This is a very very light and fragrant tea. A pale yellow liquor smells mostly of jasmine, while the flavor is balanced quite well. Both the quality of the green tea and the light addition of jasmine makes this a great cup. A slight vegetal hint broadens the floral nature of this tea. Disregard the brew time below, I just left the leaves in the cup.

In many jasmine tea’s I’ve tried, I’ve tasted something that I can only describe as chalkiness. An astringency that isn’t bitter per se, but none-the-less not too pleasant to my palate. This tea has none of that quality, only a bright green tea accompanied with a touch of jasmine florality. Hina’s Tea shop is luckily close to me, but also has an online store. I highly recommend this to you if you’re looking for a light jasmine tea.

Yes, i’m glad I found your notes. . .we were just discussing this yesterday on the dashboard. . Jasmine tends to scare people off when its too floral, it goes against the senses because it smells so floral (like perfume) and the brain tells you NO, don’t drink! haha.But a green with a hint of jasmine someone is more willing to try. . . thank you! I will def. give Hina’s selection a look and hopefully a taste :)
