Jasmine teas are probably my favorites within the range of Japanese bottled iced teas. Weirdly though, they are not available year ’round. From what I can recall, they show up in the summer and then once fall starts disappear again. This saddens me.
I have no idea what the base tea here is, I assume it’s green, but the bottle doesn’t actually say and and ingredients only list “jasmine tea” and, interestingly, vitamin C. Not sure what’s up with that.
This tea was great! Very refreshing and strongly scented. The low temperature did not conceal the jasmine-ness at all, giving it a noticeable character without having to rely on the bitterness of the tea. Great for a day of walking around Yokohama. And finally something that’s not a coca-cola product!
