Last Thursday the class tasted several different teas. After trying almost all of them, I decided that the sweet, floral, and light Jasmine tea was my favorite. I ended up drinking too cups of the Jasmine tea. I loved how light it was, and although I drank my cups with honey, I tried each tea alone first, and Jasmine was by far the most bearable. It was originally sweeter than most other teas, without making me feel sick or gross, unlike how I felt after ingesting the matcha. The matcha I was most excited for, considering that I had never tried it before and was aware of the internet craze over it. However, I fear my expectations were too high because it easily let me down. The loose powder made it extremely unappealing to me, as if I had been drinking flour. The green color did not aid in its appeal either. I added milk after the first plain sip, and then sugar after trying it with just milk. However, even with all of that, I still found its cardboard-like taste unbearable. I have somewhat of a sweet tooth, so I immediately disliked teas such as Lapsang Souchong, Longjing, and Tregothnan. My least favorite happened to be the Lapsang Souchong, which I described the smell as teriyaki chicken, and the taste as bitter and meat-like. This tea was darker, just as its leaves. The leaves themselves were pungent, as I could smell them from a small distance, unlike other leaves that needed one to be quite close to be able to get a whiff. Although I added honey to this one aswell, it did not compliment the original flavor, making it worse.
