I’ve lightened up my tea drawer at work for the Spring and Summer! All of the heavy black teas have gone home, and I have a bunch of oolongs, greens, and whites for the warm months. I thought this one – organic jasmine, organic orange peel, and organic Pouchong – sounded like the embodiment of the warmer weather!

First a sniff – heaven!!! The three ingredients combine for a slightly sweet and flowery aroma. Now a taste – mmmmmm! The smell pretty much describes the taste. I am surprised what a subtle, delightful detail the orange peel is. It gives a touch of sweetness and flavoring that I am loving.

Second infusion: (4 min) Light. Still jasminey and a little orange peel on the end of the sip. A bit disappointed that it was so light.

Third infusion: (5 min, and I upped the water temp to 195 since the second infusion was light) Sigh. Hot water with a jasmine taste. Drinkable but..

A question! It was a delicious first infusion at 185 but when I looked up Pouchongs, some people used 195, some 205 – does anyone have any temperature opinions about this type of tea? Maybe 185 for the first infusion then 195 for the subsequent infusion? I don’t think this one can do three. Do people change temps from infusion to infusion? Halp! Tea may get a bump if I can figure out how to make it more multiple steep friendly.

I also have to say that I was very happy with my serendipiTea ordering experience. My order arrived quickly and well packed in tons of colorful shredded magazine pages! I’m thrilled with their packaging. The teas come in a recyclable box and then a “plastic” bag which is actually a vegetable material and fully able to compost. The artwork is beautiful, and the tea names are whimsical and thoughtful. They use many organic ingredients. A real pleasure to order from them :)

That tea sounds lovely! And thanks for the note about ordering & packaging, always good to know. I see this company ships overseas too, will definitely be checking them out!

I liked the name “three part poetry” – but had no idea what it meant, so I wiki-ed it – “ode generally has three parts: a strophe, an antistrophe, and an epode” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poetry#Ode; maybe everybody else knew except me but I learned something new today on steepster and your tea choice!

Steeped this at 170 for 3 minutes and I am surprises at the lightness of the brew. It has a nice jasmine flavor to it as well as a flavorful oolong base. I can taste a little bit of the orange peel at the end of the sip if I try really hard. I will have to steep the next pot for longer or hotter. Thanks to Jacqueline I have a few more cups worth to play with. The more I try jasmine teas the more I enjoy them.

I’m trying to learn to like jasmine … I’m thinking the orange sounds like a nice way to give it a little more character.

I love the name of this one!
