Adventaggedon Day 13 – Tea 6/6
This tea was a really pleasant surprise! When I saw the description I was ingtrigued by the orange and jasmine combination, but I also wrote it off a bit because I thought it might just end up being like a jasmine green tea with a very tiny amount of orange to make it seem fun and twisted.
It’s actually more of an orange tea than a jasmine but both flavours are present. It’s a really nice bright and juicy orange with a lot of top/high notes without having sharpness or too much acidity/acridness. It reminded me of very freshly squeezed orange juice – but just the sweetness of it. Not the tang. I’d describe it as rather sunny. The jasmine adds a freshness to it, and a sophistication. All combined the flavour is cheerful and lively, but grounded and soothing – and the green tea base is a smart choice because it provides a neutral and light enough canvas for those flavours to shine while still adding some body and playing into the natural elements of the composition. I felt like I should be drinking this tea out in nature!
This may, actually, be my favourite Offblak blend yet and I am super looking forward to that next teabag of it!
