Years ago I was given a jasmine oolong from Guangdong, that was one of the teas that set me on my tea journey. It was wonderful mix of jasmine scent and oolong fruitiness. Over the years I have suffered through many jasmine scented teas looking for that tea. They are always the same — over powering jasmine perfume that completely covers the tea. Until now. This tea is what I’ve been looking for all these years and its not even a scented tea — jasmine never touched this tea. The fragrance of the liqueur is like walking through a garden and catching the smell of jasmine in full bloom. But the taste is a slight cream with the orchid taste fans of Dan Cong oolongs love. Jasmine flavor follows, but the quality of the tea shines through. Mouth feel is wonderful with long satisfying after taste. A gaiwan will make the jasmine more pronounce while a clay pot gives you more fruit and a subtle jasmine — a Chao Zhou pot gives you a wonderful balance of fruit, cream, jasmine, & orchid.
