smells a bit more earthy than most jasmine green teas I’ve tried. the jasmine flavor is very, Very slight – more of an aftertaste than anything. good for someone who loves a very gentle and delicate green tea.
Flavors: Earth, Jasmine
I love TJ’s dearly, but their teas are mostly a let down. I should have known better and resisted, but the lure of a spicy tea was too much for me to pass up. I cold steeped this overnight in the fridge and woke up to a tea who’s first taste is of alkaline, which I always equate to dirt. Dirt tea, mmmmmmm! After the alkaline washes away, I am greeted by some heat and the flavor of fruit. Over all, it was a let down. I might try adding some creamer to see if that helps with the dirt, but I’m worried that it will tame down the chili which was the selling factor for me. :/
An excellent, soothing winter time tea. It really does taste like a candy cane in tea format – very little green tea taste present, which is fine with me in this case.
I always stock up on this when the winter season rolls around at Trader Joe’s, since it’s not sold during the rest of the year. Great tea for a calm December evening or a rainy day!
