From TeaFrog

Made from the finest Chung Hao green tea from China, this fragrant Jasmine tea used to be reserved exclusively for the Imperial Court. The tea is scented with young jasmine blossoms, harvested during the day when they are closed and added to the tea as they open in the evening. The leaves of the tea and the jasmine flowers are layered and left until the fragrance of the flower has been absorbed by the tea.

This Jasmine tea has a lightly perfumed aroma and a sweet, delicate taste and should be served without cream or sweetener. It is low in caffeine and is suitable as an afternoon or a dinner tea to aid digestion and to cleanse the palette.

This is a very heavy jasmine tea. The scent is heavy and the mouth feel is heavy so that they seem to match in weight making the strength seem appropriate.
I’m pretty sure there is a hint of spice from the tea base to which is really neat. Like the way arugula is spicy so I know plants can exhibit that flavor. Never expected that from a tea base but it makes the whole blend exciting!

I’m not normally a fan of green tea, but I don’t mind jasmine tea from time to time. I bought this mostly because my girlfriend loves jasmine tea and I wanted to give it a go.

I have to say… my mind hasn’t changed that much. I’m still not a huge fan of green tea. The jasmine definitely makes it more bearable, but it’s still very much green tea (and I brewed it at a low temperature, 75-80C). It’s also a little on the astringent side… and the fact that I brewed it at such a low temperature means that this is somewhat surprising to me. I would be expecting less astringency.

It’s quite jasmine-heavy, which is… nice? I think? Perhaps it’s a little too heavy on the jasmine though. The smell is lovely, provided that you like jasmine of course. The colour is very clear with a yellow tinge.

It holds up to multiple brews quite well, so you can get your money’s worth (it’s not the cheapest of teas).

I personally wouldn’t get this tea again, but then again I’m not a green tea drinker. While it’s here I’ll have it occasionally when I fancy something a little bit different.

This tea hasn’t been my favourite and I guess that’s why it’s taking me so long to sip down. This morning it seemed bitter. On my last review I had noted there was no bitterness. I wonder what’s up with that? I brewed at 185 and last time was 175 so maybe that little bit of temperature makes a big difference. One more cup of this left and I’ll be glad when it’s gone. It’s not really bad but not really good either.

Flavors: Astringent, Bitter, Jasmine
