus a nice postcard thingy and an actual short story inside one of the tins.

the short story thing

I picked one of 5 samplers with my eyes closed. Idk if the sampler content is for one or two teacups. I just read. It’s one teapot each sampler. I ordered the Introduction collection with White Silver Tip, Jasmine Silver Tip, Green Leaf Tea, Oolong, Emperor’s Breakfast. Plus i got a tin of whole leaf white and a tin of Lost Malawi.

After opening the pack strooooong jasmine scent. But more flowery and less ewy smelling than some of the jasmine’s that i couldn’t drink. They said themselfes that the 2ns steep is even better than the first. We shall see.

I’ll leave half of it for another time. Looks too much. Specially considering my jasmine weakness.
Lets go…
1st steep 4 minutes
The color is very light. Almost none. Smell is gentle floral similar to the leaves just more delicate. Taste is omg yummy. Seriously. How to describe this. I hate most jasmine teas i’ve tried so far but this goes beyond. It’s the most floral thing i’ve ever tasted. Its so sweet and taste so frakkin good. That floral taste sticks in my mouth like a drug or something. I can’t believe i just fell totally in-love to a jasmine tea. But i did. Omg gotta go let somebody else try it. They managed to make a tea i love from something i pretty much hate. How awesome is that?!

This one is a must have! Too bad i just got a sampler. Gonna order more for sure. Till then i’ll have to steep out every yummy drop of this one ;)

Can’t wait to try their other teas. Rare Tea Company rocks!

Between the Smurf sheets (which I utterly adore and somewhat covet) and the fishie teacup, and the super-cool tea packaging — I dub this a super-mind-blowingly-awesome note :D And hooray for a nummy jasmine!

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):
