I’ve never really liked jasmine because I always felt that the jasmine was too overpowering and completely ruined the gentle nature of the underlying teas that I was drinking.

Then I actually found some good jasmine tea that is scented properly and enhances rather than detracts from the overall taste and quality. This jasmine is created with silver needle tea buds and has a very consistent light flavor that reaches a peak by the 2nd-3rd steeping.

I highly recommend this tea!

Sounds interesting. I had a Jasmine Pearl tonight and it was tasty but seemed almost a tad strong. I didn’t mind it but couldn’t taste the tea as clearly. This one sounds worth trying. Also intrigued by the peak at steep 2-3. I wonder how that is achieved.

My humans totally agree about the overpowering quality of Jasmine and are the same about Earl Grey. Often, the oil of bergamot is too strong. Tea Forte seems to have it right. So does The English Tea Store on this free sample we tried: http://bit.ly/8dxjfY (they call it Buckingham Palace Garden Party Tea).

Not quite sure but I find the 2nd – 3rd steeping to have the most flavor and be the most soothing.

Well, I’m stumped. This is a more delicate jasmine than the Jasmine Snow Dragon, and I can’t decide which I like better. This one shares the same warm sweetness, but the slight perfumey note of the snow dragon gives way to a light creaminess (vanilla?) here. This is definitely a better place for curious jasmine-haters to start and maybe finish too. I’ll just have to alternate between them until I find myself hoping one or the other is up next.
