From SpecialTeas

Our new Yin Hao is a perfectly balanced aromatic green tea and a welcome addition to our ever-growing selection of NOP Certified Organic teas. This top grade jasmine scented green with white, downy tips infuses to a pale green cup with a delicate, sweet flavor.

Recommendations: Use 1 level tsp. per 6 oz. cup; heat fresh water until it is steaming briskly (not boiling); let steep for 1 ½ to 2 min. Good for multiple infusions.

Ingredients: Green tea, Jasmine blossoms

This is a very subtle tea. I like it, but I am not wild for it. Truth is, I just plain like black teas more. But, nonetheless, I will continue my quest to better understand the tea world and and varieties therein.

Starts off tasting a bit watery. For a brief moment I thought I brewed it a bit weak, but I don’t think so. I think it is just very subtle, because right after the initial “Hey, is there any tea in here?” comes a wave of mild, light-bodied taste reminiscent of brussle sprouts. It’s ever so slightly bitter. Maybe my water was a bit hotter than I thought? I eyeballed it. The sip finishes with a stronger (relatively) floral taste and smell. The aftertaste is pure jasmine.

Being a fan of sugar in my tea, I added a pinch of sugar after making the notes above. Overall, it tasets about the same, with the sweetness from the sugar coming in towards the middle and back ends, somewhat boosting the flavor.

Overall, I like it, and it seems to be a very nice tea, but for those who, like me, are new to green teas, I don’t recommend it. Maybe for the advanced green tea lovers.

It’s my favorite jasmine green tea so far and you are totally right about the bitterness but I enjoy it and prefer to call it flowery bitterness ;)

“Eyeballing” water temp is totally OK — get used to doing that and you’ll never have to travel with a thermometer again! As I am fond of saying: the itinerant monks in Asia didn’t carry scales or thermometers on their treks, so why should we? Use your senses, they won’t steer you wrong. It’s all an experiment.
