89 Tasting Notes
i have been wanting to try all my Jasmines at the same time and since i am starting to group my teas by category, it just got easier to up and actually do it. wasnt able to include the newly arrived swaps but this is the best of the 5 pearls in my possession.
other pearls were: Teavivre, Mark T Wendell, Tazo, and Ovation (in no particular order)
also infused some Jasmine Jazz on the side but that is for another tasting note :)
I have not been a fan of white tea even though I knew it was the least processed and of finer leaves – mainly because I could not taste anything from it (someone help me train my tastebuds, please!)
Enter this cherry-flavored tea.
It tastes so natural. Like it’s really how white tea is meant to taste! Haha, I know that sounds weird but that’s how I feel about this tea :)
*I like it so much, I think I will offer this soon as finances allow
The first time I had it, I might not have followed the directions because I didn’t care for it so much. But my mom kept on asking me to prepare some, saying that it tasted good and so I made an effort to follow the directions this time.
The liquor is dark like a black tea’s.
The flavor is pleasant enough that my dad did not object to it. He is very particular to flavors.
The extra motivation for wanting this prepared: my mom’s friend has a friend who has cancer and I gave her a 2oz pouch of this. Later on we heard that her friend was wanting to get some more of it because it helped her to feel stronger. True story :)
I have to admit: the first time I had this, I brewed it beside the Blueberries and Cream.
And I kinda liked the creamy one better while they were warm. But cooled, I liked the tartness of the Blackcurrant more!
But like the BB&C, this I feel is better than the average tea in both aroma and flavor :)
Aroma: Attractive. I had a feeling this was gonna be a good one when I was just scooping out a sample for a swap.
Flavor: It did not disappoint! I like this and would buy it again before I run out of this.
I just want to say that my first EG Cream felt kinda weird like “Is this how it is supposed to taste?” but this one was….“Mmmmm, blueberries and cream!”
I think this is better taken while warm…tho it is still yummy after cooling down :)
