Generally, I’m not a huge fan of jasmine greens – Chinese greens have a tendency to come across as salty or briny to me, making my tongue tingle unpleasantly. But this one really isn’t bad. It’s fairly standard but, while hot, it is nicely smooth with no bitterness or salty tingle. The jasmine blends fairly effortlessly with the tea, giving it a very nice balance instead of being too heavy on the jasmine as some others seem to be. After it cooled a bit, I started getting that salty tingle but it was almost at the end of my cup so that didn’t make me too grumpy. All in all, a nice jasmine green but not one that I need to rush out and get.

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.

1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
