Right now I am drinking some teas just to get them off the shelf. And this one is getting old and definitely needs to go.

It isn’t bad – it is a pouchong rather than jasmine green. It was pretty good with food but not my favorite. As an economical jasmine with food, I would prefer Teavivre’s Silver Jasmine Green. By itself, I love their Jasmine Dragon Pearl. This tea is just okay.

The great thing was the food. On mrmopar’s recommendation, I bought some Ponzu with lime to try on Ramen noodles. I made a pack of ramen, throwing away the seasoning pouch that comes with it. Near the end of cooking, I threw in some frozen peas and sliced Baby Bella mushrooms. I strained the water off. I added some cornstarch to the Ponzu in a cup and whisked it together, then added a tiny amount of oil and poured it over the ramen noodles. Lunch was eaten on a quilt in the side garden with my dog, Sam. And I found out that I LOVE PONZU! I will be trying it on some more things. I put it on hubby’s crisp green beans tonight and he liked it, too!

Ponzu is good. Did you get the lemon or lime one? Told you that you would like it.

Whoops it was lime. Got ahead of myself.

Bio

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about twelve years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
