Water: 160 degree hot spigot, 1 mug full
Steep Time: a little over 6 minutes

Tasting Notes:
Leaf Smell: Strong Jasmine and honeysuckle
Smell: Jasmine, honeysuckle, lovely floral sweetness
Flavor: slightly vegetal, floral, i really had to feel for the flavor as it was watery light
Body: Light
Aftertaste: floral, sweet
Liquor: light clear green-brown

smells delicious but was a weak flavor, though a strong after taste. Perhaps it needed to brew longer? I think adding sweetener or creme would kill the flavor. It was a nice tea, and a gift from JaneFan

I have a bag or two around here still – not sure I ever actually tried it! I’ll have to keep your notes in mind when I do. It was part of a variety pack from Te teas. I have a tin of Harney’s Dragon Pearl Jasmine which is what I drink when I want Jasmine green.

I didn’t see any other reviews so if you tried it you didn’t log it :) I do love variety packs from companies it gives you a chance to evaluate their teas overall, instead of having one tea flavor your opinion of them (if it’s your first purchase).

I am much more a black than green girl, but for my jasmine I tend to go for Teavana Jasmine Dragon Phoenix Pearls Green Tea – I’ll have to get my hands on a Harney’s Dragon Pearl sample at some point and compare.

Steep2: a bit more bitter and less aromatic, but still good

Steep3: a bit more bitter and less aromatic, also less after taste, but still good

I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).
