I received this tea as part of the Tea Party sampler from Mandala Tea. I don’t exactly hate the smell of jasmine but I certainly don’t particularly like it. I had very low expectations for this tea but since I’m on journey to expand my tea knowledge I was prepared to give it a fair shot.
Okay, so while I wasn’t too impressed with the smell of this tea the taste was pleasantly surprising. It’s buttery smooth, the jasmine is very subtle, and there are some delicate floral notes. After 4 steepings I can’t tell if the jasmine smell has decreased significantly or if I’ve just grown accustomed to it. I do find this tea very relaxing.
