|"This is a gritty, earthy jasmine blend."|
It's creamy with a heavy floral flavour to match the heavy aroma. There is an underlying dirt flavour, but rather than tasting like soil, it balances the strong floral tone, and it's countered with a smooth texture. My second steep is mellower and good.
This is a gritty, earthy jasmine blend. Whereas a delicate, aromatic blend is a dainty female ballerina, dancing lightly on the palate, this is a male ballerina: Throwing your tastebuds around with its raw strength. It's not subtle, it's not lacking grace. Is it my new jasmine? Not likely, but I do like that it has something to set it apart.
