I’m a big fan of Jasmine and Earl Grey tea. These two combined made me question on whether they’d pair well together. The overall smell of the tea reminds me of a Jasmine perfume, so I was little skeptical at first.
Fortunately, this tea is delicious. The aroma seems a bit much at first, but the overall flavor is delicate and nice. It’s a sweet Jasmine/bergamot tea, that stays on the tongue a while after sipping down the tea. I brewed this tea at 160 F and steeped it for 25 seconds. I’ve noticed that if you brew the water any higher or steep the tea any longer than that, it becomes very astringent and intolerable. However, it’s a great tea once you learn the methods of brewing the water/figuring out the proper steeping time.
