jasmine tea has been my favorite since i was a little kid. not just any jasmine tea will do, jasmine pearl tea is the best. loose. i’ve been without loose jasmine tea since i moved to new york seven months ago. yesterday, walking around chinatown i found these:
a little over the top for an every day tea, but it was delightful to have a couple of cups of it this morning for the first time in 7 months. watching it expand and bubble as it steeps is part of what makes it so delightful.
hopefully i’ll find the jasmine i’ve been searching for in one of those little shops soon. it’s not as fun to order it online.
