1484 Tasting Notes
Mmm, good afternoon tea. Mixed the leaves in with leftover leaves from last night’s Ti Kwan Yin (Dragon Pearl Whole Teas). Hopefully that should smooth out the flavour.
Mmm, I like this tea…
Good enough quality that it is pleasurable to drink, yet cheap enough that if I get distracted and let part of the pot go cold, I do not regret it.
This tea is growing on me. Every time I make another pot of it, I begin to have more and more of a taste for it.
Good for a morning’s first pot. Went wonderfully with my spicy scrambled eggs and sharp cheddar cheese.
I have noticed that jasmine green teas go especially well with many cheeses.
Third steeping of the same leaves == weak cuppa. Oh well, it was tea. And we all know tea == good.
Had a bag of this brewed up in my little two-cup teapot.
Upon removing the bag from the packaging, the firs thing I noticed was that it smelled like raisins…
The smell upon pouring the first cup, after about three minutes of steeping, was quite floral.
Perhaps it was something I had eaten earlier, but the flavours simply did not agree with my taste buds. I like floral teas, but this is one that makes it taste as though you’re drinking liquid flowers. Not very pleasant. Might have been better with some sugar or honey (though either of those may have overwhelmed the tea itself).
Edit: I later ended up dumping the rest of the small pot after only drinking about a third of it. Some people may like this tea, but I’m afraid I’m not among them.
