drank Jade Fire by Rishi Tea
39 tasting notes

I really want to like this one because it’s so pretty. Looking at the shape of the leaves and smelling the brew, I was expecting something between a jade oolong and gunpowder. I need to try the first steep again when I am not so sleepy, as I don’t quite remember it. The taste was good… not much of a surprise. Hardly worth $90/lb though (don’t worry, I only got $1.80 worth).

2nd and 3rd steeps went down easy and the astringency settled my slightly upset stomach, but I’m getting this salty aftertaste in the back of my throat after two small cups. Did I just drink some sea water? Pickle brine? Strange.

I am lucky enough to make my living as a martial arts teacher and as a barista. When I’m not training or making cappuccinos, I relish cooking, reading, growing plants, and of course, drinking tea.

I love greens the most… the grassier the better! I also love oolongs and whites. I have a weak spot for anything with jasmine, mint, or lavender.
