When I saw teawing’s review of this, I knew I had seen this tin before. We have a fairly large Asian market and I go there every now and then. Today I had a good excuse to go and there it was! This was only $2.39 for the small tin which is 120 grams.
Upon opening, there is a nice, strong jasmine aroma. It is strong, but it doesn’t accost you like the jasmine black I bought at A Southern Season.
I prepared it as I would any green, and not as the tin recommends.
Steeped, the aroma is really lovely. The tea is smooth with a little astringent edge, but quite good, and pretty unbelievable for the price. I could happily sip away on this regularly.
Thank you, teawing, for alerting us to this little treasure! There is another listing for it under Jasmine tea by Sunflower, and I think Fujian is just the distributor, but the tin is unmistakeable!
