Reading some of the other tasting notes for this tea, it’s funny to see how often this was one of the first loose leaf teas people tried….it was one of mine too ;) I got this from our international grocery store back when I didn’t know anything at all about loose tea. By now my stash of this tea is a couple years old (I know…I should have drank this a long time ago), but the taste has held up pretty well. I decided to make a tasting note now after all this time after “rediscovering” this in my stash…apparently I used waaaaay too much leaf and water that was too hot the first time around. It’s like a different tea – and a lesson to pay closer attention to steeping conditions :P

The jasmine flavor/aroma is really strong and tasty without being too “flowery,” and it has enough body that I like it as an after-lunch tea. I should try this iced.

Not the first for me, a friend gave me some Market Spice Tea from Seattle.
This was my second though… :)
You sum this one up well!

It’s always nice when “first” teas don’t (for lack of a better word) suck :)

Bio

I’m a 25 year old software developer working from home in (mostly) sunny Southern California. The best part of it all is being able to use my zojirushi for an endless supply of tea…mwahahaha….

I drink mostly pure green, oolong and black tea – but I have been known to fall in love with the occasional flavored tea (I’m looking at you, Lupica Melon Oolong).

My rating scale is rather arbitrary, since I find it kind of hard to compare teas on a numerical scale. The text part is much more useful…provided I can figure out how to describe the tea.

The rest of my time I spend in yoga, zumba, hanging out with my beagle and husband, cooking, reading, trying to learn to draw, and attempting to not play Skyrim. I’m never going to finish that one.

The only teas I stay away from are rooibos, since that gives me a weird headache thing. Other than that, I’ll try anything once.
