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.
