jasmine green tea

i can’t seem to find it anywhere any more. while i was at my previous job i was constantly rotating between honey lemon ginseng and jasmine green tea, both tetley products. that started once i got back from india. in the india office it was either your normal chai or 7up, and i switched between the two. but once i got back, i actively decided to let go of cold drinks and go with just green tea. this was made highly convenient because the coffee machine had a hot water tap.

but where i work now, it’s not so easy. there is no instant boiling water tap. so i need to wait for the water to boil in one of them water boiling devices. it took me a while to bring my mugs to work. i guess that was part of the moving over phase, it took me a long while to bring anything that was really mine to work. the mugs, books, hats etc. i haven’t gone so far as to take the hats and walking stick to work. i’m not that comfortable there.

to top things off, it seems that tetley has decided to stop selling the jasmine green tea. this complicates matters, as much as i like honey lemon ginseng, the smell is not quite jasmine, nor is the taste. i’ve checked multiple stores, with no luck.

the cafeteria three floors up has lipton (i think, not sure) tea. and it’s… awful. i’ve tried the plain green tea and the jasmine green tea… and it’s no good.

i need to find an alternative. a good alternative.

i tried yaser’s recommendation. it’s not bad, but it’s not green tea. i had lipton’s earl grey from the caf this morning. no milk or sugar, of course. again, not bad, but not quite happening.

i’ll try and hit up numi’s green teas on the way back home today.

  1. you deserve a better cup of tea.


    a friend bought me twinings darjeeling tea, which is good. but now that i’m lookin at their lineup, i want to try their indian spiced tea to see if its really any good. as you now have heard i’m not a big fan of jasmine tea – it tastes like, well, jasmine flowers. and i am not down with that.

  2. i am going to cover my eyes and return to this website only when my eyes don’t see JASMIN and TEA repeated over and over for several paragraphs.

    that’s a double blow, yaara, and yer killing me.

    PS: forget all this disgusting tea business. what i really want to hear about is the hats and walking sticks. WALKING STICKS?! do tell!

  3. numi’s green teas, including jasmine: fair trade, halal, kosher (tea?!), organic, and delicious. get it @ noah’s organic food store @ spadina + bloor.

  4. @yaser – “earl grey” sounds so english and proper. i’m reluctant to try it just on that account. but since you’ve said it, i will try it.

    @anjum – thanks miss, though i don’t know if i want to be ordering tea online. i will look for it in the stores though.

    @yasmine – hah, yes the walking stick and the hats. the hats because i had really really long hair, so someday i’d hat it. the walking stick/cane, i bought that so i could dress up Dr. House for a halloween costume party at work. there was a contest for best costume. i came second. the winner was dressed up as me (wearing a hat, my hat, and carrying around a desk of cards, my card, and carrying around a magic wand, my magic wand).

    one of the hats got me comparisons to michael jackson. when i wore that hat with the walking stick, i was called a pimp (by my own team members, and at that time they reported to me!).

    @zb – that might just be the ticket, thanks. =) i will try it out and let you know.
