Re: OT - looking for a relaxing drink, non-alcohol

I may be wrong, but I think Jasmine tea is green tea with dried petals of Jasminum sambac [common name is Arabian jasmine]. J. sambac is also used to flavor jasmine rice. You would need a greenhouse to grow your own.

It tastes like dirty water to me too. About the only tea I can stand to
drink...that is a TEA....is Jasmine tea. Now...somebody will probably
tell me it's not real tea. O.K., well...they serve it in my favorite
Japanese restaurant...so to me it's tea. It's smells good and tastes
good...but I don't make it very strong.

I've always hated tea - tasted like dirty water - except for the tea in
Asian restaurants. so I now will occasionally drink green tea at home -
not bad! And it is rumored to be good for you, antioxidants or something
like that. I don't know about its caffeine content though.


-------------- Original message --------------

Man...with the stress I've been under lately...my "one glass" of red
wine in the evening has turned into SEVERAL glasses of red wine. Gotta
stop and relax. I'm looking for a good tasting tea or beverage that
would be a good substitute. I don't drink regular tea...and don't like
most herbal teas. They taste like you mowed the grass and stuck it in
hot water....and you're supposed to like that? Ughhh. I don't want the
caffeine and I don't want alcohol....HELP????
