From DAVIDsTEA

A magical scent

Made from premium green tea, our Silk Dragon is a limited-edition treasure. To create it, night-blooming jasmine is gathered in the morning and kept cool all day. In the evening, when the flowers burst open and release their scent, they are placed with the tea until midnight. This is repeated with fresh flowers over the course of five nights, infusing the tea with a most magical flavour.

I received some of the Organic Silk Dragon Jasmine (in sachets) from DavidsTea a while back and am only getting around to trying it now. Wow, it tastes good! Definitely one of my favorites among the DavidsTea selections to date.

The liquor is golden veering green, and I infused the 3 gram sachet successively in two full Bodum glasses, both of which yielded excellent tea. I would definitely consider restocking this tea, and I love the story of how it comes to be scented! For five nights in a row high-quality organic green tea shares its bed with night-blooming jasmine. How romantic!


a third and fourth glass from this sachet were also still flavorful and redolent of jasmine—one of my favorite flowers in perfumery!

Enjoying this tea in my topsy turvy mug from Disney because I haven’t used this mug in so long!
Hmm a decent jasmine tea. For some reason it smelled like genmaicha when it finished steeping? But it tastes like jasmine and that’s what I’m here for :)
It tastes a bit like Beastly Beverages’ Angel of Decadence. Just a regular ol’ jasmine tea. I still really love DAVIDs Butterfly Jasmine. Much more smoother while this one tastes a bit more robust and slightly bitter in places. I may have used too hot water, but I’m sure this’ll resteep like a boss like all the other jasmines I’ve tried :)

Thank you Roswell Strange for sharing this with me. I think I am starting to accept some florals into my life and this is one I am actually happy to have tried. It has a sweetness to it while still remaining calming and fresh. It is very nice. Perhaps I will do a side-by-side taste test and compare it to Nina’s take on Jasmine and see how they measure up.

I have a newfound love for jasmine teas. This one from DAVIDsTEA particularly caught my attention because of their process, so I decided to order a 50g bag. I was taken back (and quite frankly a little nervous) to find that it smelled of the ocean upon opening. And not good ocean, but fishy ocean? Anyone else?

The first cup was good. I enjoyed it. Not as much as other jasmine teas. But I enjoyed it. Quite bitter at the end, I probably over-steeped. Green teas I find to be just as good the second steep, sometimes even better, but this one did nothing for me the second round. Very very bland.

Wouldn’t order this again. Too overpriced for what it is. I surprisingly liked Teavana’s Jasmine Oolong way better and I’m really not a fan of Teavana, so that says a lot. I guess I am just trying to live up to my first jasmine experience of Numi’s Green Jasmine sigh A tough one to live up to….good luck to the next brand.

I’m so sad right now.

The first time I drank this tea, I fell in love with it. This was my first experience in a long time with a jasmine tea (my first experiences go way back when I hadn’t been introduced to loose leaf tea yet so I had no idea what was going on lol) and I loved it. Some people have said it tastes like perfume, but to me it’s just perfect. I don’t feel the jasmine is overpowering, I think it’s just a nice touch.

So why am I so sad right now ? I only had 2 servings of this tea (I bought a 12 sachet box with 6 different teas in it) and this was my last one. I let it steep for only 3 minutes but the water I put in must have been too hot for a green tea (still not used to that… and my kettle is quite basic) and now it’s super bitter. I’m so sad. I can still taste the nice jasmine touch, but the aftertaste is horribly bitter. :( I’m still rating it high because I remember my first try… mmm… yummy…

I couldn’t let it go to waste though, so I finished it. And I’ll try a re-steep even though I’m pretty sure it’s all ruined. I can’t let it go.

Re-steep : oh ! not as good as it’s supposed to be, but way less bitter… I can enjoy the jasmine again, yay ! :)

Jasmine green tea is my utmost favourite tea, and it makes me very sad when I come across one that either doesn’t taste like jasmine, or simply doesn’t do it justice. (I’m one for floral, floral, floral — I can’t get enough of that delicate aroma and “clean” taste)

The taste of jasmine is in this one, but for some reason it is peculiarly bitter to the point that it skewers both the taste of the green and the jasmine taste. It’s just an astringent bitter flavour.

I agree with other people about drinking it cold. It is easier to recognise the flower taste then.

Backlog:

A really nicely scented jasmine tea. Sweet, soft jasmine … exotically floral but not overpowering … this is just a really pleasant jasmine. Nothing fancy … just a lovely jasmine tea.

not bad. nice jasmine. i let it steep too long, though, so not rating it yet.

I’m a huge fan of Chinese jasmine green teas and this one is so yummy. I didn’t find the jasmine to be overpowering. This is my favourite tea to have in the morning.
