drank Jasmine Green Tea by Ito En
16 tasting notes

I had this tea and was ready for it to taste great but I have to say it was beyond great. I’m beginning to think this might be my tea of choice for summer.
Teas’ Tea Green Jasmine smells like jasmine from the moment you open the bottle. I didn’t feel the need to add sweetener to the drink. If I had I’m sure the flavors would have popped just as it should. I did add it to ice but drank it quickly.
Note: The bottling is different than what is listed in the above picture.
This is what my bottle looked like. http://www.itoen.com/tea/index.cfm?sp=product&catID=1&id=105

Bio

Like most everyone I started out drinking Lipton tea. On a trip back to my home state of Oregon, I discovered Stash Tea Company. I liked them because they were from my home state and the flavors that I found. =) On a trip to Paris, France, I stopped by Mariage Freres. I had my “Ahhh” moment. The gentleman asked what I liked – at the time Earl Grey. My eyes went wide when he picked up this barrel of tea & shook it, opened the lid and said smell. I was in love. My first taste of loose leaf tea was Imperial Earl Grey. I took a break from tea but continued to drink Stash Tea.
Another door to explore opened with the discovery of Jane Pettigrew’s The Tea Companion: A Connoisseur’s Guide. I started marking off the teas I tasted in her book. I have purchased other tea books as well but Jane’s book has been the one I have always returned to for teas. I had the pleasure of picking up Jane’s new updated version of the book at the World Tea Expo. I look forward to tasting more teas. =)
