drank Jasmine Bloom by Adagio Teas
2224 tasting notes

So a friend has stopped by which has obviously slowed my tea drinking. Hopefully Roswell Strange is not using this oppurtunity to catch up!

Luckily this friend knows my love of tea and she actually asked if we could have some. Of course I jumped on the chance. She asked for a floral tea and I determined this to be the perfect oppurtunity to use of the last jasmine bloom that MissB sent me. It was a win-win because she got her floral tea and of course enjoyed the bloom and I did not have to drink a whole pot of this tea on my own.

It is tasty enough. Buttery with a hint of floral but not something I want a whole pot of. So we have been talking over a pot of tea and it is lovely. Also we shared a laugh over this pretty hilarious video:

Thanks MissB!

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
