From The Tea Table

Hand-tied into an interesting group of 6 mini-rosettes, this tea is smooth and sweet with an extremely flowery jasmine flavor. Delicate, aromatic, and complex. A must-try for jasmine fans. Put one a small teapot (approximately a 2-3 cup size) and let steep in near boiling water for about 3 minutes. Add more hot water as needed. About 4 rosettes per ounce.

I bought this more for the novelty than anything else, and I am not sure I have the guts to steep for a full 3 minutes — I’ve never steeped a green tea that long and been happy with how it tasted.

In the tin, it smells subtly of jasmine — a nice fragrance, not overpowering, not artificial.

At 1:30, the liquor is almost the color of water, that is to say, virtually colorless. The jasmine flavor, though, is delicate and enjoyable.

I’ll try another steep at 3 minutes and see what happens.

After 3 minutes, the tea is a little darker, but barely. The jasmine aroma and flavor is no more intense than it was after the first steep. Fortunately, the tea isn’t bitter after this length.

I suspect I’ll hang on to these flowers longer than most teas of this rating mostly because the flowers are visually pretty.

Now for some exciting news: I counted wrong with regard to the green teas I have left to write notes about. I had a Den’s kukicha in my cupboard, but I looked through my entire stash twice and can’t find it. So I conclude I sipped it down and failed to record the sipdown.

After removing that from the cupboard and discovering that one of the jasmine teas I thought was a green was a white, I have the following left to taste and write an initial note about:

Matcha: 2
Green tea: 3
White tea: 3

Progress!
