Looking for a GREAT Jasmine Black Tea

I’ve tried many jasmine blacks. My all time favorite is Thousand Mountain Jasmine from Teavana. It was discontinued a while back and I’m down to my last 7 grams of it. It’s basically a yunnan black/golden buds/dian hong tea scented with jasmine. I’ve yet to find a comparable replacement. Can you recommend one please? OR if you have any thousand mountain jasmine lets do a swap.

Not sure what the black base is (though not a Yunnan, I can say with certainty) and there is also green in it, but I really enjoyed the Black Jasmine Cream from New Mexico Tea Co.

I like Davids Tea’s organic black jasmine pearls but they are over-priced.

I actually ended up quite enjoying these. I can’t comment on the price as I didn’t pay attention to what it was, but you could probably do better. Have you checked to see if Teavivre has anything along these lines?

I love Teavivre’s Black Dragon Pearls but they don’t have any jasmine scented black teas that I have seen. Davids are $14/50 grams which is a bit much for me.

TeaVivre said

Yes, we do not have any jasmine scented black teas at the moment, but we have a Rose Dian Hong Black Tea, it is a combination of French rose and Chinese Dian Hong Black Tea.

No way, Teavivre has a rose black tea now?? I have hoped that you would introduce one of those! Awesome!

That sounds lovely!
I’ll definitely try some of that on my next TeaVivre order!

The Jasmine Golden Yunnan at thepuriTea is my favorite right now! Really well-balanced, really good!

I’ve actually had this one. It’s pretty good.

Me too!! I was thinking to post the same thing this week. I still have a couple oz left of my Thousand but will need a replacement. I’d rather have a non pearl tea.

Silk Road has a new tea they call Jasmine Jewel. It’s a really nice black tea, scented with jasmine. I really enjoyed the sample they sent me, and I don’t really love all jasmine teas.

So, unfortunately, thePuriTea went out of business and I can no longer find a jasmine dian hong. Anybody have any leads on another supplier of Jasmine Golden Yunnan?

I completely understand, that is my favorite tea as well :( Luckily I was able to snag a full pound the second week of December before they closed up shop so I’m in no danger of running out anytime soon. But I have been scouting out potential replacements since I’ll need it eventually.

Have you tried ebay? Dragon Tea House has a jasmine black http://www.ebay.com/itm/230592088717?ssPageName=STRK:MESINDXX:IT&trksid=p3984.m1436.l2649 and Graceland Teas has a ceylon black jasmine http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ceylon-Black-Tea-Jasmine-100g-/281203152386?pt=AUFood&hash=item4179039602
