715 Tasting Notes
Cousin came to stay last weekend for a concert and we had quite a bit of tea. She wasn’t feeling well the day before her flight so she mentioned to my sister if we can get some tea for her! I packed them up and put them in some miniature tins and of course, I gave her my fave Jasmine of all time :)
This was one of the many teas we had during her stay!
I think I’m going to have to lay low on the tea drinking rn bc my teeth started hurting… I think the sudden change of basically exclusively drinking hot tea during the day shocked my body and now my teeth and gums are pretty sensitive to anything hot or super cold!
Oh well. Still planning on enjoying tea, even though it’s not as often as I would like!
This is basically my favorite jasmine ever! Super light and delicate, and I just love how it’s uniquely rolled! This one in my current collection is maybe a year or two old, but it still tastes delicious! Not quite as delicate as I remembered, but I know that’s coming from the age of it.
A tea I got from the Marco Polo TTB years ago. It was basically vacuum sealed in the bag so the quality of the tea didn’t really diminish as the years went by…
Poured the tea straight into my glass teapot and when the leaves unfurled, it looked AMAZING! And it tastes pretty great too :) Definitely getting some grassy/vegetal notes from this tea.
Got it from the Marco Polo TTB aaaaages ago. For how long I’ve had this tea, it didn’t taste old so I am very very happy :)
You know me I love my jasmine! Super fresh and super nice. More of a stronger Jasmine flavor which I quite enjoy!
Another old tea, the color isn’t as green as I would have expected it to be and I know it’s because of the age of this. 100% regret the fact that I didn’t drink this when I got it!
Even though it’s old, it still tastes delicious. The flavors are a bit muted but I can tell that it’s there. Had it been a fresh batch of tea, I know it would have been delicious!
