Placed an order with Wize Monkey recently because, firstly, I love them but also because I really wanted some of the new Chocolate Dreams tea for at home so I don’t have to keep stealing it from my manager’s tin at the office – and of course you can’t just order one thing so I actually added in every other tea from their collection that I hadn’t previously tried – which ended up being a total of three other teas.
I was hesitant about this one because I don’t love jasmine too much; in some forms it’s definitely ok but I am quite particular about it – but this was actually pretty tasty! I thought the jasmine was actually pretty light handed and I can see that maybe disappointing someone who REALLY loves jasmine, but for me it was just enough to add a nice floral touch to the smooth, buttery coffee leaf. I found the cup really easy to drink, and while it wasn’t anything super nuanced or “high concept” it was tasty and made for a very nice, easy drinking/mindless cup that just felt good.
Ultimately that’s what I want out of jasmine – relaxing, simple, and smooth. So I’m actually very surprised with just how awesome I found this one! Happy I gave it a shot!
