This is my all-time favorite green tea. I would gladly drink this daily and find myself craving it randomly during the day.

This was the first, true jasmine tea I’ve ever had and I was very impressed. Every jasmine tea I’ve had after it has either been too floral or too astringent for me. In other words, all others pale in comparison. Adagio seemed to have been out of stock for a while, but it’s back now and I’m so, so, so very happy it is! Sometimes you just hafta have some jasmine tea, yanno? Although jasmine tea isn’t my favorite, it’s good for what it is! A must-try for jasmine tea lovers!
I guess I’m just not a fan of jasmine. I found this to be nearly undrinkable and the smell started to give me a headache. I threw out the last 1/4 of the cup. Someone else said the jasmine got more subtle on resteeps, so maybe I’ll throw out the first steep next time I try it. I’m glad I only got the sample!
I read some of the other reviews of this tea and I think maybe I prepared it wrong. For the first couple of sips it was really bitter but then it mellowed out and the Jasmine was really prominent and both the scent and the taste was delightful. It was a very smooth clean taste to me unlike the earthiness of some of the blacks and oolongs I’ve tried. The pack said 3-5 minutes at 195, I had to estimate the temp by bringing it to boiling and waiting a minute and steeped for 4 mins. I’ll try resteeping (since someone said it resteeps really well) and for less time, see if that takes out the early bitterness.
The dry tea leaves smell sublime, the steeping tea smells amazing, and a deceptively clear beverage (at Adagio’s recommended steeping time) yields a clear, smooth jasmine flavor. Additional infusions progressively tone the jasmine down and let the green shine through.
This is definitely one you want to filter. Leaves left in the cup, it becomes unbearably floral and approaching soapy near the leaves.
