1 rounded TB for 500mL water, drunk bare (nothing added).
As others have noted, jasmine does a cheery ‘Ta-da!’ when you open the tin. And that’s great.
I set the timer but couldn’t repond right away and ended up with more of a 4-minute steep. With that length of a steep, a new scent wafts up from the brew: line-dried white shirts. That incredibly clean scent you only get in summer when you, that’s right, hand white shirts on the line to dry in the sun and the wind. I love that.
The longer steep thickens the body a bit; any longer and it might get soapy. I’ll probably water this cuppa down a bit. But oh, that clean, irreplacable lovely jasmine. I can taste more of the green tea base today, too: a sweet green, as others have pointed out, thank goodnes, not grassy and not briny.
Jasmine fabness. One of the best I’ve tried. Up there with some of the jasmine pearls.
