1108 Tasting Notes
I was thrilled to see this in my most recent package of samples from Nina’s since I’m such a big fan of jasmine teas! I don’t believe I’ve ever tasted lotus in a tea before. I’m not sure I can pick it out over the jasmine flavor/scent. This is a particularly flowery jasmine! The base tea is a little richer and heavier and less sweet than my beloved jasmine pearl teas. Nice if you are in the mood for something with a little more body to it! This is basically a fancier version of the basic jasmine tea they serve at my favorite Chinese restaurant. Classic and sophisticated :)
Not a bad puerh! I wasn’t expecting much out of this since it was free and all (just paid for shipping) but it actually turned out to be a good smooth non-fishy cup of pu! I probably should have cut the cube in half, I am not sure I will be able to drink enough cups during the day at work today to use up these leaves. Might have to take them home after work and do a cold steep as ashmanra suggested :D
Thanks a bunch Red Leaf Tea!
