drank Jasmine Green by Zhi Tea
4227 tasting notes

In my Foodzie tasting box, I received samples of two teas from Zhi, this one and the Turkish Spice Mint (I’ll be brewing that one a little later). Unfortunately, they were shipped in the same package, so I am tasting some of the mint and spice in this tea, and so I don’t think I’m getting a true representation of this tea. Therefore I won’t rate it numerically.

The green tastes light and has a moderate vegetative taste to it. The jasmine is sweet and floral, but not overwhelming or soapy. And as I said before, I can also taste hints of the mint and spice here.

I will be reviewing this more fully, together with the Turkish Spice Mint tisane on my foodie blog: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com (It will appear tomorrow afternoon)

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.


I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.


Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
