From Stash Tea Company

From Yamamotoyama tea gardens. Jasmine is picked in the heat of the day when the tiny flowers are closed tight. The blossoms open in the cool of the evening when they are blended with the green tea leaves. A refreshing beverage.

I had the flu for the first half of this week, and didn’t feel like I would be able to keep any tea I made in my stomach long enough to really enjoy it, so I had to abstain until today. I decided to start off rather light, and made some nice jasmine tea. Sadly, I am a bit congested at the moment, so the aroma is extremely muted, but this tea held a few surprises for me.

It was interesting, because the taste of the tea was sweeter and more flowery than I remember. This might be because I took the water off when bubbles where just beginning to form at the bottom of my kettle, as opposed to boiling the water and letting it sit for a while. Another interesting surprise was there was an after taste now, where a “flowery” taste lingers at the back of the throat, and gradually disappears. I’ve never experienced this before, so it was a rather interesting and relaxing experience.

when it’s all said and done, I was rather surprised by how well is turned out, especially after having to suffer through caffeine withdrawal on Tuesday and Wednesday. Also, because of how well this tea turned out, I might start drinking it more often.

Evidently I have not, alas, yet learned to have the water cool enough and the steep short enough for green tea, so it remains my least favorite type. Disregarding the scowling tea gods, i added sugar. Jasmine scent was the best part of this cup, and recalling my recent cholesterol test, which was excellent! :)
