Don’t let this white tea’s light, dainty and sophisticated side fool you. We gave its long tippy leaves a lively and aromatic twist you won’t be able to resist. Heavily scented with jasmine blossoms, this beautiful tea from Fujian Province is like spring in a cup. Fresh and subtly floral, it’s the perfect way to class up any tea party.

White tea from Fujian Province, scented with jasmine flowers.

I got about 15g of this one to try since it’s kinda expensive, and I am finally getting around to trying it, haha. It smells so good, a very strong jasmine and floral scent. At first I thought this would be a green tea, but nope- it’s white! It also tastes nice! Definitely jasmine, and a floral tone. This is really nice with a bit of sugar. I like this.

I love jasmine, rose, and floral teas in general. The first time that I smelled this, I knew that it was going to be amazing, because it made me think of the Valentine’s bouquet that I got last month, full of fragrant blooms, and made me instantly happy. I own a lot of jasmine teas and this one definitely has the strongest fragrance by far. It smells so very good. Sweet, honeyed, heady jasmine and a juicy, rose-like scent as well. Mmm.
And that’s exactly how it tastes – rich, beautiful jasmine and juicy, tart roses with that vanilla-honey sweetness that blooms often develop. I love it. It tastes romantic and beautiful and so strong.
I’m going to be purchasing a big tin of this, and fear that it might have just overthrown all of the other jasmine teas in my cupboard…

Sampled this in-store today and found that I liked it so much that I might find a way to justify a wee purchase. Jasmine fresh and light. Perfect for this spring light and optimism.

But hey, it costs $30 PLUS tax for 100 grams.

Arby

You don’t have to spend very much money if you only buy 10-25g at a time. flawless buying habit

@Evol – There shouldn’t be any tax on tea – regardless of whether you’re buying from DT or other companies. Sometimes you can get taxed on it when it comes in fancy ass tins/samplers/kits, but really that’s a tax on the container and not the tea itself. Just straight up tea (speaking specifically about DT, for example, the silver bags of tea or tins of tea) has no tax as it’s an ‘unprepared food/good’. That’s where the tax on samplers and stuff comes in – technically at that point it’s no longer ‘unprepared’.

Evol Ving Ness

Hmm, thank you for that, Ms. Strange. Very helpful.

And Arby, I might just do the wee bit. But honestly, I find moderation a huge challenge.

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.

Arby

Is this similar in intensity to the jasmine dragon pearl one they have (or at least used to have, idk anymore).

Roswell Strange

I’d want to do a side by side to really be sure, but just going by memory I think this is stronger. Also, we DO still have the Dragon Pearls, but not for much longer – they were recently retired.

Arby

I wish they would email us before the retired any teas. I want to know before they stop shipping it to stores.

Roswell Strange

They used to, back when they still did the monthly newsletter (so like, 2015ish…) – don’t know why they stopped the practice. The ones that have most recently been retired are English Breakfast, Dragon Pearls, and Lime Gelato. Stores aren’t receiving any more Lime Gelato – and likely wont get more Dragon Pearls either. However, we’re still going to be receiving English Breakfast for a while and both Dragon Pearls and English Breakfast should be available online for much longer than in stores.

Arby

Good to know, thanks.
