Delicious. Exquisite. Delicate. Forceful. Calming. I can’t really find the right words to describe this one. I received this tea in a swap with KiTT. (Thank you!) I must admit, I’ve been wanting to try this for some time now. I’m so happy that I’ve finally had that chance.

The scent is that of a typical jasmine green. It’s delicate, yet mysterious. I love jasmine. They are some of the best teas I’ve ever had. 175/1.5 min. Now, I can also smell something like berries. Strawberries. The taste is phenomenal! There’s definitely jasmine, even though it’s not the primary tea in there. I’d venture to say it’s the green rooibos. (By the way, either use a strainer with REALLY small holes, or try a teabag. I’m still brushing it out of my strainer…) I’m really not familiar enough with green rooibos to discern its flavor in a mixture. The strawberry is delicate, yet just about at the same level of the jasmine green. It’s really well done, a perfect balance. Bravo! (Maybe that’s the word I was looking for…)

Thanks, KiTT!

It’s really, really good! I’m so glad I didn’t use it all at once. Now I have just enough left for another cup. :)
