This is my first jasmine tea. When I opened the bag, I found the smell of the dry leaves not very appealing. I don’t know why but in my mind jasmine smelt totally different from this. I remember having jasmine green tea at a restaurant a few years ago and maybe my memories got messed up.

But now that I have had this tea several times, I find that it is very light and soothing. Brewing this gong fu style seems to be the best way to enjoy this as it tastes better when infused for a very short amount of time. It also holds up very well for several infusions (at least 5 in my experience).

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C

Bio

I started drinking tea only a few years ago and I enjoy it because there are so many different kinds to try. I love to step out of my comfort zone and taste a wide variety of flavours. I am very curious about the different types of tea and how they are processed. I also appreciate traditional or antique teaware.

This is how I rate teas:
100 : Extraordinary delicious
81-99 : Very good, I enjoy it a lot
66-80 : Good, but not in my favorites
51-65 : Ok, not impressed
36-50 :Disappointing but it isn’t bad
16-35 : I don’t enjoy drinking it
0-15 : Absolutely disgusting, I can’t drink it

In addition to being a tea drinker, I am a foodie, a traveler, an historical junkie, a geek that loves to play video games, a bookworm and a cat lover :)

English isn’t my first language so I hope I’m not butchering it too much!
