I’m not a big Jasmine fan. Normally. This is the BEST Jasmine ANYTHING I have EVER had yet. It makes me ENJOY Jasmine. I never thought I would say that but it’s true. Not that I will suddenly turn all Jasmine on your arses but this is good stuff right here. As soon as I opened the tin it was like I was in the center of Jasmineville. And instead of the Jasmine smelling of old lady perfume it was more of a natural Jasmine scent…truly unexpected. As I steeped the leaves/needles the scent lingered but was still true. After the steep it started to even out but was still quite strong. At this point I was a little worried that the Jasmine taste was going to be too over the top based on the aroma but it was just right. That taste was paired with a nice, soft sweetness which led me to a smirk or smile…this tea has proved me wrong and I don’t mind! The BEST 2 parts was that it WASN’T bitter and that there wasn’t a funky aftertaste. The only thing I disagree with is that the descriptions says a ‘whisper of jasmine’…for me, it was more a SHOUT, but, it all worked out…to be a wonderful tea experience.
