I’ve never really liked jasmine because I always felt that the jasmine was too overpowering and completely ruined the gentle nature of the underlying teas that I was drinking.

Then I actually found some good jasmine tea that is scented properly and enhances rather than detracts from the overall taste and quality. This jasmine is created with silver needle tea buds and has a very consistent light flavor that reaches a peak by the 2nd-3rd steeping.

I highly recommend this tea!

Sounds interesting. I had a Jasmine Pearl tonight and it was tasty but seemed almost a tad strong. I didn’t mind it but couldn’t taste the tea as clearly. This one sounds worth trying. Also intrigued by the peak at steep 2-3. I wonder how that is achieved.

My humans totally agree about the overpowering quality of Jasmine and are the same about Earl Grey. Often, the oil of bergamot is too strong. Tea Forte seems to have it right. So does The English Tea Store on this free sample we tried: http://bit.ly/8dxjfY (they call it Buckingham Palace Garden Party Tea).

Not quite sure but I find the 2nd – 3rd steeping to have the most flavor and be the most soothing.

Bio

I began my tea adventure when a counselor at Spanish camp introduced me to yerba mate. From there I soon started to embrace all different kinds of tea.

Currently my favorite tea is dragonwell, with silver needles being a close second. I really enjoy trying new teas and experimenting with different steep times and temperatures,
