This is the first of my adventures into loose leaf green tea, as well as my first jasmine tea. I thought I wouldn’t like green tea based on some experience I had years back that I can’t even recall, but past me is sorely mistaken. The tea itself is light, which I guess makes a lot of sense, it being a green tea and all. The jasmine taste is very faint when consuming the tea, but the scent of the jasmine is fairly strong, which is awesome because I rather enjoy the smell of jasmine. It keeps for three steeps easy without losing any flavor, but I’ve never gone beyond that. All-in-all, a terrific purchase from a small local store, which I will be enjoying for a while.

The Secret Garden is just an awesome little shop. I love having it nearby.

Agreed. I really like the fact that it took me so long to find the first time I tried to go there, like some sort of hidden grove of goodness.
