Jasmine Tea (Day In Supermarket, Birmingham) [By @SpectreUK]

This Jasmine Tea is from the Sea Dyke Brand, and is blended by the Xiamen Tea Import and Export Company Limited. Xiamen is a major city on the southeast coast of China, and has a population of around 3.5 million people. I found this tea in the Day in Supermarket, situated in the Birmingham Arcadian. I generally buy a few boxes when I visit the supermarket, as there are 20 teabags in a box for 85 pence. I have two tins for teabags in my draw at work; one is earmarked for milk teas, such as English Breakfast or Assam, and the other tin for green tea. I like to have a cup of green tea after lunch every day at work, as it helps me to digest my lunch and settle my stomach to be ready for a busy afternoon. These jasmine teabags are stringed and come in little individual paper packets. I prefer to leave the teabag brewing in my mug for a good long soak as I like my tea to taste as strong as possible. There is a lucid inviting jasmine smell that massages the senses, calming me outside as well as inside as I drink it. There is no unpleasant bite at the of each mouthful like some green teas. This jasmine tea is a smooth, floral, and most satisfying brew, leaving a powerful yet pleasing jasmine aftertaste. There is also a Green Tea available from the Sea Dyke Brand, of which I have enjoyed in the past and am sure will come across again in the future.
