First jasmine tea (a lot of firsts in the past week), the aroma of this tea-at every stage-was strong and very familiar. As a resident of the south (U.S), I get this scent quite frequently, but until a few minutes ago I had no idea what the source was. The flavor of this tea (even before my default addition of 2 splenda packets) was sweet and almost overwhelmingly floral. This is one of the few teas I’ve had where the aroma of the dry leaves transfers directly to the actual flavor of the tea.
After trying this, I can tell that floral teas probably won’t be a staple in my cupboard, but I think “floral tea drinkers” will really like this one. So, the rating is more a reflection of the quality of the tea, not my personal taste.
