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”. :)
