Good evening, tea drinkers!
With the bustle of December and our lives rarely overlapping these days, we reviewed today’s tea via text yet again. We promise tomorrow we will sit down in the morning and share our cups together again. Right, Stacey? Good. For now, enjoy our banter on a floral brew with a mythical name and an elegant taste!
Tea: Silk Dragon Jasmine
Description: Made from premium green tea, our Silk Dragon is a limited-edition treasure. To create it, night-blooming jasmine is gathered in the morning and kept cool all day. In the evening, when the flowers burst open and release their scent, they are placed with the tea until midnight. This is repeated with fresh flowers over the course of five nights, infusing the tea with a most magical flavour.
Ingredients: Organic Chinese green tea from Jianxi Province, naturally scented with jasmine flowers.
Steeping Instructions: 1.25 tsp, 80°C, 2-3 minutes
Stacey: Very earth today!
Brooke: Yeah? I just like that it has the word ‘dragon’ in it.
Stacey: Mhm, very majestic. You taste the green tea base and the jasmine hits you hard.
Brooke: Does it ever smell like grandma perfume! I mean, I would never wear it or want the scented lotion… but it’s quite comforting.
Stacey: We had this tea last year and you said almost the exact same thing.
Brooke: WELL. At least the tea and I are consistent.
Stacey: Oh. Well, yes.
Brooke: Last time I thought it was a little bitter but today I steeped it perfectly and it’s just right! Earthy is a great way to describe this base.
Stacey: I think my water was too hot again.
Brooke: But what about the pour-it-into-another-cup-and-then-back-again-to-cool-it-down technique?
Stacey: I didn’t do it, last time I burnt myself. : (
Brooke: Aw, poor boo.
Stacey: You know, this tea makes me feel more exquisite somehow.
Brooke: I totally get you, gurl.
Brooke spoke the final texts into her tablet and they were translated as such:
Brooke: With the amount of flowers in this planned, it really hits you like a bouquet. It’s been an iced tea and I have it again if I was meeting someone coming with no spices and fruits. Seven and a half on 10.
Stacey: The key is cozy and sweet potatoes but flowery. Really, its green tea base live in the up a simple flavour and brings it to something exquisit, he taunted.
With a few days left until the roomies split up for the holidays, hopefully we can get in a few more brews together (we taunted).
Until next tea,
Brooke and Stacey
