Sipdown!

Decided to do this one iced today. Placed the rest of my tea leaves in a mason jar and kept it in the fridge overnight. Pretty good but got bitter for the long steep. Not the best quality jasmine. Only $12 for a 2oz bag so in line with price and quality with the basic “house” jasmines out there.

Not quite as delicate as previous Jasmine’s I’ve had. Good but the Jasmine Pearls from Asha is better! Still a delicious Jasmine though :)

Definitely making a dent in my tea stash, which is always a good thing!

I only have enough of this tea to have one more cuppa. After that, I’ll only have maybe 5 more Jasmines in my collection hahaha. Gotta get me some more! This is def my fave type of tea to have before bed.

Went to the dentist this morning bc of my messed up gum and they said it was nothing to worry about… Legit I told them that I noticed it when I all of a suddenly started drinking tea again and they said that the tea had nothing to do with it!

Recently I’ve been craving Jasmine as I relax before going to bed. Luckily the caffeine in the tea doesn’t affect me all that much! This one has been my go-to tea since it’s not necessarily my favorite, but it’s still a cup that I enjoy!

Also not sure if I mentioned this in a previous note, but my boyfriend and his team started cleaning out someone’s desk (she left to go to a different location a couple months ago so they figured she probably forgot about all her stuff and they’d be safe cleaning out her desk). They found a tin of matcha, Teavana’s double-walled glass matcha bowl, and a matcha whisk. No one knew how to use it but Alex figured I did! So he took it home as a surprise gift to me hahaha. The matcha bowl itself, I could tell just by looking at it, does a terrible job of being a matcha bowl. The bottom comes to a somewhat point and it’s narrow. It does do a pretty good job of being an oversized teacup though!

Well, that’s a Teavana matcha bowl for you. muhaha.

I remember when I first drank Jasmine I would steep it for literally a minute because I liked it super watered down. Tonight, I had it go for 3 minutes and still felt like there could be a bit more flavor to it so I threw the leaves back in…. and then accidentally forgot about them… oops.

The color is a lot more golden than I would have liked, but it’s at least not ruined! Tons of Jasmine flavor since it was steeping for maybe 6 minutes.

Sidenote: I love Disney+ and I’ve watched over 7 hours of Lizzie McGuire over the course of the past two days. Considering the fact that I worked yesterday and didn’t get home till 9…. yeah.. that’s a lot ahaha.

A bummer that my packaging came a tad bit opened, but the tea itself is great. The flavours subtly develop with time into intensely flowery.

Flavors: Caramel, Champagne, Flowers

Prominent bright, fruity notes in the first steep. More traditional Assam flavors come out in subsequent infusions. As astringent as a Darjeeling. I started at a bit over a minute and went up to 2 minutes on the third infusion — still flavorful.

I LOVE this tea.
I went to my first tea house everrrr with my mom and sister in San Francisco. I had such a great time and we are all rarely together and it was just so special. It is the first gong fu style tea I’ve had also. My mom and I shared this jasmine tea and nom! It is so fragrant and definitely the most delicious jasmine tea I have EVER had.

We bought a 2 oz pack and I ordered myself a gaiwan tea set and I am drinking this as we speak. It is far too strong but I think I am just brewing it for too long. I definitely need to test it out. Right now I’ve been doing the suggested 1 minute but it’s definitely too long. I am going on my third steep so I will bring the time down. I have just been watering it down because it is too bitter. Im sure this is like against all tea laws but I did it anyway.

If you are in the San Francisco, go to Asha! I think they also have a place in Berkeley.

Flavors: Floral, Jasmine

Had this tea in SF today! My mom, sister, and I had this tea and their Jasmine Pearls as a tea set. Ahhh I would highly recommend going to Asha, and if you have some time to spare, purchase tea as a tea set! Mine, they served it on a traditional tea boat with a yixing clay pot, serving pot, and a sipping cup! My mom and sister shared the Jasmine tea. They had it in a gaiwan, and the serving pot and two sipping cups.

This tea was so good! This was the first time I actually had tea gong fu style, and it was fab. Though it had that dark, earthy taste to it, it still was pretty light and smooth.
((what is this tasting note I am so sorry. I was just so impressed by the presentation of the tea and the lovely and chill atmosphere that I forgot to pay attention to the tea itself ops))

I’m home just for a week for a mini vacation! My family and I went wine tasting and shopping and all things fab. Today was our San Francisco day :))
My mom, sister, and I made it a mission to go to some sort of tea lounge and found this cute tea place called the Chai Bar (which had Steph Curry tea [my sister and dad are huge Warriors fans]) but sadly, it was closed to Presidents Day. I went to yelp, and found Asha Tea just a block or two away from our next destination! So away we went and we stayed there for a good hour or so until we decided to get lunch and finish up shopping :)

Finishing the last of this tasty yunnan in my collection this morning. I should just stick to buying straight black teas and ditch everything else. They are the only ones I seem to drink on a regular basis!

What about Pu erhs? I remember quite a few excellent reviews about those type of tea.

I picked this up from the new Asha Tea House in San Francisco, which is just a short walk from my office downtown. So far I’ve had their houjicha latte and lemon jasmine iced green tea to go, both were really good.

I decided to pick some of this up today because yunnan blacks are definitely a favorite of mine and it couldn’t hurt to have another breakfast tea. I steeped it for 2 minutes with boiling water per package directions and am drinking it plain.

This is a nice, rich black tea that doesn’t have much bitterness at all. I am getting chocolate plus a bit of tobacco aroma & flavor. I don’t normally sweeten my tea but I ended up putting a small amount of sugar in this, and that brought out even more chocolate-y and roasted notes. A very good everyday drinker, for the morning or anytime. Happy with this purchase!

This tea was the other highlight of my trip to San Fran. Its not often you find a really good high quality black tea, and Red Ruby delivery. I was able to brew around 15 times in the gaiwan and it still held its flavor and color.

This is a lovely complex black tea with maraschino cherries, and a lovely wintergreen aroma/taste (that I often associate with the Uva region of Sri Lanka).

Well worth its money, this Red Ruby is much better than some black teas I’ve seen trying to pass for Sun Moon Lake.
