Sipdown (114)

Am laughing because I definitely don’t have enough of this tea to make a decent sipdown. The last time I had this, I saw the amount of leaves and it was between one big sipdown then, or two smaller ones and I went with the latter.
Just enough for like… 4 or 5 sips of tea tonight? Ahh well. This is a tea that I love so much! I love anything with Jasmine; that’s what got me into tea in the first place! Sad to see it go, but that just means that I can go try other types of Jasmine teas from other companies :)

This was the first kind of tea I was introduced to back in elementary school by my mother, and I thought that Jasmine tea was the only kind of tea that existed ahha.
But I absolutely love my Jasmine tea! I only have 1 sachet left of Harney’s Dragon Pearls sooo.. I definitely need more!

Jump62359, just like you, I was introduced to tea when I was just a little girl, and of course, it was also jasmine tea!! I also thought for many years that was the only kind of tea, lol. It was that oriental design yellow tin, don’t remember the name, but they still sell it today. It is OVERWHELMING with jasmine, but it will always remind me of good childhood memories :-)

Aww so cool! I don’t remember the exact brand of my first jasmine, but the second time I went to the market with my mother, we passed by the teas and she let me pick out the tea I wanted. Of course, it was the prettiest package I could find that I could clearly see “Jasmine Tea” since like 75% of the teas were written in chinese!
Jasmine will always remind me of home, especially since we have like a jasmine arch in our backyard :)

Tea rating guide:
100-90: Best thing to ever touch my mouth and I want more. Restocking is a must
89-80: Love this tea. Restock if I can
79-70: Decent tea. Neither love nor hate.
69-60: I won’t be upset when it runs out. I’ll drink it but won’t restock.
59-30: I’ve done whatever I can to like this tea and I’ll finish the cup.
29-10: I’ve done whatever I can to like this tea. It may or may not have gone down the sink…
9-below: Let’s not even hide it. This definitely went down the drain.

I love tea.
I drink it.
I log it.
I have a good time.
Lather, rinse, repeat.

I first discovered my love for tea with Jasmine because that’s all my mother would buy, so for the longest time, I thought that all teas were jasmine! And then in 4th grade, I watched the tea episode of Good Eats and that’s when the education started! I’d like to blame Alton Brown for starting this obsession because now I only like loose leaf tea.
It wasn’t until my second year of college that I actually expanded my tea taste buds. Special shout out to Cara McGee, Queen Tea for her Adagio Fandom blends. Because of Cara, I actually started drinking blacks, herbals and whites and pretty much everything else in between. I still have a special love for my jasmine though :)
I drink tea daily. Usually just straight up, no sugar or milk with the exception of chai. I like chai with just a wee dash of milk and a sprinkle of sugar! This little obsession started young and just… kept going, I guess. I have friends who think I have a problem with tea, but I really don’t. Everything is good in moderation.
I also have a mug buying problem and I’ve got Disney to blame for that. At least all my mugs are being put to good use!

also I apologize in advance for lazy tasting notes and horrible grammar in everything I write. I’m an avid fandom blogger on tumblr we have some weird way of talking to each other and sometimes I forget that this isn’t tumblr oops
