Origin: Fuding, Fujian, China

Ingredients: Premium green tea processed with jasmine flowers

Harvest time: April 22, 2014

Taste: Subtle taste with scent and flavor of jasmine flowers

Brew: 1-2 teaspoons for 8oz of water. Brew at 194 ºF (90 ºC) for 1 to 2 minutes (exact time depends on your taste – a longer time will give the tea a stronger taste and color)

Another very flavorful, fragrant, jasmine tea from Teavivre… but this one is green!

Thanks again to Angel and the team! Or wait, did I buy this one? Hrmm. Ah well, thanks to them anyway!

Compared to the pearls, I think this one is just a little bit less awesome. The jasmine is much stronger in this than on the pearls, and the green tea seems a little less delicate, a little stronger.

Missy and I both prefer a tad more subtlety in our jasmine teas, so I believe we’re going to be sticking with the pearls. However, this is a very strong contender.

Man, a little jasmine tea is good for the soul. Nice and smooth with that fragrant and relaxing sweetness that only jasmine possesses. Not quite as sweet as other jasmines I’ve had, but it’s very good. The leaves are beautiful (albeit not quite as beautiful as pearls) and have little pieces of jasmine petals scattered throughout.

This isn’t sweet per say but it’s rather smooth…I didn’t really expect that…but I am glad that it IS. The floral tastes on the tongue are nice, gentle, and not perfumy-bitter floral flavors and I LOVE that!

As it cools a bit it is a little sweeter! I like this! It’s dandy!

It’s been a while since I had this tea, and as I decided to work my way through my remaining samples, I picked this one. It’s pretty good, and it’s certainly a lot better than most Jasmine teas that I get at restaurants, but it’s not great. It’s sweeter than some jasmine, but I still prefer my Japanese greens.

It seems to be a trend that the Chinese invent something, and the Japanese refine it. They did it with green tea, bonsai, single-edged swords, ikebana (Japanese art of flower arrangement), and probably a few more that I can’t think of off the top of my head.

I hate to keep going on about how much I love these Teavivre teas, but I can’t help it! Teavivre has completely eliminated my negative predispositions about flowery and white teas.

On the top of my most shunned list was Jasmine tea. When I tried some other (not to be named) brands, I felt like I was swilling cups of perfume. Not only is this Silver Jasmine Green tea a pleasant sipping blend, but it is also full-flavored and sweet.

The color is a semi-deep amber when steeped for two minutes at 195 degrees. I didn’t expect that hue from a green tea.

The manifestation of jasmine is strong in this tea, but when combined with the sweetness in the flavor and the subtle green tea taste, everything works together peacefully to produce a very palatable experience. Altogether, you are rewarded with a rich sweet jasmine tea without bitterness.

I only have one more Teavivre tea to sample. I am sad because I always look forward to the tasty surprises that these teas spring on me and I will miss them. But, the good news is, my shopping list is loaded and ready to order more of these great teas from China!

My next order from a tea company will be from Teavivre. I was not planning on ordering their Mo Li Yin Hao, because I usually order the Jasmine Pearls and the Yin Hao doesn’t resteep as well as the pearls-IMHO. I just might reconsider though, and I’m glad you enjoy it!

Stoo

It seems that you can’t go wrong with any of the Teavivre teas, Scott! I hope you enjoy this one too!

My first jasmine tea w a jasmine black from Southern Season. It almost made me sick! Too much perfume! I am glad I tried some GOOD jasmine tea!

Stoo

That was my gripe about jasmine teas. The ones that I had tried before made me feel like I was doing perfume shooters!

Mmmmmmm!!! This is an incredible jasmine!!! Just the right amount of floral with a green tea aftertaste. The green tea comes out more as it cools. This just might be the most perfect jasmine tea in the world!

The aroma of the dry leaves is awesome. The leaves are dark, wavy, and ultra skinny. This tastes a lot like what you get in good Chinese restaurants, except better.

The last time I had a tea like this, it was an unnamed Jasmine at a Thai restaurant. It was soooo good, but they left the tea leaves loose in the teapot. So 10-15 minutes in, my fantastic tea experience was sullied with overwhelming bitterness. This is that tea minus the bitter. Just plain deliciousness!

Ah, jasmine tea. No matter how many affairs I have with other flavors and kinds of tea, you will always be a constant in my heart. I took this sample with my to my sister’s last night and brewed everyone some tea after dinner. The fragrance of the leaves was lovely. The tea itself is very jasmine-y and very enjoyable. I found a flavor a tiny bit harsh though. It was in no way bad, but it didn’t have the smooth silkiness I’ve had in other jasmine teas. And I found myself wishing the tea flavor was a little more present. It was mostly flower, which is fine with me, but a little more green flavor would greatly enhance the experience.
The second steep was slightly less jasmine-y and more tea-y. The tea seems to be kind of roast-y. It didn’t taste all the green and maybe more like white tea.
I would have tried for a third steep, but it was late.

All in all, this is a great tea. It’s probably one of the better jasmine teas I’ve had. I can’t wait to try the jasmine pearls! :)

I think I’m going to hold off on rating this for now because I really don’t love jasmine tea for the most part, however I did like the jasmine pearls from Teavivre a lot. This pretty much tastes like the jasmine green tea I got from Adagio and I really feel like I don’t know what I’m talking about. It’s pretty much like any other decent loose leaf jasmine tea I’ve ever tried. It is pleasant enough but very floral and a bit drying.

Sometimes shorter steeps lessen the floral intensity.

I used 1 tsp of tea for this cup.
I love jasmine teas and Teavivre has really set the bar high for my expectations of jasmine teas.

This one is a good green jasmine, not quite as sweet or silky as either of the pearls that they offer but it pairs well with meals. The jasmine isn’t overwhelming or perfumey. There is a tad bit of astringency in the aftertaste. This is a decent, economical choice.

Chilled, this is quite refreshing, with less astringency than hot.

Teavivre jasmine comparison coming soon….lol

I guess even with 2 days off the person who delivers mail to my apartment complex felt the need to do as little work as possible on Tuesday. I had no idea this was delivered, along with a textbook. Thanks for your hard work, postal employee.

So now that I have my next round of samples from Teavivre, I can get to drinking them!

This is a bit too floral for my liking on the first steep. I was hoping it’d be better on the second, like maybe really subtle, but it’s not, although it’s vastly improved now. I can at least drink it this time without freaking out that it feels like I’m drinking a flower. I do like the dryness of the tea.

I’m going to try it again and maybe only steep it for a minute the first time and see how that goes. I am just not completely a fan of jasmine, so it’s easy for it to be too much for me. I like the dragon pearls a lot better.
