I hate to keep going on about how much I love these Teavivre teas, but I can’t help it! Teavivre has completely eliminated my negative predispositions about flowery and white teas.

On the top of my most shunned list was Jasmine tea. When I tried some other (not to be named) brands, I felt like I was swilling cups of perfume. Not only is this Silver Jasmine Green tea a pleasant sipping blend, but it is also full-flavored and sweet.

The color is a semi-deep amber when steeped for two minutes at 195 degrees. I didn’t expect that hue from a green tea.

The manifestation of jasmine is strong in this tea, but when combined with the sweetness in the flavor and the subtle green tea taste, everything works together peacefully to produce a very palatable experience. Altogether, you are rewarded with a rich sweet jasmine tea without bitterness.

I only have one more Teavivre tea to sample. I am sad because I always look forward to the tasty surprises that these teas spring on me and I will miss them. But, the good news is, my shopping list is loaded and ready to order more of these great teas from China!

My next order from a tea company will be from Teavivre. I was not planning on ordering their Mo Li Yin Hao, because I usually order the Jasmine Pearls and the Yin Hao doesn’t resteep as well as the pearls-IMHO. I just might reconsider though, and I’m glad you enjoy it!

It seems that you can’t go wrong with any of the Teavivre teas, Scott! I hope you enjoy this one too!

My first jasmine tea w a jasmine black from Southern Season. It almost made me sick! Too much perfume! I am glad I tried some GOOD jasmine tea!

That was my gripe about jasmine teas. The ones that I had tried before made me feel like I was doing perfume shooters!

Bio

I ventured into the world of serious tea drinking in the Summer of 2011. I started out slowly and gently with bagged tea but climbed to the incredible flavorful heights of loose leaf teas in October of that year. Once you go leaf, you never go bag (except when you get free samples)!
