drank Hanami Imperial by THE O DOR
335 tasting notes

Tried this at a patisserie. Hanami literally means “flower viewing”. It’s what the Japanese do in spring: partying with friends and family under blooming sakura trees. So, I was expecting a beautiful, sakura-scented tea. The dry leaves did have the aroma of sakura, which was lovely even though I knew it came from flavouring. Yet sadly this didn’t translate into the liquor… the tea was very light and the sakura flavour was weak. I almost forgot I was drinking tea after a while. :( Disappointing!

Bio

A devilish girl who lives up to the post-80s youth stereotype – hedonistic, frivolous and rebellious – except I love traditional afternoon tea rather than a quick caffeine fix at Starbucks.

I make a living off others’ criminal activities. It’s a busy job and I really wish I could retire, so I can become a full-time afternoon tea connoisseur instead. :j

I love any tea that has nice scent, great flavour and lovely packaging. My current top favourite brands are Mariage Freres, T2, and THE O DOR. ;)

I am now practising mindfulness as a way of living. I decide to use tea tasting as a means to meditate in my daily life. My tasting notes here will therefore be my meditation notes :)

I’ve got no time to update my Pinterest and blog since I became a mom. Nevertheless, if you feel curious, you are most welcomed to visit these abandoned pages:
