20 years ago, I used to drink quite a bit of loose leaf tea I purchased from a long closed tea shop in New Orleans. This jasmine tea brings me back to the those days. It is like bumping into a favorite old friend on the street. Having said that, and not to talk negatively about that old friend, it seems a bit unsophisticated. I suspect there are much finer examples of Jasmine Oolong available. I think I would prefer less Jasmine. Still, it is a fine addition to my month old tea stash.
This is my favorite single tea from Teavana. The aroma of the Jasmine Oolong has an earthiness to it, but among the undertone of the tea, you easily find a pleasant sweetness. This undertone is what is represented in your cup along with a touch of smokiness that this top quality Oolong offers. I love this one before bed time or anytime I’m stressed.
I have to agree with a couple of the other here. While my wife enjoys this tea, I find it barely drinkable. I have made this tea about 10 times and have played with infusion times and the amount of tea used. Despite my efforts the tea always comes out the same….overly bitter and WAY to perfumey for my tastes. I have tasted much better Jasmine teas.
