Is it strange that I feel pretty drinking this tea?

I have never had any luck with Jasmine tea until this point. Bagged teas had an unfavorable bitterness at the end, so I took a chance and sprung for some real whole leaf tea.

The aroma of the tea makes me feel as though I am smelling the flower itself (which is particularly pleasing in the winter time)! The leaves are lovingly rolled into cute butterfly shapes that fold out while steeping, creating a wonderful show while you wait 3-4 minutes for your tea to be ready.

The actual flavor of the tea tastes like I imagined a good cup of Jasmine would be. Its floral simplicity is sweet, yet not heavy on the tongue. The green tea base complements the flowery fragrance to allow the Jasmine to really be the humble star of the show.

Like Beckara’s review, I agree this tea tastes like a lot of love and care went into it. Whenever anyone asks me what I am drinking, I simply say, “love”. :)

That’s definitely one of the tea I will bought for my next order! But, I wonder… Do you have enough tea for the price?

Because there’s the Dragon Jasmine which I will bought if that’s not worth the price!

I think if you’re a real Jasmine tea lover, this might be worth investing in for a treat :) I used about 4-5 butterflies per cup (which doesn’t even weigh 1g according to my scale, so a 25g bag will make quite a few cups!)
While I’m not a Jasmine tea pro, I did enjoy the simplicity of this tea! If Jasmine was one of my favorite teas, I would consider re-ordering this :)!
If nothing else, David’s does provide a sample of the tea in their green sample box titled “The World Tour” _

A fellow tea-drinker with an insatiable curiosity, I’m bound to try almost anything once! Embarking on this leafy journey, experiences are logged here :) While I mostly find my loyalties lie with black tea, every tea has its own health benefits and flavors that’s worth giving some attention to.

Rating note: There isn’t really a method to my madness — er.. how I rate teas. I just go with my gut instinct. It’s the right thing to do.
