I’m relatively new to the higher end, full leaf and loose leaf teas and this was my first introduction to a Jasmine tea. I purchased it on a whim at my local Whole Foods while searching for a new green tea to try. Admittedly, the first time I made a cup I made a big mistake. I didn’t know that you want to steep green teas with water around 180F and NOT boiling water. This mistake must have been what turned me off to it at first. However once I learned that you steep with slightly cooler water as opposed to boiling I decided to give this Jasmine tea a second try. I’m certainly glad I did as I enjoyed it immensely and have now fallen in love with Jasmine tea in general! For me, this particular Jasmine tea is very balanced and I love the Jasmine aroma and flavor that accompanies the green tea. I might also add that cold brewing this tea overnight in the fridge makes for a very refreshing morning beverage.
