I was so excited to try this. I love both oolong and jasmine, and I especially like it when there’s no added artificial flavoring. Well this tea did not let me down! The only sad thing is this tea is now discontinued. :( I have will have to restrain myself from hoarding what I have so it doesn’t go stale on me; I have a tendency to do that. “This is so good, I need to save it!” and then you wait forever to eat or use it and it’s not good anymore. :P Anyway, on to the tea:

The jasmine undertone is perfectly done here. It accents the oolong’s floral notes but never awkwardly overpowers, altho I can definitely taste it. I can’t, however , taste the other ingredients, but that’s okay. I like it! The oolong itself leaves a wonderful silky coating in the mouth.

I love tea. I first tasted loose leaf when my grandpa brought some back from Russia and I remember just savoring it. Not sure what kind it was; all I remember is that it was loose leaf and it was good. =)

I really enjoy oolong, jasmine tea, green tea, and white tea. I have been getting more into black tea, especially those with chocolate notes! Also, chai is a constant favorite.

As far as tisanes go, I enjoy chamomile and occasionally a mint. I am interested to try rooibus and honey bush. I do prefer teas without artificial flavoring but I’m willing to try most things.

I know next to nothing about puerh, but I like what I have tried so far.

I am consistently amazed at the flavors contained in one leaf. I am on a quest to discover all of them! Slowly, though. Good tea is expensive. :P

Other things I enjoy: Books. My family. Truth. Campfires. Animal Rescue. Gardening. Sushi. Mountain biking. Documentaries. Trees. Music. Culture. Sour cream raisin pie. Not necessarily in that order. :P
