This was one of the first green teas I had ever tried, off a recommendation from a good friend. I tried it from the cafe section of T2, since the retail price for the tea is a little steep. The workers at the cafe made it with boiling water, which was kind of dumb, considering this IS green tea. However the delicate aroma struck me instantly, which was no doubt the best part of the experience. As I waited for it to cool down, it was rather entertaining watching the buds dance open inside the teacup. The taste was a little disappointing, but not unbearable. the combination of Jasmine and Hand picked green tea leaves were cool, but I personally didn’t enjoy the taste, as much as the rest of the drinking experience. (The next time I had this tea however, the taste had grown massively on me.

It really does need to be brewed at a lower temperature – usually they know better. Sad for it to have been wrecked by improper preparation. Amazing to relax with – this tea. You’re right about the aroma. It’s extremely memorable.
