Good Bye, Old Friend
I have reviewed this tea before, but it is a new year's batch, so... It is Pearl Jasmine from the puriTea - yes, that is the way they spell it. Two minutes at 180, or 3 1/2 if you mess up, like I did. It didn't matter, which is amazing, since Oolongs and greens can be picky. This is the same wonderful stuff that smells absolutely like jasmine flowers and tastes like them, too. It is a green tea that doesn't get bitter if you over do it or if your cup is very large. It is one of my 2 favorites. I must warn you, this is comparatively strong, but I don't find it overwhelming and it isn't sickly sweet or like perfume. it is simply, wonderful.
