I’ve been trying to find a decent bagged jasmine tea, to drink at work, where loose leaf teas are not practical.

This is not it.

I agree with others here who said the scent is very artificial. I’m not really sure how to describe the flavor; I had the first cup as is, and it sort of tasted vaguely like alfalfa, but not in a good way, with an unpleasant aftertaste I can’t quite place. I tried a second cup sweetened, making sure I followed the instructions correctly, and it didn’t taste much better. In fact, I think the aftertaste was worse.

I was dreading finishing the cup, but I managed, so I guess this isn’t the worst tea I’ve had. I don’t think I can bring myself to use the rest, though.

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 45 sec

Harney & Sons has a decent jasmine, as does Mighty Teas. Both are bagged. I’d recommend either for ease of office steeping.

I love tea! I still don’t know very much about it, though; I know what I like and what I don’t, and that’s about it.

Aside from tea (and food), I enjoy crafty stuff, writing, reading and playing with my cats.

About my ratings: I need to go through and redo them, because really I just sort of use that slider as a ranking system and the numbers for a lot of the teas I’ve done notes for don’t accurately reflect how I actually feel about them. :/
