drank Jasmine Green Tea by Ahmad Tea
141 tasting notes

The bag has a sweet jasmine aroma, as does the tea, though without milk and sugar it tastes like straw, and rather bitter and astringent. I should say I am not a great fan of green tea, which often tastes like straw to me. Sweetener brings out the jasmine taste, and the addition of some milk reduces the bitterness, but doesn’t get rid of the straw taste entirely. The jasmine flavor is pleasant enough; I just can’t manage to like the green tea.

I am a part time college instructor and also work in human resources in a family company. Apart from a rare cup of Lipton I drank in my parents’ home, I am a newbie to the world of tea. I have enjoyed Twinings and Ahmad bagged teas over the past month, and I am now just beginning to try loose leaf teas from Teavivre, Adagio, and Della Terra.

So far, I prefer black tea to green tea, and prefer to add cream or milk and sweetener to black tea. Unless the tea is white, green, or herbal, you can assume that I have added cream/milk and sugar to the tea in my reviews/ratings.
