My first time trying this tea was when I was 13 years old. I trained myself to be able to get past the bitter taste of tea. As I kept drinking it from day to day, the bitter taste became sweeter. The more tea leaves you brew, the stronger the fragrance and the taste.
I’ve been drinking this tea for the past 20 or so years, and this is my go to Jasmine green tea for after dinner desserts. Beware of over-steeping because it can easily get bitter. The actual tea leaves are more fragmented than higher quality leaves (ie Samovar), but if you brew it properly, the taste is actually almost on par. For the price, such a great value tea.
Very strong jasmine taste and an unexpected kick of caffeine to boot. This is the tea that gets me through the workday (usually in the bagged form), as it can be surprisingly forgiving if you forget about it and leave the bag to soak in the cup for a few hours — just add more hot water to dilute it and it’s fine.
I’m very picky with Jasmine teas mainly because I think they leave a strange aftertaste or tend to be bitter. This tea is probably the BEST bagged Jasmine tea I have ever had. It’s tasty and timid but still very floral and fun. It’s a light yellowish brown in color. I got it in a tea swap and was very pleased with the cup!
Normally I treat this tea as most other Chinese green teas (around 180-185 degrees F for 2-3 minutes), but I decided to follow the directions on the tin today: 3g of tea, pour boiling water, keep covered for about 5 minutes, then serve. The leaves held up extremely well, and my office is now filled with the pleasant aroma of Jasmine! :)
Ok, I drank this yesterday, but I’ve been drinking this tea for years thanks to my grandmother. It doesn’t get bitter if you let it steep for too long, it’s scent is good, and the flavor is smooth. The 120 gram tin costs $2.25 at one of the Asian markets around here. That’s beyond cheap, especially for a not too bad tea.
