Hmm… I think I brewed this one a little weak. I don’t know what happened, but it’s just overall kind of weak this time. Oh well… my sample should give me a few more cups, so I can try it again at full strength, since I did enjoy this tea the first time I had it.

ETA: Occasionally I get a hint of jasmine from this cup, which I actually didn’t get the first time I had this! I guess the jasmine isn’t overpowered by everything else this time.

Jasmine & EG?! Yum! I’m slowing entering the EG waters… I’ll have to try this one. Plus it’s by TeaFrog (and clearly I love frogs). :)

I agree it’s a winning combination! I didn’t get a lot of jasmine the first time I brewed this, but it’s definitely there. I saw you liked the lavender earl grey you had recently… you also might want to try the Lavender Earl Grey from Tea District, which also has Jasmine.

Sweet – I’m in! Thanx for the tip! :)

Profile

Bio

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: I’m in LOVE with these teas.
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: Tasty teas that I enjoy, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but wouldn’t seek out. They don’t quite do it for me in one aspect or another; often just not quite my style
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.
