drank Jasmine Oolong by Teavana
260 tasting notes

Phew. Okay. Better. I’ve never had that strong of a negative reaction to tea before. I cooled the water down a bit more and steeped it for a shorter time. The taste became a lot more subtle and it’s not nearly as bitter. In fact, I’m even getting the slightest hint of sweetness in the aftertaste that I like in jasmine tea.

However, I’m still getting a little bit of that spinach in the taste and the smell. Not that there’s anything wrong with spinach, I just don’t like it with my tea. And sometimes I get this strange, almost metallic taste sitting at the tip of my tongue. Bizarre.

Anyhow, can’t say I hate it, but definitely can’t say I love it. Pales in comparison to the Jasmine Pearl I had yesterday.
