drank Jasmine Tea by Dammann Freres
2469 tasting notes

I never thought I was a fan of jasmine tea, but having been gifted samples of the really good stuff from friends, it’s beginning to grow on me. Damman Freres does a fine job with the proportions here, lightly scented instead of obnoxiously perfumed, and I’m getting a hint of fruit (plummy? grapey?) at the back end of each sip. Very pleasant to relax with after a long day.

I have recently discovered that a good jasmine tea, either green or black, is magic.

I’m in the “lightly scented” camp myself. After getting migraines from jasmine teas having a strong wafting “grandma perfume” aroma I am pretty trepidatious… I have had success with stronger black bases, and I also often taste a “grape” flavor from jasmine.
