Back to the sample pack! This one is pretty tasty as well. I’ve had Green teas with Jasmine in the past, but it’s been far too long to make a comparison. All I can say is, I rather liked it. Just some sugar to sweeten it, and away I went.
“Sipdown no. 82 of the year 2014. Two sipdowns today and neither were samples. Yay! If I needed an easily portable jasmine green with a Chinese green tea base, I might consider buying this again....” Read full tasting note

Jasmine tea is the oldest known scented tea, and ours begins its life in the gardens of Hunan Province. The rich soil and fluctuations in daily temperature yield a fragrant leaf which is further scented with delicate white Jasmine blossoms. During summer, these are gathered daily by the banks of the Min River and repeatedly mated each night with the prepared tea, naturally embracing all of the flowers’ scent. When brewed, this smooth, organic green tea has layers of subtle fragrance and hints of moonlight. It is a most romantic tea, and, like a bowl of fresh picked flowers, will bring the joy of summer to your every sip.

My favorite Jasmine Green tea thus far, very natural and complex, with the right amount of sweetness. I enjoy this tea with a bit of honey, it extends the natural sweetness into a nice afterglow. The jasmine aroma is subtle and earthy, and not “perfumy” or unpleasant like in other jasmine teas that I’ve tried, and the green tea is present and flavorful- a bit smoky even. I try not to steep this particular tea for more than three minutes, but I’ve actually enjoyed a cup without too much astringence even after leaving the bag in for the time it took me to shower in the morning.
A random teabag that I picked up from I-don’t-know-where….
The aroma here is of jasmine, but the taste is of green tea. It’s okay, but I wouldn’t buy this one. The leaves in the teabag aren’t quite dust, but they’re aren’t whole leaf, either.
Entirely drinkable, moderately enjoyable.
I don’t drink too many teas that are pre-bagged, unless it comes to work or when I’m lazy. However, I’m very happy with the Monkey King Jasmine Green Tea. Its one of the best jasmine green teas i’ve had that is pre-bagged, and the flavor is great. The jasmine flavor isn’t overpowering so you can taste the green tea which is pretty decent. Sometimes I drink this one with a little honey, but usually I drink it plain since the jasmine flavor isn’t too strong.
This tea brought back nostalgia from holidays in Asia. This highly floral and perfumed Green tea is perfect for accompanying or following a heavy meal as it tastes very cleansing and fresh. I agree with the previous posts that it is a very ‘Chinesse Restaurant’ tea because thats what I thought as soon as I tasted this. A true good quality Jasmine tea that is definitely worth trying.
