I’m a huge fan of jasmine teas – but I understand that floral teas aren’t for everybody! (Just like red rooibos isn’t for me.) I love the deep floral taste of this tea: jasmine with a touch of honeysuckle. Actually, you know the honeysuckle nectar that’s so much fun to pluck off? That’s the hint of flavor that is in this tea.

This is an essential for me, although if I drank it all the time I would get sick of it. I have to keep the variety going! With the exception of the phoenix pearls, this tea is the best jasmine I’ve tasted. Also, since it’s newer, it tastes fresher.

I just love the hint of honeysuckle nectar in the aftertaste. Reminds me of summer!

That sounds amazing! I’m also a huge fan of Jasmine tea, and I looove the smell/taste of honeysuckle. Definitely going on my list!

I only bought a sample so I don’t have enough to send you. But if you like jasmine & honeysuckle, this will be dreamy. :)

I have to be in the mood for it, but when I am, I really like jasmine teas. This is a good basic one. May have oversteeped, though.

I find Jasmine to be the most energizing green tea. I’m not sure why but I always tend to understimate it. I’ll have a cup and toss and turn for hours lol

I got a shard of glass in my thumb today at work… It hurt. All day I have been fretting and worrying that a tiny piece of glass may still be stuck in my thumb. Also, I still can’t figure out why there were shards of glass on my desk… I work a desk job, how does glass break on your desk over the weekend and surprise you on Monday as you reach for your mouse!?!? Anyway, this ordeal made me get home in less than a great mood. To cheer up I decided to make some tea and eat some butter cookies!

Jasmine and butter cookies turned out to be a better combination than I ever could have imagined! So good I even forgot about my sore thumb for a bit!

The dry tea leaves smelled of fresh jasmine and hints of honeysuckle (I read KeenTeaThyme’s note and smiled to find someone else found honeysuckle as well! I’m not crazy yet!). I love honeysuckle! It was a happy smell to be greeted with as I opened my tin. I used 2 teaspoons for 12oz of water (wanted it strong).

The resulting liquor was a light yellow color which made me think of yellow roses. An appropriate association considering how floral this tea is! The smell was amazing. I felt that it became much more delicate once brewed (2’00"). The jasmine came upfront and left a lingering sweetness behind.

The first sip was a little more bitter than I expected, but with each sip the bitterness was slowly overcome with the sweet jasmine finally to be followed by a sweet honeysuckle after taste. The tea leaves own flavor was in background adding to the ecperience. Each sip was a journey through each of these flavors. I was sad when it was gone… Thankfully I have a tin full of this tea, so another fresh cup followed the first! This time I brewed for only 1’30", resulting in much less bitter and a lot more sweet. Which to me was a good thing, a very very good thing.

I am very happy with this tea. I generally enjoy jasmine and floral teas, and this one is a lot better than most. The flavor is stronger and sweeter than in most jasmines, so if you aren’t expecting the full blown jasmine aroma it may take you by surprise. I can only say that the extra sweet jasmine kick made me like this tea even more. It will be reordered the next opportunity I have to order from Adagio for sure!

I think I had this tea tonight. We went to a friend’s place, and I thought they had a jasmine green tea from Adagio. I’m pretty certain they got it from a grocery store, too. However, when looking at the Adagio site, I can’t find green jasmine. Looking at the pictures here, this is the most likely candidate. Though, I could have sworn it had a green flavor rather than an oolong one.

Anyway, it was a lovely cuppa. And it made me look forward to the jasmine pearls waiting for me back at the office.

I didn’t use anything in this tea.
If you drink your tea without letting it cool off I would highly recommend this tea. It has a nice flavor when served freshly and the scent is nice and strong. As it cools though it seems like the flavor becomes more and more over whelming.
I like it hot.
Cold, it is a little much.
I tried adding less tea for steeping which has made it better but it still hits a point in the cooling process where I consider the tea un-drinkable. It always starts off so nice…

I’ve never had a jasmine tea before, but upon first sip my senses were flooded with the scent of jasmine and the subtle sweet taste. While I’ve only managed a few sips, this is one I will definitely be ordering more of.

Jasmine overpowers the oolong a bit, but the floral flavor is very nice…

Awesome staple at a really reasonable price. The jasmine completely overwhelms the oolong, but it’s delicious and smells great, so whatever. Way cheaper than Adagio’s more balanced and delicate jasmine#12. Multiple infusions are not bad.

Tastes best after cooling down a bit. It also makes a great iced tea. Be careful not to overbrew — I’ve let it go over by a couple minutes before and it acquired this weird, bitter, rubbery taste.

This one is for jasmine lovers. I am a big fan of many floral teas, especially jasmine pearls, but I found this one a bit overwhelming. I imagine that for many that would be considered a positive trait, but found this tea was really only drinkable when blended with something else to balance out the flavor and aroma a little bit. No complaints about the quality of the tea itself though, so I would still recommend giving a shot if that is your style.
