I bought a sampler of this nine years ago from Adagio, and honestly forgot about it in the back of my cabinet. I discovered it earlier this month, and surprisingly it is still a decent cup. The jasmine flavor is still very strong, which is good because I’m sure the tea itself is well past its prime. I tried an improvised gongfu (teacup and saucer for a gaiwan) for the first time with this today with. Trying to practice the technique with this before trying it with better teas.

1) I’m new to tea, and not at all a tea expert.
2) I don’t like astringency, and it doesn’t like me. Therefore, as a rule, I don’t like brisker, bolder teas.
3) As a rule I drink green and white teas straight, and I have black teas with cream and sugar. I haven’t had enough oolong tea yet to know how I like them.

Guide to my simplified ratings:
15 – No.
35 – I can see why others would like this, but I can’t force myself to finish the cup
55 – Not one I would buy again, but I will finish a cup
75 – A tea I might drink occasionally
85 – A tea I could drink every day
95 – A near perfect tea
