drank jasmine oolong by Zabar's
1353 tasting notes

Now, this is more my style. It’s the other one of the two the boyfriend’s sister bought for me.

Except… well, I’m not much of a floral fan either, but if it’s done right I’ll drink. If it’s done right, I’ll even enjoy it. It’s just not my own first choice for myself.

We tried out a pot of it on sunday, but I had made it a wee bit too strong then, so I couldn’t really tell what I thought of it.

The aroma of the leaves is quite floral, but it’s been my experience that this is the norm for jasmine stuff, so I didn’t find that too alarming. After steeping it’s actually even quite nice.

See, the jasmine scented teas I’ve had in the past have generally been green teas and then I found the floral aspect to be a bit too much in the forefront. Here, we have an oolong. Green type oolong, but just the small amount of fermentation it’s had is enough to complement the jasmine and put a wee bit of a dampener on it.

Yes, I definitely prefer jasmine scented oolong to jasmine scented green! The oolong is a heavier flavoured base for it and it takes a lot of that soap-y perfume-y dusty sort of unpleasantness out of it for me.

The other tea the boyfriend’s sister bought for me was totally not to my taste, and although this wasn’t something I would have picked for myself, it’s defintiely making up for that berry concoction. Very nice.
