Lunch tea: 

jasmine downy pearls from Peet’s Coffee & Tea (100 Mt. Auburn Street, Cambridge)

Another day, another jasmine tea. I steeped the tea for the appropriate time, but I found the water quality to be questionable, or perhaps it was the tea. I don’t want to find fault with the tea, because how can jasmine tea go wrong. Don’t misunderstand me: it was not bad, just not as good as I hoped it would be. Upton Tea claims in a description of a jasmine green tea that you don’t want the jasmine flavor to be too overpowering: you want to actually taste the tea. I am only just learning the nuances of tea.
