Thursday Tea Time - Tea for Two

This week - Trader Joe's Jasmine Green Tea (revisit)

Cost: $1.99 at Trader Joe's
Size:  20 tea bags, individually wrapped
Caffeine:   Yes
Type of tea:   Green
Steeping time:  7 minutes.  Whoops!  It is supposed to be 1-2 minutes.  But it didn't become bitter.
Mix ins:   A little bit of Pure Beeing honey
Fragrance:  Jasmine
Ingredients:  Green tea, jasmine blossoms (?)
Opinion:   Not as good as my standard bearer for jasmine tea - World Market's jasmine tea with the  jasmine "pearls" - but more like broken up bits and pieces.  However,  it gets points for convenience and price when you can't find or stop by a World Market and I was in the mood for jasmine tea.   Trader Joe's version is more like a floral tea with a green tea finish, and a nice light tea for a little pick-me-up in the afternoon and evening.  Oddly it tastes better warm than iced.  I reviewed this almost two years ago, and I think they did improve it.
Rating: 2.5
