Late night pick me up, courtsey of Golden Moon Teas. The aroma was sweet and the liquor was bright and floral.
I adore jasmine tea (hence the screen name), and I am in search of the ultimate one to bribe myself to answer my inbox each working day. This has a nice scent but it’s too bitter for me. I waited about 15 seconds after boiling (instructions say just under boiling, something like that), exactly 1 teaspoon per cup of water (got 2.5 out of the sample), and steeped for about 4 minutes, which is on the long end of the range they recommended. I could try to steep it for 2 minutes, the short end, to tone down the bitterness, but the jasmine wasn’t strong enough to make me buy another sample. Plus, I don’t need that kind of pressure to make a perfect pot. I may not even finish the 2.5 cups I brewed.
This is a delayed post so it will be quite short.
This tea was neither good nor bad. It tasted and smelt to me just as all the other jasmine teas I’ve had did. I’m not a huge fan of Jasmine after being exposed to some teas I like far better but at one point I loved it. For me, there are flavors I like better so this is only an occasional drink.
