Pioneer Coffeehouse, Jasmine Baihao Tea, Dalton Ohio





I had the day off so I decided to take my Christmas gift card and coupon and go have some tea. I was looking forward to having tea at Pioneer Coffeehouse.  I wanted to try their Hugo tea.


I went in thinking I would get the oolong tea, but then the gal working the counter told me there was a new tea- Jasmine.  I love Jasmine, so I went for that one.

These are beautiful rolled leaves.  I love that they unfurl when they steep.

This is the first place that I have ever been to that gave me a timer with my tea- I LOVE IT!!


I was given my tea and a timer- that way I could get my tea perfect.  How great is that???!  More tea places need to do this.  If you have the correct temperature and the correct steep time, you will get a wonderful cup of tea.


They even give you your own pitcher.  Once I finished this cup, I went back for more hot water.


This was a really nice Jasmine tea.  The Jasmine /floral notes were super strong, I have to say I liked the second cup better than the first, it was not as intense as the first cup.


I hung out for almost two hours- drinking tea and blogging.   They have free wi-fi and several comfy places to chill in the coffeehouse.  I like their style and the vibe in there.





The only thing missing as I looked out the window was snow!!  I love watching it snow...
