drank Jasmine Golden Yunnan by thepuriTea
1199 tasting notes

I’ve got way too much tea I haven’t tried, so I put everything I haven’t had into its own box, so I can pull out new things to try, like so.

I got this as a sample with my order ages ago. I became attached to thepuriTea’s gunpowder tea through a sample so I don’t know why I haven’t had any of the others I got until now.

This is different, I’m so used to jasmine with green or white tea! When I opened the packet, it smelled really good and very unique. I had to look to Steepster for now to steep it, so I went with 4 minutes like most of the reviews said.

I’d just been eating some of those Cadbury mini eggs, and I hadn’t even noticed if there was the remains of any before I took a sip. It was like I had just eaten one again! This is chocolatey and floral at the same time. The black tea and the jasmine are really well balanced. I’m always afraid of jasmine taking over, but it’s perfect here.

The last note of the tea is pepper, and it almost tickles the tongue as the taste fades away before you just really need another sip.

In the future I may purchase some of this, because it’s really enjoyable and even relaxing.

I think I have a sample of this somewhere, too. You had me at Cadbury Mini-
Eggs. I am so glad Easter is over and they are all sold out until next year…. :D

The Target near my apartment has tons of bags still and it’s horrible. I bought one yesterday and I just realized I need a few things, and now I’m going to end up with another. Sigh.

Must. Not. Buy. More. (At least tell yourself this a few times while you are at the store, maybe it will work…)
