I steeped it too long – probably five minutes, and it was a full-bodied pure jasmine flavor. I couldn’t tell it was white tea because it still tastes strong, and my impression of white tea is that it’s mild (but that is based on conjecture rather than experience!)

Then I realized I had left the leaves in the pot, for a VERY long time, and it was very strong and astringent – completely my fault! I will add water and try it again or maybe make it into an iced tea. But even with the strong flavor I still had another cup because something about the tangy taste of jasmine somehow both calms and excites me.

Overall a great, pure jasmine tea. No other flavors.

Flavors: Jasmine

4 tsp 22 OZ / 650 ML

Tea reminds me of home and family. Black tea with milk and honey was a gift of love growing up.

I’ve since gained an appreciation for Japanese green tea and matcha, chai (brewed Indian-style in milk with a very strong black tea and spices), Kashmiri tea, and tisanes. My tastes definitely have broadened since I stopped having sugar in my tea.

Since joining steepster, my world has been transformed by Laoshan Black 1st Picking – can’t believe an unflavored tea can taste like cocoa! It made me wonder what the black tea I’ve been drinking all these years is. My current favorite is Metropolitan Tea’s Cream Earl Grey.

I also have really enjoyed the tisanes – especially Roasted Almond by Capital Teas, which I keep bringing with me to share with others.

My tea tastes are also heavily influenced by the places I’ve been… ginger tea reminds me of Southeast Asia, sage tea reminds me of Syria, very strongly brewed black tea reminds me of Iraqi family, milk chai reminds me of India… I love to rekindle the tastes of places, from home to far away, in my cup.

Loves- matcha, rose, cardamom, bergamot, saffron, almond sencha green, cinnamon, ginger, and chocolate.

I do NOT like chamomile, rooibos, genmaicha, or flavored green tea, and I have an odd relationship with hibiscus, oolong, and licorice (I like them only on select occasions).
