drank Jasmine Tea by Fujian Tea
1876 tasting notes

When I saw teawing’s review of this, I knew I had seen this tin before. We have a fairly large Asian market and I go there every now and then. Today I had a good excuse to go and there it was! This was only $2.39 for the small tin which is 120 grams.

Upon opening, there is a nice, strong jasmine aroma. It is strong, but it doesn’t accost you like the jasmine black I bought at A Southern Season.

I prepared it as I would any green, and not as the tin recommends.

Steeped, the aroma is really lovely. The tea is smooth with a little astringent edge, but quite good, and pretty unbelievable for the price. I could happily sip away on this regularly.

Thank you, teawing, for alerting us to this little treasure! There is another listing for it under Jasmine tea by Sunflower, and I think Fujian is just the distributor, but the tin is unmistakeable!

It was my pleasure, sometimes, good things don’t come with high prices!

I am a music teacher and homeschooling mom who started drinking loose leaf tea about five years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
