Tasty enough, I enjoyed the inclusion of (subtle) orange with the jasmine.

Sipdown!

This was one of my go-to teas to drink before leaving for work in the morning because it requires such a low brewing temperature. Cooler tea = I can drink faster = I can leave for work on time.

That said, while I appreciated how soft a flavour it is, I really wish that the orange peel was more prominent.

Nepali Tea Traders sent me some of the base green tea to try on its own, so maybe that will be my new morning go-to until I finish it off.

This was part of the Amoda Nepal tasting box. $5 of the price of the box went to benefit the victims of the earthquake this year, so it gave me a “good” excuse to buy more tea. I’m really liking this tea a lot. The flavorings are mild, and you can still appreciate the base tea, which is fresh and vegetal. I’m looking forward to tasting this tea again when I’m not painting my nails (the citrus from the nail polish remover I’m sure is overwhelming some of the aromas and flavors that are there.)

Unrelated: I’m newly obsessed with the Hae Min Lee case since discovering the Undisclosed podcast. I anxiously await the second season of Serial and the results of the testing on the forensic evidence (will it be made public regardless of the results?)

I was obsessed with that as well. And do we know yet when the next season will start?

Wait, you mean the serial podcast right?

I haven’t seen anything about when the next season is going to start (except for the vague “later in 2015”), but it’s been recently released that the subject of next season will be Bowe Bergdahl. I’m now trying to avoid learning anything new about that case, so I can really enjoy the second season.

It’s bitter as I expected it would be. I steeped this far too long so it’s completely my fault. I still like this one better than yesterday’s green. It seems sweeter and more fragrant.

Second Steep
8 ounces water + 160 degrees + 2 minutes

I steeped this cup correctly. Even with the long first steep, it has a deep color and a nice, light aroma. I actually taste green beans in this. That’s a first for me. I haven’t tasted the orange in either cup though.

Flavors: Green Beans, Sweet
