Sipdown, 231. Thanks to Kasumi no Chajin for this sample!

I always welcome a new jasmine green, and I always enjoy drinking them. I admit that I tend to prefer the over-the-top, very flowery, honeysuckle sweet jasmines, but I enjoy the more plain-jane varieties as well. That’s what I would consider this one: a somewhat rough-around-the-edges jasmine, an everyday jasmine, the kind of jasmine you might drink with a meal. The green tea is grassy and vegetal, and the jasmine isn’t really sweet or even that floral, if you can imagine that for a jasmine. Again, I like this as an everyday tea, and it reminds me of the jasmine green that I did drink almost every day in China.

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
