I usually really enjoy Good Earth tea, but can hardly stand this stuff. Whether or not it’s “natural,” the aroma of jasmine is horribly artificial, and overpowering to boot, like a bad perfume. The smell is almost powdery- sort of hard to describe, but imagine powdery sugar candy like fun-dip (remember fun-dip?!) or something to that effect. I was so surprised by my adverse reaction to this tea (I enjoy jasmine green teas) that I almost want to buy another box as a control, in case this one is… old? I don’t know, but as of now I definitely can’t recommend this tea. It’s drinkable, but not enjoyable.
