Sipdown (843)…

A calming bit of afternoon tea & a super rare green tea moment all in one. I didn’t think this was the freshest tasting jasmine tea, though to be fair it’s a sample and I can’t honestly recall how long I’ve been sitting on it. Props for being a lot more jasmine forward though, with more of a crisp vegetal finish sort of like eating a bite of really fresh iceberg lettuce. Did get a tiny bit astringent in later steeps though, when the jasmine was beginning to wain. Neither green tea or jasmine are typical tea choices for me, but what’s that thing we’re all saying right now!?

These are strange times…

I was having trouble choosing a tea to go with our sesame chicken and lomein tonight so I asked hubby to choose between a plain green and a jasmine. He chose jasmine, I chose THIS jasmine.

This is one of the newer jasmine teas sold by Teavivre and replaces (I think) what used to be their entry kevel jasmine.

It is excellent for just what we used it for – a great accompaniment to a meal. There are lots of jasmine flowers in this. They look rather pretty in the infuser and then swell to a soft white cloud. There is lots of jasmine fragrance and it tastes just as I expect Teavivre jasmine to taste – natural and not soapy or perfumey.

It was great with the food. The briskness is completely unnoticeable while one is eating and it simply seems to clear the palate. After the meal when we were sipping it on its own, the briskness is more noticeable but is not unpleasant. Indeed, it is often considered desirable specifically for its palate cleansing properties.

It was so good, we resteeped and got another nice pot of tea to enjoy.
