I’ve been looking for a perfect Jasmine for a long time and tried a lot of teas. Most of them left me disappointed, they were either too sweet or too heavy or too perfumy. This one is as close to perfection as it gets. I’ll refrain from giving it 100 for now because I might find a better tasting tea but I seriously doubt it.

This is how Jasmine should be done. It’s a bliss in a cup. It smells absolutely natural – fresh jasmine flowers that haven’t been picked yet and are blooming on a bush surrounded by lush green leaves. I definitely get some bitterness but it is light and blends well with the flowery aroma.

The brew is very refreshing, it feels thirst-quenching and at the same time leaves my mouth dry and I’m craving for more. The description is right to the point saying that the taste is crisp, it is very accurate. It’s green, crisp and fresh. I’m not getting much sweetness though, maybe just a tiny bit on the background which is a good thing for me because I didn’t find it to work well with jasmine flavor in other teas and discarded them for this same reason.

I agree. This is one of the better balanced teas, unlike the Jasmine Flower Tea, and lighter than the Jasmine Pearls that they have.

I can’t really compare this tea to other jasmine teas BP carries because it came as a part of a green tea sampler which contained only one more Jasmine tea (jasmine slim green tea) but I haven’t figured out the proper way to brew it yet. If you know, please share…

Dru Bramlett

The jasmine slim is a Kudin tea, which has a very bitter taste by nature. One stick per cup, and I usually brew for < 2 minutes.

Oolonga

What temperature do you use to brew it? Thanks a lot for the info, by the way.

I purchased this from Wing Hop Fung, the parent company of Bird Pick. I’m pretty sure from reading the SKU numbers on both sites & their descriptions that this is the same tea.

This is a lovely Jasmine, and as the previous reviewer stated quite a few years back, neither "…too sweet or too heavy or too perfumy.” So there’s something to be said for their consistency! It’s a lovely balance and just what I look for in a Jasmine.
