Another herbacious gem from JacquelineM’s SweeTeas! I’ve been low on Jasmine for a while and none of it worth singing about, but this one! This is worth a whole comcept album!
The base is lightly sweet but nutty, not too grassy to cause disharmony. The jasmine is soft and real (Is there anything more repusive than brash or fake jasmine?) and I think I spent as much time sniffing it as drinking it. The smell, taste, and color are all plesant. A&D’s Jasmine is an instant hit in the top five jasmine teas for me.

Edit: And this is what makes it Damn Fine. Four steepings and it still tastes like jasmine! The jasmine fades slower than the tea base without starting harshly! And the fourth was over night! I almost want to dance.
Ah! Here we go! I’ve always thought Venus Hum looks and sounds like this tea. Tastes like it too!

To answer your question, no there is nothing worse than fake jasmine, other than maybe fake cherry flavor. I’m always on the hunt for new jasmine teas; I’ll have to give this one a try! :)

Fake lotus flavor is the only thing I can name. It is the only flavor that has ever made me vomit. Literally. Vomit. No allergies. {Shudder}

Those lotus seeds online freak me out. Have you ever google-imaged the lotus seed? I too shudder at the thought! I will avoid…
