I notice that many who have tried this tea have tried it in Sachet form … mine is loose leaf.

This is an excellent jasmine green, but then, that should come as no surprise, as everything that I’ve tried from Steven Smith has been awesome. Sweet, lovely floral essence, but not too overpowering. The jasmine is gentle. The green tea has a lightness to it… after my Keemun just a bit ago, which I would consider to be a very winter-y kind of tea, this tea is very much like springtime, when everything is fresh, green and new.

Loving this.

:O I swear you must be psychic! I just saw this today at the store and had never heard of the brand and didn’t write it down. But here it is! lol

Steven Smith is a rock star in the tea world! He started Stash tea and Tazo tea!

Oh that’s way cool! I never would have known that. I have to say that I was impressed by the packaging also. It was hard walking away from that wall! There was this, Harney and a few tins of Marco Polo (which I haven’t tried yet).

Glad to read this! I noticed that Southern Season has started carrying his teas. I will have to try some now.

I did admire the packaging when last I saw this review. And this teamaker is in Oregon if I recall; his story is similar to the Tea Forte CEO and to Davids’ Tea owner; well perhaps not, he is from Canada and branching in the U.S., New York specifically at this time. Originally Ontario.

I was just saying I adore the packaging of tea. As I have yet to submit to another Jasmine tea. Some are quite unpleasantly strong…like those perfume counters at department stores…Pew!

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:
http://sororiteasisters.com

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:
http://www.teareviewblog.com

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.
