drank Green Jasmine by Tea's Tea
122 tasting notes

Bought at a Japanese market. I’m always on a quest for a good bottled tea, and at $1.69 this is pricey, but not excessively so. I grabbed it out of the refrigerated section so it’s nice and cold.

Green Jasmine is very refreshing. It’s literally just jasmine tea – no extra sugar or honey or random “flavors” added – with the floral notes of jasmine dominating. It doesn’t have a strong aroma, but what you can smell is (of course!) flowery. The green tea provides a nice complement to the flowers, making a very balanced flavor, but they are so well blended that it’s difficult to distinguish flavor components.

The only other bottled jasmine tea I’ve had has been Adagio’s Jasmine Anteadote (which I’ve logged if you want to read about it) which had a much stronger floral flavor. Green Jasmine leaves a slightly bitter note in the aftertaste, but it’s very satisfying overall.

The super markets around me have these! So good, totally worth it. I think it was a bit cheaper when I bought it though.

The Japanese market is always totally overpriced. It’s in a wealthier neighborhood, and nostalgic immigrants are happy to pay the marked-up prices. But to get to a cheaper market, I have to drive all the way across town. It’s a tossup!
