Either I am spoiled by Teavivre’s Jasmine Teas or this hasn’t aged well. I tried cold steeping it and there wasn’t much jasmine to it, and the green base was a bit astringent. Ah well, at least I hve some other jasmines to enjoy!

My second Gongfu of today. My previous experience with this tea was not a positive one (so much so that I did not review or rate). My first encounter was bitter and sharp (from what I remember) which I believe to be down to their default instructions. The packet says to use boiling water and keep covered for 5 minutes. It was yucky.

My Gongfu today is using a cooler water temperature and having my first pot steep for 1 minute. My own instructions :)

The leaves whilst raw are a dark brown colour with the occasional yellow flower bud or stem. It has a scent of musky jasmine.

What is produced is a lovely honey coloured tea with that beautiful sweet, floral jasmine scent (that us much expected). This is much tastier than before, it’s far more subtle with the sweet jasmine being fresh, light and at a perfect strength. The quality is not by any means the best but this was a cheap tea (roughly £3 for 227g/8 oz) so for that price it’s a nice every day jasmine tea.

Well first I thought I would have to throw this tea away but my second try with different methods has worked wonders. I may even take this to work. :)

Have you had much success brewing gongfu at work?

KittyLovesTea

I’m lucky in the fact that my mother is my boss and the only other person I work alongside is my Aunt and they don’t mind me taking time to brew my tea. Gongfu is easier than Gaiwan as I can just pour myself a glass full and carry on until my cup is empty then I just take 2 minutes out to get another cup. Most of the time I just take bags or empty bags for mixtures but I dislike using bags for natural tea hence the Gongfu. :)

NofarS

You are lucky. I could never do that at my job, and I have to settle for stuffing tea into bags. That’s why I keep the best tea for home. Although, I may try to get away with a small teapot, a thermos of hot water and a cup…

Starfevre

I bought a Breville and a Zojirushi to work. I’m not supposed to have them, but no one really cares. So I can brew pots, but the slower methods are usually frowned upon a little bit. Although I’m really a beginner at gongfu and gaiwans anyway.

We went kicking around a local asian supermarket today in search of a gaiwan (no luck) and any other random gems we could find. So we picked out a couple of things to try.

I have to say, the price of this jasmine green is really the only reason I picked it up. 150g for sub-$3, in a neat little blue tin. The tin probably isn’t airtight, and I don’t exactly have the faculties (or patience, really) to test that… but the seal is pretty darn impressive.

This tea is exactly what I expect from a Chinese restaurant, which, well, is because this is probably the exact tea I get from a Chinese restaurant. A light floral flavor, the green tea barely coming in at the end of the flavor, a mild but noticeable astringency. Compared to the Jasmine Pearls I have from Mad Hat, the flavor of this tea (particularly the Jasmine flavor) is much more subdued.

They had four different Jasmine teas by Fujian tea, one in a yellow square tin as pictured, one in a red square tin, the blue cylindrical tin that I bought, and then a green cylindrical tin. No differentiation other than a serial number up top that might mean something (mine is 2063). Well, and all of the writing that I don’t understand may mean something too, but I just assume it says Jasmine Tea in Chinese :).

I might keep this around. The quality definitely isn’t that of the pearls from Mad Hat (and I’m eventually going to want to try the pearls from Teavivre), but man… at this price… SO CHEAP. IT IS SO INSANELY CHEAP. Sorry, had to get that out.

I bought the yellow tin at our Asian market after seeing reviews on here. I agree – insanely cheap and not too shabby.

Congratulations! I saw on Facebook that Teavivre posted that you will be getting five free samples! :) Enjoy!

Dylan Oxford

Ha, did they? That’s awesome!

Dylan Oxford

I see it now, so did Blake!

Jillian

It’s not too bad for a cheap jasmine, IMO.

Dylan Oxford

And what’s funny, Missy actually likes this more than our more spendy jasmine pearls, because the jasmine flavor itself is so much more toned down.

Now this my friends, is good jasmine tea! It’s lightly fragranced and not artificial smelling or tasting, so you don’t feel like you’re drowning in a vat of perfume. The base is nice, a little bit coarser than the A & D version, but it still goes down quite smoothly.

This one fell pretty short night the night before last. It was very heavy on the jasmine and quite bitter. I brewed all of them at 176 for 1 minute. That was the instructions on the Teavivre package. None of the other packages had clear instructions. So one ring to rule them all. I think in the future I may have to try a lower temperature and see if I can get rid of that bitterness.

Some jasmine teas really are just bitter and soapy. :(

Missy

I wondered if it was the tea or I should try different brewing parameters.

TeaBrat

might be a little of both…

I was busy when we made this so I kinda forgot about it while it was sitting right next to my laptop :/. I think that probably affected the taste, but I’ll try to be as objective as possible.

I get a nice, fresh, floral aroma from the cup. I can’t say it’s specifically jasmine, but seems fresh enough. Unfortunately, I also get a ton of bitter green tea smell too. I think, largely, that’s a result of me letting it sit so long before drinking it, but I also think to some extent it as to do with the tea. It’s just too bitter and not flavorful enough to compensate for the bitterness. The instructions say boiling water for 7 mins which seems like a lot for green tea , so I think it could just be a lower quality tea. It was also pretty cheap :)

I’m going to have to give this one another shot sometime…just don’t know when.

Preparation

Jillian

Yeah the instructions confused me too. I generally nix the boiling water and that seems to make it taste decent.

Jason

Very true. I just need a variable temp kettle now. The one I have is not very exact….basically boiling and not boiling :(

Yakki

Boil the water, take it off the heat source, let set for about 15 minutes, then try steeping the tea, but for about 3 or 4 mins. The first time I had this was at a friend’s house and she just murdered the tea. It can actually be quite good, but you have to be gentle with it.

So floral and strong. I’m increasing my rating for this one. It’s so grody outside, but I feel like I’m in Hawaii! Better piping hot than warm. Very earthy.

Final thoughts: I could take a bath in this one.

Got a sample of this from Jillian (thank you so much!) and gave it a whirl this morning. I thought it was a fairly average jasmine; no outstanding notes, no detracting characteristics. Hubby thought it was pretty good. Not one I’ll actively seek out, but not a bad tea at all.
