After trying the Jasmine Silver Needles from Adagio I had to explore Jasmine tea more thoroughly. Man, this one is great. Lupicia in San Francisco has a batch of these with an expiry date in a few months, so they said it will only stay fresh for about 6 months – I think I can finish this off in a few weeks :)
This tea is very nice – the strong Jasmine smell which some people don’t like I think is damn awesome, and I’m keen to grab another cup. This one seems to re-steep well, I’m actually just about to make a 2nd cup of it.
The flavour is very nice and smooth as the Lupicia teas tend to be. It blends well with Green Tea. I tried it boiling as well as at normal green tea temperatures (175F) and it seems to hold up pretty well at both.
