From DAVIDsTEA

Some flowers bloom but once a year, but this refreshing floral oolong tea is a perennial favourite. Made from Taiwanese oolong, its creamy base melds perfectly with the aromatic jasmine blossoms for a blend that’s as sweet as springtime itself. Bloomin’ good? We certainly think so.

How it tastes:

Creamy, refreshing, delicate and lightly floral

What makes it great:

● Oolongs like this one can be re-steeped multiple times, with each cup providing a new dimension of flavour.

● Need a moment of zen? Jasmine’s calming floral scent is used in aromatherapy to lift the spirits and boost creativity.

● This is our only scented oolong.

50 g of this tea makes around 10-12 16 oz cups of hot tea and 5-7 16 oz cups of iced tea.

1.25tsp for 300mL water @90C, steeped Western-style 3 minutes 45 seconds, drunk bare.

I received a new mug-and-infuser as a gift, so I’ve decided to keep this new infuser for white and oolong teas and keep my stained one (I know, I know, the disgrace!) for black teas.

Hmm, I thought, looking over my tea stash, I’m pretty low on whites and oolongs. Wait, what’s this? Jasmine oolong from DavidsTea?

Sigh. This could be — should be — sublime. Floral oolong with jasmine, two of my favourite things in all of teadom … yet somehow it’s just meh. Sure, there’s a jasmine hit and a noticeable jasmine aroma, but it seems stale. The mouthfeel is slightly creamy, nothing like a milk oolong, but it’s there. Maybe I steeped this just a tiny bit too long. Another 15-30 seconds and I’d have jasmine soap in my cup. I can’t taste anything that says oolong.

This is a competent but dull jasmine-scented tea that should be much, much better. It’s a decent way to introduce someone to jasmine teas, but I won’t bother to buy this one again. I adore jasmine tea and want to be wowed. There’s better jasmine out there to spend my hard-earned money on — the basic jasmine blossom green in bags from Stash, for example.

I have a pantry full of over a dozen beautiful jasmine teas and this one is my least favorite. No matter what I do, the flavor just doesn’t come through well. It’s a very weak, watery jasmine flavor.

Gongfu!

So I’ve steeped this Gongfu before – this session wasn’t really any different, except I think I used a marginally higher amount of tea leaf which resulted in a bit more potency in the initial steeps, and then settled into more of a sweeter jasmine note. I think Gongfu is definitely my preferred way to steep this as well, at least it feels like that’s what I’m establishing here…

Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts and feelings regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
