From Yunnan Sourcing

This is a very nice blend of Fuding “Yin Hao” (Silver Hairs) Green Tea and Fujian-grown jasmine flowers. The tea was harvested in Late-April and the Flowers in Late-May.

The brewed tea is golden in color with a thick tea soup! The aroma of jasmine is in the forefront, but the vegetal fresh grass and fruit aroma of the Yin Hao green tea is also present and complements the jasmine aroma perfectly.

The taste of the tea itself is sweet, jasmine and umami with a thick honey-like mouth-feeling. An excellent jasmine green tea that can be steep 4 to 6 times gong fu style. Also brews well western style!

Growing region: Fuding in Fujian province of China

I haven’t had a jasmine tea in a while so I went fishing around in the green tea box and this was the first one I pulled out. It’s probably my least favorite from Yunnan Sourcing’s jasmine lovers sampler but it’s not a bad tea at all (the bi luo chun was my fave, followed closely by both of the jasmine pearls). I’m drinking the spring 2019 harvest.

Being lazy tonight so it’s just a good sized pinch of tea in the tiny gaiwan. I’m not entirely sure where my scale is (downstairs with the big tea tray/table maybe?) and it’s been long enough since I’ve had this tea that I don’t remember what tea to water ratio I thought worked best for it anyway. Kettle’s set to 175°. Going to try not to spend the whole night drinking tea because I need to be up early (for me) to spend the day helping my grandfather with stuff. I am not a morning person. At all.

Dry tea smells strongly of jasmine and not much else. Brewed tea also smells heavily of jasmine. Tastes like jasmine. Lots and lots of jasmine. I’m not sure I can taste the tea much at all, just jasmine. It’s not as sweet as YS’s jasmine bi luo chun but it’s got some jasminey sweetness and it’s smooth. While not my favorite jasmine tea, I can happily drink this one all day long when in the mood for jasmine. The jasmine definitely isn’t subtle but I like my floral teas pretty flowery.
