drank Jasmine Tea by Fujian Tea
5 tasting notes

I just moved to San Francisco, and in the neighborhood I live in, this stuff is everywhere! Everywhere, as in any store with goods from South East Asia. This has been a really refreshing add.

For the price, it’s worth it. I use it as a nice relaxer at the end of the day if I don’t want to have to put too much care into a perfect cup. A little box of this kept me alive when I went home to Ohio for three months, where, “Isn’t that supposed to be in a bag?” would be easy to hear.

Not the highest quality, sure. It’s got a good realistic jasmine aroma. I’ve steeped it a number of different ways, and I enjoy about 2-2.5 or 3 minutes at 175 the best. Don’t listen to the package. I don’t know what they’re talking about. Flowery aroma, slightly earthy taste, smooth if steeped shorter. A satisfying tea.
