Used a 6 cup pot. The bloom is very pretty, a combination of white and red flowers rising up out of the nest of green tea leaves. It is huge spanning nearly the width of the pot and ¾ of the height.

The smell of jasmine is a bit strong, but in the sip it is a light taste (pleasant). There is also a hint of cinnamon (interesting) and unfortunately a bit of a sour taste that was in the summer bouquet (eewww). It is not undrinkable. It is just a little off. The liquor is dark for a green.

I left the water in the pot steeping, close to an hour, until I was ready for the second cup. It was very good. A blast of cinnamon followed by jasmine at the back of the sip. The sour nasties have left the brew. Perhaps this is the secret to these teas – let them steep.

Excellent center piece at a table with friends. The bloom rates a 100. The first cup was a 40. The following a solid 70+. Since you don’t really drink these for the tea, I will skew the rating on the bloom side.

I love watching blooming teas, but I have yet to find one that tastes great. This was no exception. It’s a mediocre green tea with hints of jasmine and chrysanthemum flavor. At least it was pretty.

Angrboda

That’s my usual experience with flowering teas too. They’re so pretty that I’m expecting something earth-shatteringly awesome. And then I just get ordinary green tea. I always get a little disappointed.

Rebecca White

Have you tried the teavana ones? I’ve heard some good things about the new peach one, but it’s so freaking expensive!

Angrboda

No, I’m from Denmark, so Teavana (and most US based tea webshops) are more or less off limits for me. Either they don’t ship to Europe or if they do it would be way too expensive with shipping and customs and VAT and such like.

Light on the Jasmine Scent – the color of an oolong-like tea…this flowering beauty is a gentle and sweet friend. It’s green but it’s on the sweeter side. Thirst Quenching. I like it!

I oversteeped and the beautiful little red flowers lost their color! :-( And the tea has a little bit of that astringent taste to it. But jasmine green tea is a standard for me, so I know it normally tastes lovely! Still, a very nice jasmine aroma, and light on taste, not so much green flavored, more jasmine flavored. My younger son said it smelled like candy, but not great candy. :-)
