Jasmine teas are always a funny blend if you ask me. The floral nature of the tea can always be a little misleading and therefore we must as tea drinkers remember that floral doesn’t mean sweet, no matter what our nose tells us. On that note I was pleasantly surprised at the subtle character this jasmine green had, compared to other jasmine blends I’ve tasted in the past. Honestly I wasn’t given much freedom to experiment with this tea, as I was at a buddy’s house and the water was boiled for me and I had to use a tea ball, but all that aside I really ended up enjoying the tea. Would probably have added honey if I had it available… we shall see in the future. Easily over steeped… becareful. Beautiful golden color. Medium body. Enjoy!
Mountain Spring Jasmine
There wasn’t a description on the website as it only comes in the sampler tins, but this is another green jasmine by the same company: “Organic Spring Jasmine green tea is made of smooth Chinese loose leaf green tea leaves naturally scented by layers of Arabian jasmine buds. With an intoxicating aroma and a piquant yet rounded cup, Organic Spring Jasmine green tea in a silken tea pouch is our twist on a Chinese classic jasmine tea in a gourmet teabag.”
