Sip down :( I spent the day with this most marvelous of teas. I remember when Angel first offered it to me. I almost turned it down. In fact I did turn down another jasmine green she offered. I hate jasmine. Or I did. Or I still do, if it is that over-perfumed icky stuff in a bag from the grocery store. Its even been true of the few other loose leaf jasmines by other companies I have sniffed. But this, oh this, is so different. It is flowers and sunshine. Its’ taste reminds me of grapes. It is nectar. No it is Ambrosia. It is light and refreshing with a lovely green aftertaste. It is multiple steeps of delight. Oh sadness. After today it will be gone….. sigh. I must have more. The shelf life is three years. Jubilation! So what if I have 50 other open samples.

It is happy-in-a-cup. You really must get more. You can not be without it.

I thought the same about jasmine – until I had it in some really great teas! I love the SCENT of REAL jasmine essential oils though – just hate that fakey stuff! I do love their jasmine teas though!

I agree! How do you like this one compared to their jasmine silver needle?

I like this one better. The taste is close. Watching these things slowly unfurl during multiple steeps amuses me. On the silver needle I love white tea and find I want to taste it more. Fabulous tea – it is a mental thing. That make sense?
