This is a very pleasant, pale sort of jasmine. I think I could actually use more than a teaspoon of leaves per small cup with this one and not have it taste too strong or bitter. It’s funny, at this point I associate jasmine tea with the Chinatown neighborhood of Houston, as we tend to get served it by default every time we go to dim sum or out to any restaurant. Drinking it makes me think that I’m about to eat delicious vegetable bao. Mmmm…

Anyway, if you’re in the mood for jasmine, you cannot go wrong with this one. The aroma is really full, and the taste doesn’t disappoint. It’s a much better jasmine than I’ve had in a while. Definitely more pronounced than the average fare, without being cloyingly floral. Yum!

This cup is much, much more floral and lacks the offsetting sweetness that the pearls have.

Very high quality, pretty leaves, though.

Normally, I am a fan of black teas when I’m waking up for the day, but I got some samples from Teavivre last night and this smelled so incredible that it was all I could do to wait until morning. (Actually, it smells so incredible that I kept sniffing my teapot while waiting for my water to be ready. Seriously.)

Steeping mellows the scent a bit, of course, but it is still wonderful and jasminey. It brews to a beautiful golden color. The flavor is a bit mellower than I was expecting, but it’s very light and sweet and absolutely delicious. It kind of lingers, almost clinging to the tongue, in a really enjoyable way.

I was expecting to like this one since I’ve been on a massive jasmine kick (my flavors-to-seasons associations are a bit off, I think), but oh my gosh, I think I might be in love.

(This is mostly a follow up from my last tasting note.)

Prepared this in a larger vessel today, it’s not exactly standard teapot size but close enough for me because I drink by myself. ;) The brew was not too bitter or overwhelming at all. It’s not delicate like the pearls, but continues to be a solid jasmine green tea. Personally I always find jasmine green tea to be easily enjoyable, and this one is no exception.

Just finished a bag of this tea. I ordered it just to see if it was any different from the ones I get at Chinese Restaurants :P. Well, I guess they are of higher quality, but since I know that I’m not the hugest fan of flavoured teas it was nothing but an ‘alright’ tea. I’d take Gunpowder or Dragonwell tea over this any day, and perhaps that’s why it took me so long to finish this 100g bag. The tea is good for up to 3 steeps, but be careful to watch the steep times since the jasmine flavour can be quite overpowering if steeped for too long. 2min/3min/4min was ideal for me.

I use this one for serving with food but don’t care for it by itself. It doesn’t hold a candle to their Premium Dragon pearls or jasmine Silver Needle White!

In terms of what can be summarized as the better jasmine green from TeaVivre, I would say this is second to the Dragon Pearls. The jasmine in this loose blend is not as sweet and light as its rolled counterparts. Also, this tea is smooth, but it does get bitter quick, as in 2nd steep quick. Maybe it’s my water quality. shrugs Overall, this is quite tasty but lacks in flavour and re-steep quality. Far better than the last loose jasmine green in my cupboard.

This tea smells and taste of jasmine. The jasmine flavor is not overpowering, but it is the only flavor I get. This tea is enjoyable but not exceptional.

Jasmine tea, and pretty much what i would expect from a Jasmine tea. A bit too much Jasmine for my taste but i can still tell this is a quality tea. Lovely green tea here but seems to be second to the jasmine and floral notes. If you love jasmine this one is for you!
