I was bored & ordered some Jasmine tea to try out, I haven’t had any for years, it never used to be my thing & I was dubious how i’d get along with it.

Turns out this one is nice, the jasmine isn’t too heavy & by the 3rd gongfu steep the leaf had opened & the taste & aroma reminds me of a banana flavouring they use for sweets. A bit like banana milkshake. This was the main flavour, stronger than the base still, but I think it was nicely paired up, nothing tasted wrong or off.

By later steeps the aroma faded as well as the base & was left drinking fragrant water.

I think gongfu really is a good way to drink this as you can control the amount of jasmine fragrance a lot easier, compared to a more heavy handed western approach.
