The Jasmine scent is really nice and adds to the drinking experience – reminded me what really good green tea is like! I think I used too much tea though for my cup. Brewed for 3 minutes but might also cut that back a bit next time as there is a very slight bitterness. Added a little honey and that balanced it out for me.

The last few times I’ve had plain green tea it was a Bigelow tea bag – not really much green tea taste at all. This also made me realize that the 5+ year old tin of jasmine tea is not worth drinking anymore! Time to do a cupboard clean out.

I started getting into tea this year because coffee was causing a lot of acid issues, but now I’m converted over to tea! I started with the basics, thinking I preferred my tea plain(mainly because blends I was offered all contained things I dislike or tasted too weak), but in May 2017 a friend brought me into a David’s Tea store and I was bowled over. I’ve been completely off caffeine for 3 months to heal an inflamed GI tract, but now I’m able to drink small amounts of caffiene. I just found Steepster while looking for ways to organize my stash. I can’t wait to rate more teas and read other users ratings!

Likes: STRONG tea, hibiscus, nutty
Dislikes: anything mint, eucalyptus

My loose rating chart:
100-90 – Why am I not drinking this tea right now?!? Definite favorite, buy in mass quantities
75-89 – Loving this tea but not likely to obsess over. It would be good to have this tea on hand and have a cup every once in a while.
60-74 – OK. Wouldn’t keep it in the cupboard, but I would drink it again.
45-59 – If a friend served this I would drink it to be polite, but it’s not really my thing.
Lower than 45 – Um just no. Would not drink it again.
