OMG! IT’S BACK, IT’S BACK, IT’S BACK!!! I just finished off my last bit from last summer that I had been hording. But now that it is back I can get more…….. when my budget is back.

The smell of the dry leaf is like smelling a bunch of hand picked sweet flowers and nectar; sweet and airy. The wet leaf becomes deeper with damp cedar notes backed with warm vanilla. The taste of the tea is’t self is simply divine. It is like drinking the nectar of sweet flowers drizzled with vanilla and a tinge of tingly spice left on the tongue When it is iced the vanilla becomes more of a creamy texture with the jasmine and Yabao more present making it tasted like flowers that have been plucked from a cedar forest that still have morning dew on them.

Overall this is a great crisp, light, and floral tea that is sweet enough on it’s own and in my opinion embodies spring time.

NOTE: While this tea has green jasmine tea it isn’t over the top or dominating in flavor. It is more of a sweet jasmine then a dry floral one. So jasmine wienies (like me) don’t need to worry.

Is good, but might not have a lot of complexity or wow factor. Is pretty average

It’s ok, but not great. Might need added ingredients or tweaking, and is below average.
