Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea.

This is really good. An interesting take on the traditional jasmine. The smoke is very subtle, very-barely-there when I first started sipping, now that I’m nearly done with the cup the smoke has developed a bit, but it never becomes a strong smoky presence. It is apparent, but not overwhelmingly so. It is an interesting contrast to the sweet, exotic jasmine. The smoke seems to bring out some of the sweeter notes of the jasmine, emphasizing them. This is so pleasantly sweet that it almost tastes “dessert-y” to me.

I don’t know that this is my favorite take on jasmine, but, I am really enjoying it. It’s different, but it’s quite good.

This sounds like such an intriguing tea!

I might like smokey jasmine but not as tea. Just outside with nature and burning it, might make for interesting inhale; an intoxicating smell or is aroma best wording.

Wow, I never would have come up with that combo on my own if I were a tea blender! Smoke and jasmine, hmm.

@seule771, maybe you could burn a jasmine incense?

This tea sounds so interesting. I love jasmine but I’m not a fan of smokey teas, I wonder if this would be the one to convert me? I’m curious enough to want to try such a combination.

When not poking fun you guys are nicely supportive. Anyhow, I used to burn incense but husband says it is cancer causing agent over time; well the burning aspect of it. If that Jasmine is that potent, would it not set off alarm like that fondue pot that folks tend to burn and the smell lingers for days til high heaven gets here and never does.

I think I am saying thank you. I must admit, Jasmine and I will not co-exist. My lost evidently!

@Invader Zim: the smoke is very interesting in this tea, because it doesn’t taste overtly of SMOKE when it mingles with the jasmine. Instead it enhances some of the tones of jasmine that I never really got to know before. It’s really a delightful way to experience jasmine.

This is what I would consider an unusual yet ballsy flavor! I think that is why I LOVE Shanti Tea! They are NOT afraid to push the envelop! This is neat! Here’s why…

I’m quite the fickle pickle when it comes to jasmine teas. I usually find them either artificial tasting, too much like everyone elses Jasmines, not enough flavor, or too much flavor. Rarely do I find a flavored Jasmine that makes sense. This one is different in every sense!

It has a HINT of Smoke…just a slight HINT. It works well! It counteracts the Jasmine but you can still taste it. It’s almost the best of both worlds. But I think the smoke also adds a bit of a pepper taste to it. It’s truly unique and pretty good!

Interesting on every level. I like it!

Smoke AND Jamsmine?!! My brain is refusing to accept that combination as possible O.o
