drank Jasmine Blueberry by Art of Tea
558 tasting notes

Art of Tea sample 11/24

I could sit here and sniff this tea all day, but that wouldn’t be a very good review. The blueberry pieces are huge in this blend, understanding why it smells so deliciously berry and jasmine. The taste is of sweet blueberry and jasmine, a very very strong jasmine. It leaves a taste on my mouth similar to getting sprayed in the face with perfume/hairspray/air freshner that just is not pleasant. I love the initial taste of the blueberries, but the jasmine really throws one for a loop.

I wonder if this could be tamed by blending with another tea? Or an herbal berry blend? I really really wanted to love this one!

It got a little better when it cooled off, the jasmine wasn’t so much a perfume…or maybe my mouth built up a tolerance to it?

I agree, this blend is super-strong jasmine.

I’ve been known to use some of those uber-strong teas in a simmer pot as potpourri instead of tea … sounds like this might qualify.

Live in the cornfields of IL, but not too far from the city. Expecting a baby any day now (due Oct 24 2011). Sticking to mainly herbal and low caffeine teas for now. Trying to encourage my husbands tea drinking, but he adds so much sweetner he may as well just drink diet pop. I love trying new teas, and will try any tea once.
