Bok, That can is Boston's "re-gifting" tea. When someone hears of a person liking tea, he gives a can of that tea to the "tea-drinker" when an occasion for a gift arises. Almost all of the time, the can was not bought for that occasion; rather, it was in the cupboard as an unliked gift. I confess that in my life I have bought a can or two and re-gifted several.

"Jasmine" is an appealing word and scent. Jasmine tea makes the rounds like a pleasant, attractive person who remains unmarried despite being popular and having had lots of relationships because true excitement and quality characteristics prove to be lacking in the long run. For those currently "dating" Jasmine; have fun while it lasts.

Haha, that is an excellent metaphor!

Sometimes I find no words for the characteristics, flavors, slightly different mouthfeel, etc.; nonetheless, I want that tea's uniqueness straight. I purchased 3 black teas today that have similarities; yet, each stands out enough to want all 3.

Some people may be comfortable reaching for a tea flavored by a particular flower or spice for which they have a name. They feel they know what is going into their cups. My younger sister has dozens of teas (mostly herbal). When she reaches for a specific one, she seems, sure rosehips or whatever will please her. (It won't; she invariably adds a huge amount of honey making all of her teas taste the same.)

Whatever makes one happy.

I usually drink teas without any additive flavours. But Jasmine tea is another thing. I really love it. A high quality jasmine tea is scented during a labor- and time-intensive process. It is perfectly balanced between the sweetness of the jasmine and the tea base.
Drinking Jasmine tea has a long tradition in Peking. You can find different kinds and grades of jasmine teas in the tea shops there.
My favorite jasmine tea is jasmine dragon pearl. I can make up to 5 brews with this tea.
