Yum yum yum! So warm and lovely and aesthetically pleasing – full of spice and heat. The only better Chai I have had is a house blend, freshly made to order, so this is brill!
4 Tasting Notes
I really feel like I am possibly the only person who is not completely enamoured with this tea? I found it quite bland compared to other green teas. :( :(
Turkish Apple is okay as a hot, sweet drink, but is so much better as an Iced Tea. Mix with peppermint and enjoy in summer!
This is my absolute favorite tea. I have the very last of it in my teapot right now! I have always loved green teas, they’re possibly my favorite variety, and China Jasmine is a beautiful blend. It still has the full flavor of more potent varieties (like gunpowder green, my old favorite!) but it’s less full on. The Jasmine compliments the flavor beautifully, and I find it to be a light, delicate version of green. Aesthetically, the leaves themselves are nicely twisted, and unfurl nicely in the pot. The aroma is pleasant, and reflects the delicate nature of the tea. I often drink several cups at a time of this, whereas I find some green teas get too bitter and strong to continue drinking if you don’t finish them quickly enough. China Jasmine is easy to brew, with boiling water not spoiling the flavor (although brewing it correctly is advised, of course.), and all around it is a difficult tea not to love!
