Tea sample provided by Teavivre for review
I’ve tried a few different jasmine green teas, and the aroma of dry and wet leaves from this sample got me excited. It made me think of moss and plants after rain.
Onto drinking the stuff, the jasmine is very strong, followed by spice, green tea flavour, and lingering floral aftertaste. Everything is very sharp on my tongue, and the green tea stays comforting and not bitter.
Second steep brought out more jasmine, with the green tea staying strong. My final third and fourth steeps still were tasty without becoming bland.
Looking forward to playing with the brewing settings with this sampler and comparing with the Jasmine Pearls. So far I really like this one, it’s the best loose leaf jasmine green tea I’ve had.
100ml gaiwan, 2 tsps, 4 steeps
