I must admit that when I first opened the tin of this tea, I was a little disappointed. I am extremely fond of jasmine, and I could barely detect the jasmine aroma of the dry leaf.
Upon brewing, that changed. The fragrance of the liquor is soft but beautiful!
The flavor is so pleasant. The jasmine is not overdone in this blend – it doesn’t hit me over the head to let me know it’s there. Instead, it just gently eases its way onto the palate. Lovely.
As I’ve said, I’m extremely fond of jasmine. Most of the jasmine teas I’ve tried up until now have been the type that are very strong and assertive – this one is gentle. You might wonder which I prefer – the answer is both! This one is good for the times when you want to relax and enjoy a softer, sweeter jasmine. The stronger jasmines are good for when you want some floral intensity.
