Do you wanna build a SNOOOWMAAAAAN??

is ringing in my head

those of you that are parents

will understand my pliiiiiight

almost each and every day, I must endure this film

because my daughter loves it and likes to sing along

to all the soooooongs

Do you wanna build a SNOOOWMAAAAN?

no, but I’ll have a cup of tea

I’ll brew a nice hot pot of Jasmine Dragon Pearl

Green Tea

It’s dress-up day at my daughter’s school today, and I have spent hours finishing off her Rapunzel dress last night, adding extra ribbons and bows. Having inadequate rest, waking up to do you wanna build a SNOOWMAAAN? is not quite the satisfying, warm morning welcome I like to meet. However, a soothing teapot filled with Jasmine Dragon Pearl Green Tea, swirling deeply into my soul, swishing harmoniously throughout my mind, could bring any trying task to it’s knees, making bearable any situation, inducing a blissful state of relaxation and blithe.

Seemingly unbranded Jasmine Dragon Pearl Green Tea

This seemingly unbranded Jasmine Dragon Pearl Green Tea, which I found amongst my cluttered tea collection of riffraff, has a subtle, soft flavour. Gently massaging my taste buds, suddenly awakening them from a stale, dry, bed-throat slumber, a welcoming Jasmine aroma washes over my body and soul. The Green Tea flavour blends perfectly, fading in like a creeping spider; fading out as steadily and quietly as it slinked in, beckoning another sip of this tea.

Pleasant, peaceful, serene. Uplifting.

Any weariness remnant from lack of shut-eye is ushered away by the energizing effect of glorious green tea, holding me ready for the day ahead.

What a wonderful start to the day.

So, do you wanna build a snowmaaaan?

Or would you rather drink some tea



Tea Total Japanese Lime Green Tea

Today is a day of FLAVOUR. Wow. I’m sitting at a local Columbus cafe enjoying a pot of Tea Total Japanese Lime Green Tea, and I cannot implore you more: get down to Columbus, if you’re in NZ, and try this tea! It has to be the tastiest, most mouth-watering, god-damned green tea I have ever had the pleasure of guzzling down my gullet.

My eyes scanned down the laminate menu of a great variety of teas, and the word “lime” jumped off the page quicker than tea pours from a teapot. I love all things lime: lime milkshakes, lime icecream, lime jelly, lime on it’s own, a wedge of lime in my rum, lime on the frosted rim of a margarita, even the colour is brilliant! and I cannot believe I’ve been twenty-four years on this rock without tasting lime in a tea! the travesty. I quickly skimmed over the remaining menu, knowing full well I would be passing it all up. So I ordered the Japanese Lime Green Tea as I read the blurb

“Green sencha tea flavoured with lime, lemon & daisies, a mild but cleansing tea to be drunk without milk”

and if that don’t get your taste buds in a twist then you, sir (or madame), are reading the wrong blog. A strong lime flavour washes over your body like the waves washing up on the shore of Japan, with faint lemons squeezed delicately over your still, calm body, daises floating all around you, occasionally bopping into you, nudging your arm toward the teapot to pour an other cup of tea divinity. The green tea base can be tasted throughout, from start mixed in with the lime, to after-taste lingering with lemon and daisies.

Alas, my teapot drained, I am living in the past twenty minutes. Reliving every moment, every sip, every slurp. Wishing I had savoured it just ten minutes more. Wishing I hadn’t bought a banoffee cronut for $6.00, decimating any justification to purchase an other pot of tea. Wishing.

Japanese Lime Green Tea, try it. Try it at your next possible opportunity.

Any other lime infusions out there? please share them with me


Greenfield Jasmine Dream Green Tea

Within the blurb lies the description

“Light jasmine aroma accentuates clear and refreshing flavour of the noble green tea from Yunnan province.”

Now, it is rather difficult to go wrong with a simple green tea, or jasmine infused green tea. Greenfield and Yunnan province, unsurprisingly, certainly have not managed to blunder this one.

Jasmine Green Tea is a basic necessity for any tea-lover, and this Greenfield variety is a welcome version, indeed. I feel more relaxed with every sip. Soothing deeply, the flavours of jasmine and green Camellia caress my mind as my taste buds rejoice.

I would drink this tea shortly before meditation, or in the bath with many bubbles and scented candles, accompanied by a blunt. Such imagery of rested bliss floods my mind as I near the bottom of my cup.


Any jasmine-junkies out there?

Have you tried Greenfield? What’s your usual?

any and all opinions of Jasmine welcome.
