A long, long time ago DT used to carry a Jasmine Silver Needle tea. It was fairly good.
This is definitely really similar to that one, though not all bud for the tea leaf. I think if you liked that one way back in the day then this is something that would definitely make a really natural replacement. Or even really if you like jasmine teas in general.
This one is supposed to be separated from our other jasmine teas just by the intensity of the jasmine notes/scent in the blend – I agree, it’s very strong and very fresh/natural. I felt like someone had shoved a bouquet up my nose when I first got to smell the dry leaf, though in a good way. That carried over in the taste; just rich, full bodied fresh heady jasmine notes. Only weird thing for me was that it had a distinct nuttiness to the undertones that was surprising for me; like a jasmine and almond note combo. Or even marzipan-like? I still don’t know where that came from, but it had me scratching my head.
I liked it a lot, though!
Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
