1.5 teaspoons to 12 ounces of water (boiled, then allowed to cool 3 minutes) was a perfect balance. I used a teaspoon of organic honey to sweeten it a bit. I don’t drink this tea often enough – I really enjoy the subtle floral notes. It ended a little bitter, so I think I’ll shorten the steep time when we meet again.

I won’t lie – I like my tea sweet. I’m the girl dumping two packets of sugar into my jasmine tea at the sushi place, stirring it with my chopstick. Earl Grey, predictably, makes me cringe. Black teas get the milk and sugar treatment; my greens are sweetened with agave. I’ll drink loose tea, but I prefer bagged teas for convenience. I know I have a, shall we say, “unrefined” palette when it comes to these things, but I know enough to not boil the hell out of my green tea.
