Sample 14/19! (Glad to say that there are more samples on the way).
I’m up early this morning because Lindsey had a dream that she tapped a dog’s forehead and named it “Akeem”, but she actually tapped my forehead in her sleep and mumbled something unintelligible. It was a pretty funny way to wake up!
I was excited to try this jasmine tea since I’m such a fan usually. Right off the bat, though, the dried leaves had the wrong jasmine scent. It reminds me more of the numi jasmine smell than any other of the jasmines I’ve tried. Its a little heavier and smells more like a candle or even kind of like a candy/bubblegum/fruit – not the same light/air-y perfume-y jasmine that I expected. Unfortunately, the tea had that same smell. The tea itself was very mild but a little bitter – definitely a green tea, of course. I followed the brewing instructions, but I wonder if I would have liked it better at a lower temperature. Either way, this tea was fine, just didn’t live up to my very high expectations for jasmine pearls! :)
Flavors: Bitter, Candy, Jasmine
