Backlogging this from this morning. WOW! a thousand mountains of Jasmine in this tea. The Jasmine was extremely strong, without the cloying sweetness that you get from the fresh flowers. The tea underneath was a good quality, but I think it’s flavor was largely drowned by the Jasmine. Still, good enough that the tea was excellent even after it had cooled to room temp. I think this would make a nice, light ice tea. Others have said sugar would help the Jasmine…I drank it without and didn’t think the Jasmine needed any help. In fact, the tea is kind of sweet on its own…probably the real Jasmine flowers they use to flavor it. I did use a bit more tea than the 1tsp recommended..about 1 1/2.

I remember when I discovered that there was more to tea than hot or iced. I was given a loose tea sampler (M.T.W.) and a stainless steel tea ball as a Christmas gift many years ago, by whom I cannot remember. That was the start of what will be a life-long love of fine tea. I discovered Steepster from a blog entry on the Mark. T. Wendell website…and have, from Steepster, discovered even more fine teas and vendors. Bravo!
