The super sweet scent of this in dry form actually enticed Hubby to have some with me during dinner tonight! I mean, it really is very sweet-smelling, and Hubby’s got a very big sweet tooth. It was nice to have with Korean bulgogi tonight, but maybe the actual sweetness of the marinade overtook the sweetness from the jasmine aroma so I noticed more of the bitterness in the tea this time. Still enjoyable and a nice change from the usual iced tea with dinner, but I’ll try another tea with Korean next time. Sencha worked well before; maybe Genmaicha Sencha next.
Our version of the classic Chinese green tea is mellow and refined. A blend of green tea with jasmine blossoms produces a light yellow infusion with a full-bodied jasmine scent. Floral flavours initially dominate but are tempered by a hearty earthiness and a brisk, fresh finish. A popular green tea, great for every day drinking.
