I had this tea this morning!
So.
Backstory.

I had the wonderful opportunity to meet with the GM of a hotel since she’s alumni from my college, and the meeting was this morning. Last week when she spoke at the event, she mentioned she was a Tea Master and I was all a;lsdkjfhsdflkjadf OKAY.
So today, when we met up one-on-one, I saw her tea tray on the table across her desk. I mentioned to her that I loved how she had a tea tray in her office, and she gestured over to the table behind her desk where she had all her teas displayed! I was amazed. And she had all her mugs displayed underneath as well.
So we started our meeting, and then she paused and offered me tea, and I’m all oh gosh, yes please! And I mentioned to her earlier that I really enjoyed Jasmine green tea, and she pulled this tea out.
Turns out that she has a friend who is working on a project in Shanghai right now, and when her friend visited, she brought this tea over, and this was the tea that I enjoyed during our meeting this morning :)

NOW ONTO THE TEA.
It was really good! The water that I was given was luckily not too hot. This was one of the lighter jasmines that I’ve had. Very smooth, and not bitter at all! Light and floral, and just a wonderful delicate tasting tea :)

Definitely on my must purchase list next time I happen to stumble upon it here in the States!

Tea rating guide:
100-95: Best thing to ever touch my mouth and I want more. Restocking is a must
94-80: Love this tea. Restock if I can
79-70: Decent tea. Neither love nor hate.
69-60: I won’t be upset when it runs out. I’ll drink it but won’t restock.
59-30: I’ve done whatever I can to like this tea and I’ll finish the cup.
29-10: I’ve done whatever I can to like this tea. It may or may not have gone down the sink…
9-below: Let’s not even hide it. This definitely went down the drain.

I love tea.
I drink it.
I log it.
I have a good time.
Lather, rinse, repeat.

I first discovered my love for tea with jasmine teas because that’s all my mother would buy, so for the longest time, I thought that all teas were jasmine! And then in 4th grade, I watched the tea episode of Good Eats and that’s when the education started! I’d like to blame Alton Brown for starting this obsession because now I only like loose leaf tea.
It wasn’t until my second year of college that I actually expanded my tea taste buds. Special shout out to Cara McGee, Tea Queen for her Adagio Fandom blends. Because of Cara, I actually started drinking blacks, herbals and whites and pretty much everything else in between. I still have a special love for my jasmine though :)
I (try to) drink tea daily. Usually just straight up, no sugar or milk. This little obsession started young and just… kept going, I guess.

also I apologize in advance for lazy tasting notes and horrible grammar in everything I write. I was an avid fandom blogger on tumblr and tumblr talk can get in the way of everything kthxbai
