drank Jasmin Mandarin by Lupicia
268 tasting notes

Quick note: I don’t like Jasmin very much but this one, it wasn’t the Jasmin that bothered me. There was a strong medicinal taste. Tasted artificial, tasted off. Hmm…

Not going to rate it because I don’t care for Jasmin and there was nothing else positive for me to give it a rating. I won’t ding it negatively because there are some that like the medicinal taste. I don’t.

Flavors: Herbs, Jasmine, Medicinal

The name of this tea sounds amazing. I envision a sweet mandarin-flavoured tea overlaid with with light jasmine. I gather I am wrong. Haha.

hehe Maybe it was just me… I’m just really turned off by anything remotely medicine-like. o.O lol

I’m about the only person I know who hates cough drops (Halls) because they taste too medicinal, so I imagine I’d feel similarly about this tea.

Bio

Longtime casual tea drinker. In the past, mainly Sencha, Matcha. I’m currently into Oolong & Pu’erh.

Gongfu cha is the main way I prepare my tea (gaiwan or Yixing teapot). I drink all tea… Usually unflavored. I do try some flavored now. Just as long as it doesn’t have any artificial sweetener.

Favorite stores: TeaVivre, What-Cha, Mandala Tea, Yunnan sourcing, White2Tea, Lupicia. (Note: I love the teaware from TeaVivre and Yunnan sourcing.) Good experiences with 52Teas, Harney & Sons, Whispering Pines

Flavors I dislike are artificial flavors, especially artificial sweeteners. Strong lavender, violet, any strong floral-perfumey tea; cantaloupe, ripe papaya, sweet honeydew.

Can handle a little of the following: Rose, licorice, anise, jasmine, mint, spearmint, peppermint, leather.

Favorite flavors: Citrus fruits (especially grapefruit & tangerines), granny smith apple, bananas, guava, mango, tamarind, watermelon, stonefruits, all fruits except cantaloupe, chocolate, caramel, vanilla, milk, cinnamon, creme, bread, nuts, toasted, roasted.

I generally don’t add anything to my teas.

As I explore, my ratings may shift. 90+ generally means I’ll keep it on my shelf.
