obsessed with Jasmine Teas. the jasmine fragrance is very light but is still satisfying with the green tea taste.
I really like this. The jasmine isn’t too strong, but the scent really lingers faintly, like fine perfume. It brews up to a light-medium gold and also smells faintly sweet. Sipping it, the flavor takes a moment to really come into being on your tongue. Then it’s bright and warm, with the faint jasmine as a sweet aftertaste and smell. It keeps drawing me back, and is a bagged tea I can actually say I like. Bigelow is a rather decently predictable brand, in my opinion.
The good: It’s sold everywhere in a convenient bag format. It’s cheap.
The bad: The jasmine taste could be a little more prominent.
The verdict: Not a terrible tea if you want something on the go, but there’s definite room for improvement. I was generous because I adore jasmine tea, but the blend seems a little weak.
This is probably one of my favorite teas. I love the dry-leaf smell, which is really smooth and fragrant and flowery. Steeped, it smells just as delightful, and tastes as good as it smells. I leave all of my teabags in my tea while I drink them (gasp, I know :P) and this tea has never tasted bitter no matter how long it has been kept in my mug. It’s a definite favorite and a really great tea to use if I need to relax or want something nice and soothing.
