This has such a fantastic jasmine flavor. It is very smooth, slightly grassy, and with a beautiful, delicate floral nature. A gentle sweetness to it and there is a slight sharp tone just at the finish that sort of lingers into the aftertaste, but it is not off-putting. It isn’t what I would classify as bitter; merely a sharp, grassy note. The jasmine develops and gets a little stronger by mid-cup, almost to the point of being soapy… but not quite. Some of those who are sensitive to that perfume-y tendency of jasmine might not find this to be their cup of tea, but it is a great jasmine for jasmine lovers!
Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me this tea.
