I brewed this one twice. The first time I goofed and blended it with an unsmoked lapsang not realizing that it had a delicate Darjeeling base. I steeped it on its own the second time and it was perfect – it didn’t need to be blended with anything.
The tea smells perfumey but not in that heavy, cloying way that some jasmine teas do. Jasmine hits the nose first and is followed by rose water and a little nectarine. Thankfully, the brewed tea isn’t as strong as it smells. It’s got a subtle jasmine flavor, light malt, and a kiss of peach. A white grape sweetness emerges as it cools. Tastes similar to my Verdant Tea Yunnan Golden Jasmine black tea but I find the addition of the peach delightful.
