I attempted to visit the ChineseTea-Shop online, but it appears their website is down… maybe maintenance? I hope so…

Anyway, this is a nice jasmine. It has a bitter tone to it that hits just before mid-sip. Not a bad bitterness, though. This is definitely a sharper jasmine than some I’ve tried. The tea base is a very light tasting tea. Overall, it’s pleasant enough.

I noticed that as it cools the flavor becomes smoother – less bitterness, and the floral notes have almost a sweet, creamy taste.

Kashyap

does it show visible jasmine flowers?

LiberTEAS

@Kashyap – no. It’s all ringlets.

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:
http://sororiteasisters.com

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

*

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
