You really have to like jasmine to enjoy this tea, as the jasmine pretty much overpowers everything else, in my opinion. I’m not that big a fan of jasmine, so I was rather disappointed by this tea, unfortunately. Though the jasmine does give a nice sweet flavor to the tea, I would prefer for the other flavors to come forward a bit more, but I can’t say I hate this tea. I just find it rather so-so.

This is quite tasty mixed with Teavana’s Rooibos Sweet Amore, so that’s how I’ve been drinking it lately. The Sweet Amore adds some light, fruity flavors that bring the jasmine flavor to the background a bit more. I very much like this combination! Next, I will try it with the Rooibos Tropica, as Teavana suggests.

Bio

I blame half of my tea obsession on Japan and the time I spent there in a study abroad program. Tea is everywhere in Japan, and I drank it daily while staying with my host family. When I came back home, I found myself craving it!

The other half of my tea obsession I blame on my job as a barista at Borders, where we serve Tazo loose leaf teas. I hadn’t even considered loose leaf teas a possibility until I started working there! The freshness and the difference in quality really turned me on to loose leaf teas.

So bit by bit, I’ve been increasing my tea self-education, and I drink tea at least once a day. I love trying new kinds, and unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it), the more I learn, the more I want to try!

In addition to tea, I also enjoy books and music. If you would like, look for me on last.fm (user: giragirataiyou) or Goodreads (user: thexquietxlife). :)
