248 Tasting Notes
I keep opening and closing the tin because I don’t know how to describe the dry tea smell. It’s… odd. I have no idea. Once steeped it is quite sweet. I was quite surprised when I first tasted it because it was not at all what I thought it was going to taste like. It’s okay for the most part. I can taste the subtle hints of different flavors but there’s just something I can’t quite put my finger on that makes it not very appealing. I think perhaps it is the ginger that gives it the off flavor. I love ginger but for some reason it just doesn’t mix well in this tea.
This is one of my favorite teas. The best part is the after taste. I love how the ginseng lingers on your taste buds. It’s such a smooth tea it’s easy to drink at any time. The pre-brewed smell is a little funky.
The version I have is not Joy’s tea brand but I am not sure of who made it cause I can’t find it in their online store (Cooks of Crocus Hill – Goods and Goodies)
Jasmine was my starter tea. It’s easy to drink with honey or without. It also blends well with other teas. This Jasmine tea is mellow and full of Jasmine flavor. I still prefer this one with honey then without though. It’s also good cold. In order to fully appreciate the Jasmine flower flavor I had to let the tea cool down.
