The last Oooli tea that I drank intrigued me, so when I saw them on sale in the health food store today I decided to try one of the other flavours (I think I saw four different ice tea flavours on the shelf from this company).

Lemon-flavoured iced tea is relatively common – lemon flavoured jasmine iced distinctly less so, however. It sounds a bit odd, almost contradictory, to mix a sweet, floral tea with the sour, acidic flavour of lemon; but oddly enough it works. The flavours mix into a cool, refreshing drink that isn’t ‘too’ anything. The jasmine isn’t overpowering and nor is the green tea bitter as are many iced green teas that use cheap greens for their bases. The lemon adds a subtle sour bite that contrasts nicely with the jasmine.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
