Upon opening the tin, the unmistakeable scent of jasmine wafted through the air. This worried me at first, because I generally associate strong scents to artificial flavor, and artificial jasmine flavors come off as chemical-like to me. I was pleasantly surprised, however. The jasmine taste is very smooth and pleasant without covering up the oolong. This tea is very relaxing to me, and has proved to be one of the only jasmine teas I have actually liked. I have to thank adagio on this one for the new maestro collection. It’s an exciting experience to try higher quality teas at affordable prices.
