From Numi Organic Tea

Jasmine tea is the oldest known scented tea, and ours begins its life in the gardens of Hunan Province. The rich soil and fluctuations in daily temperature yield a fragrant leaf which is further scented with delicate white Jasmine blossoms. During summer, these are gathered daily by the banks of the Min River and repeatedly mated each night with the prepared tea, naturally embracing all of the flowers’ scent. When brewed, this smooth, organic green tea has layers of subtle fragrance and hints of moonlight. It is a most romantic tea, and, like a bowl of fresh picked flowers, will bring the joy of summer to your every sip.

Sipdown no. 82 of the year 2014. Two sipdowns today and neither were samples. Yay!

If I needed an easily portable jasmine green with a Chinese green tea base, I might consider buying this again. I am, however, slowly perfecting the balancing act of steeping loose leaf at work which is where I find myself in the most difficult conditions. Travel isn’t hard compared to work, though of course I don’t do any traveling that is too rustic.

Because I don’t really have the need of a bagged jasmine green I suspect I won’t buy this again. But I’m nostalgic about the sipdown because this was from my original “getting into tea” purchase and it’s tasty enough. More sipdowns of the original group on the horizon, which can only be a good thing…

It’s been forever since I have had a cup of this and I did have one earlier today but my water wasn’t hot enough so I won’t rate it yet. It’s fairly good for a bagged green.

I am up in Chicago this weekend visiting a good buddy of mine. She is into tea too, and actually worked at a David’s store as a seasonal worker last winter. So I brought her a bunch of stuff from my tea stash and I’m raiding her stash for breakfast :)

This tea did not impress me that much, heh. My fault for selecting a bagged tea :)

after the disappointing floral taste in the “oasis” green tea floral blend, this conventional tea bag looking tea has a nice kick of jasmine. good thing i do love jasmine tea although i was a bit disappointed with the overpowering of the more earthy flavors of the green tea…

all in all though a nice afternoon booster.

Lots of jasmine, not much green. I wish I knew why I don’t really like jasmine, it smells so nice. Must be because it tends to be kind of pushy and crowd out whatever else is in the tea blend. Definitely the case here.

As others have noted, these teabags smell amazing – the aroma’s very strong on the jasmine, but it’s pleasingly natural. The flavor’s not quite as strong. However, the jasmine is still prominent (a good thing, in my opinion). And again, it’s quite natural – there are no soapy or perfume-y notes here, thankfully.

The green base is smooth and neutral. There’s no bitterness or astringency, and it’s not at all vegetal or grassy. There’s nothing distinctive about it, but it serves its purpose just fine.

This is a very good option for a bagged (and affordable) jasmine green and a solid option for a jasmine green in general. It’s not the best I’ve had, but, as an unabashed jasmine lover, I’m finding it quite enjoyable.

I didn’t think I liked jasmine-scented teas, but this definitely changed my mind! The scent of the dry bag is heavenly, as is the aroma when steeped. The taste is a little bitter/astringent and while it’s only a slight jasmine taste, it lingers for quite a while. I’m glad I tried this. :)

A rich earthy green tea with highlights of amazing Jasmine Flowers. A great tea for breakfast to get your day off to a kickstart.

I forgot how much I thoroughly adore this tea. It’s fragrant right in the bag (and fragrant for a bagged tea, period), and has a light hand with the tea base. I can hold a mug and just smell it; almost as good as drinking it.

It’s honestly far more jasmine than green tea… the green tea flavor is almost nonexistent. So if you’re looking for a good blend of the two flavors, or a stronger tea, this probably won’t do it for you. It’s a hardcore floral, and not much else.

Steeping this tea too long definitely makes it bitter. I prefer my tea strong, but for this one you really don’t want to go past 4 minutes or the flavor will be off.
