This is the first of my adventures into loose leaf green tea, as well as my first jasmine tea. I thought I wouldn’t like green tea based on some experience I had years back that I can’t even recall, but past me is sorely mistaken. The tea itself is light, which I guess makes a lot of sense, it being a green tea and all. The jasmine taste is very faint when consuming the tea, but the scent of the jasmine is fairly strong, which is awesome because I rather enjoy the smell of jasmine. It keeps for three steeps easy without losing any flavor, but I’ve never gone beyond that. All-in-all, a terrific purchase from a small local store, which I will be enjoying for a while.

The Secret Garden is just an awesome little shop. I love having it nearby.

Agreed. I really like the fact that it took me so long to find the first time I tried to go there, like some sort of hidden grove of goodness.

Bio

I’m on leave from college because making superficial relationships with hyper-competitive wunderkinds wasn’t exciting my passion. Instead, I drink tea. I like all types, but oolongs tend to be my favorites, and I’ll smack you upside the head if you put anything but lemon in my tea. My palate isn’t super experienced yet, and I don’t know exactly what I like and do not like yet, but that’s the whole fun in it right? The mystery steaming from each cup?
