Ugh. I could not get through the entire cup of this tea. I’ve never actually had either ginseng or jasmine teas, and these two flavors together completely overwhelmed me. It smelled pretty medicinal; I actually recoiled when I smelled the bag. The flavor was overwhelmingly rooty and herbal in an entirely unpleasing was. The aftertaste left a lot to be desired; it was almost soapy, and I couldn’t get the taste off my tongue. Most of this tea I dumped down the drain. I won’t be trying this again.

I’ll take it off your hands:)

This tea sounds frightening.

teaplz

I’d definitely give it to you, Cofftea, if I had more than one bag of it left. :\ I’m definitely probably going to hand it back to my boyfriend. I’m not the hugest fan of ginseng, but I certainly didn’t like it in tea form! It was definitely the dominant flavor, over the jasmine.

Cofftea

Adagio’s ginseng green is one of my favorites, and I love their Jasmine teas:)

Jillian

Yes, it definitely sounds like you got short-changed on the jasmine. Adagio and Harney & Sons both make a good jasmine tea in my opinion if you feel like giving it another shot. :)

Cofftea

Jillian is right, EVERY Jasmine tea Adagio sells is great. And so is their green ginseng.

teaplz

I definitely will probably try giving it another shot! Thanks for the recommendations, Jillian and Cofftea.

I think part of the reason why I didn’t enjoy this one at all was that there wasn’t any actual tea in it. The entire thing is completely herbal! From what I’ve read, jasmine is pretty delicate, and the ginseng just completely slapped me in the face. I might like it as a flavoring on top of itself, but pure ginseng flavor is pretty medicinal!

Cofftea

Oh yeah, that would be why! I personally don’t drink herbals alone unless I’m doing a tea review. My opinion is why drink fake tea?:) Maybe try it steeped in your favorite unflavored white or green tea instead of plain water?
