drank Green Tea Jasmine by Impra
2 tasting notes

I’ve had Jasmine teas in the past that were quite nice, even though Jasmine will never be a favorite of mine, which is odd as I Do enjoy Lotus teas, I think most Jasmine have an odd taste initially that mellows as I sip, so the third and fourth taste is not so bottled perfume like., This Impra Jasmine green though, I almost get a headache it tastes so intense. Hard to describe, but it to me it tastes like a bottle of cheap Jasmine perfume smells. Some Impra flavored teas I find very pleasant, not this one though. I will drink this only if there is not much else around.

I am still on my Cheapster Steepster kick trying to thin the herd a bit. This is my first experience with Impra and a black based jasmine.

Ok, so that you don’t have to look it up – this was Brett’s review: Strong flowery perfumy Jasmine flavor, but it overpowered the taste of the Ceylon Black. Not bad if you like Jasmine.

I echo the review except for the last line. Having come to love jasmine recently, I can tell you in no uncertain terms, you can do a lot better. I don’t know if the jasmine is off or if it just doesn’t go well with a Ceylon base. It is not gross like a lot of cheap bagged jasmines but it isn’t satisfying either. I’d much rather have a Diet Mtn Dew.

lol. Yeah, I’m weak. Also love Zero Big Red but I am not sure how regional that one is.

Lol, you know in the Ozarks everyone drinks mint dew, & they call it squirrel piss…
Just sayin’…

K S

I am not a mint fan but now I so want to find this. Wonder how my wife would respond is I wrote squirrel piss on the shopping list? ;)

Hey, now…I consider myself an honorary (expat) Ozarkian and I don’t touch that nasty stuff ;)

K S

I Googled mint dew and got nothing. What is this stuff? My wife’s family is from the Ozarks so might not even notice it on her list ;)

gmathis

Oops…did I goof? I thought you were still talking Mountain Dew, which I think tastes like antifreeze.

K S

Gmathis you are probably correct… and so terribly wrong at the same time :p

After yesterday’s Lipton, anything seems like heaven. The tea dust escapes the bag alot, it’s extremely bitter if brewed more than 2 minutes. Tastes okay though. A tolerable option if nothing better is available…

The jasmine scent is quite faint. There’s some unpleasant astringency in the tea, which might be also due to my brewing methods, not sure about that yet. The recommendation was to brew for 3-5 minutes, and I did only for 2 minutes. So maybe my water was too hot (I really need a thermometer of sorts!). Or maybe this just isn’t that good green tea.

I don’t fancy jasmine teas so much, but I gave the score to this one based on how it is as a green jasmine tea, and not if I like jasmine or not.
