New tea! This one sort of snuck online last week without much fanfare, with that “mini capsule” of unflavoured teas I talked about in my Golden Dragon Pu’erh note…

I feel conflicted about this tea on a purely personal level because I really think it’s very well balanced – which is really tricky when you’re working with so many dominant flavours – but all the flavours are ones I typically don’t love. The blend is basically green tea, ginger, jasmine, and straight matcha – with zero flavouring. Not really favourites of mine. So it’s always interesting having one foot in the camp of “wow, the craft behind this is exceptional” and another in the camp of “but I don’t like it”.

So I guess I would probably rank the flavours, in terms of presence, as…

- Ginger
- Jasmine
- Green Tea
- Matcha

The blend is overall very flavourful which is very impressive given the lack of flavouring – I think you absolutely wouldn’t realize its a flavour free blend without it being pointed out; it’s not flat at all. The ginger is more of a hot and earthy ginger to me, and it’s only slightly stronger than the jasmine, which is conveyed through the jasmine scented green tea instead of a jasmine oil or flavouring. I wouldn’t expect these two flavours to work together, but they do seem to offset each other very nicely. The ginger draws out sweetness from the jasmine while the floral notes soften some of the earthier qualities. Even though it’s quite flavour forward, I’d call it light to medium bodied.

The matcha is mild – and that makes sense to me because this blend uses compressed matcha instead of a dusting of matcha. It infuses into the cup, but in a more controlled way, and it helps preserve the aesthetic of the blend also.

I’ve not seen reviews on this yet (not just on Steepster but on other platforms too), but I would be soooo fascinated to see what someone who actually does like ginger or jasmine green tea would think of the blend. I don’t really feel like I’m in the position to be as objective about it as I want to be…

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.

Ginger and jasmine sounds like a combative combination to me!
