A little partner that joined me at the Chicago Field Museum, and I was hoping for it to be mediocre. Intelligentsia is the retailer of the Kilogram Tea Company, and the price is around 8.99 per bag lowering the temptation. But it’s actually a higher quality jasmine that did impress me. The Jasmine is strong and almost sweet in scent and taste. However, it was by no means overpowering and I got two solid cups, each soaked for 3 minutes with a fainter third cup that should have been steeped longer. Worst of all, it’s actually pretty creamy.
I’ve gotten Jasmine pearls the same quality for cheaper, but this is a really good bagged jasmine tea. I don’t think that I’d flock to buy it soon, yet it certainly made me slightly curious to try more of Kilogram’s and Intelligentsia’s offerings. So I’d recommend it, but not the $8.99 plus shipping.
