Reading some of the other tasting notes for this tea, it’s funny to see how often this was one of the first loose leaf teas people tried….it was one of mine too ;) I got this from our international grocery store back when I didn’t know anything at all about loose tea. By now my stash of this tea is a couple years old (I know…I should have drank this a long time ago), but the taste has held up pretty well. I decided to make a tasting note now after all this time after “rediscovering” this in my stash…apparently I used waaaaay too much leaf and water that was too hot the first time around. It’s like a different tea – and a lesson to pay closer attention to steeping conditions :P
The jasmine flavor/aroma is really strong and tasty without being too “flowery,” and it has enough body that I like it as an after-lunch tea. I should try this iced.
