Jasmine tea has grown on me, but I’m still wary of trying new ones for fear of that strong perfumey taste. If I hadn’t got this one as a sample with my order, I probably would never have tried it.
But I’m so glad I did, because it is the most perfectly balanced jasmine tea I’ve ever had. The jasmine doesn’t overpower; it shares the spotlight so you can actually taste the silver needles, and the sip is so silky and ends with a bit of sweetness. There’s also a crisp, fresh linen quality to it, which makes me feel like I’ve been transported into a plush robe sitting atop a luxurious bed in a fancy hotel (and in that case, it’s well worth the price, right?) I’ll definitely order this one (and I’ll have to hoard the rest of this sample for special occasions until then!)
