Oh my. Just when I said in my previous review that I don’t especially like jasmine teas, I tasted this one. Oh my again. I think this is what jasmine tea is really supposed to be like. The scent of jasmine and very good quality green tea mix together forming a beautiful and enjoyable combination. The jasmine here is not sharp, and the scent is not as overpoweringly sweet as it has been in some cheaper teas. When I smell this one… I never quite knew jasmine tea could smell like this – it’s just wonderful. The scent is really soft and fully rounded, managing still to be delicate at the same time. This is no doubt the best jasmine tea I’ve ever had, and this actually makes me like jasmine tea! :)

I fell in love with tea some years ago. I have never liked coffee much, and when I really started to learn about tea, I was just enchanted.

I love to try different teas and to find new expereriences. My current favourite is oolong tea from Taiwan, but other staple items in my cupboard include darjeeling, chai, some fine green tea and of course white tea for those delicate moments.

I was thinking how to grade teas here in my tealog, and for now I decided to rate every cup in a separate log (so that e.g. 1st & 2nd steeps probably are found as separate notes). The scale I composed for myself for giving the smiley/number grade, is about the following:

0-20 No no! Why on earth do I have this tea? And what made me drink it? This is bad. As bad as bad goes.

21-40 Better than worst. But still not very close to good. I might just finish the whole cup of this, but will not drink it again, if avoidable.

41-60 Your basically ok tea. Not a very special experience though.

61-80 Very nice and drinkable tea. Enjoyable.

81-100 One of the best teas I’ve tasted, would definitely like to have more!
