Tea Tuesday - Teavana Jasmine Oolong Tea Review

Hello!  Welcome to Tea Tuesday, a monthly segment where I review a tea the first Tuesday of each month.  I wanted to share my new go-to tea, Teavana's Jasmine Oolong (find it here).  If you're not familiar, Teavana is an amazing tea speciality store that sells one-of-a-kind looseleaf teas, mugs/cups, and other tea lover gifts.  This tea is priced at $12.98/ 2oz, but I got it on sale for 50% off... I KNOW! I seriously lucked out and ended up purchasing 4oz :)

Let's talk flavor which can be best described as a soothing, earthly blend.  In my opinion, Oolong tea is like green tea's and black tea's lovechild--the perfect combination that's not too sweet and never bitter or too strong.  In fact, I love this tea so much that I drink it as is.  In my book, you know you've found a great tea when you love it by itself!   Tea should never need sugar or honey to taste good, only to enhance the already good flavor.

OOhh, and I can't forget to mention the smell!  My gosh, if you enjoy the scent of jasmine, this is for you!  Every-time, I mean literally every-time I have to smell the fresh tea leaves when I open the tin...I can't explain to you the beautiful soft smell this tea has.  Another bonus, this tea has so much flavor that as long as you don't over-steep it, you can easily get 2-3 cups from a single go and I know us tea lovers can appreciate that!

Well that ties up Tea Tuesday and I hope you enjoyed it.  I highly recommend you try this tea--it has quickly become a new favorite.  Please share yours in the comment section below!  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE trying new teas!

QUICK SIDE NOTE: today I started my first 3-Day Juice Fast, so if you're interested in more details on that stay tuned for tomorrow's post where I'll give you the full scoop.  Anyways, thanks for reading in and have a great day :)  See you next Tea Tuesday in February!

Love ya lots,
