A silver needle white tea blended with plenty of flower petals. This one has a lovely jasmine scent, both in dry form and after brewing. There’s also the slightest hint of rose. In terms of flavor, this is a superbly light and smooth jasmine tea, with a bit of fruit flavor contributing to what I suppose is the “tropical” feel. The white tea base is of good quality and has a hay-like note, evoking a sunlit sort of feeling.

A good jasmine tea with a light touch always reminds me of summer in China, and this one was nice to have on a warm afternoon. To be honest, I’m not sure how well the tropical concept of the blend succeeded here—I’m not getting much from the lemongrass, or other additions. But on sheer enjoyability this is getting a high rating anyway. Thanks beelicious!

I grew up in a tea-loving family, and tea has always been a part of daily life. I’m still astounded by the amount of tea and teaware back home every time I visit! While I’m most familiar with straight Chinese teas, I’m growing to explore and appreciate other types of tea, including blended and flavored ones. A good blend can reflect the thought and creativity that was put into making it, instead of being too sweet or busy in a way that gives the “genre” a bad rap.

-most black teas (even lapsang)
-most oolongs, especially Fujian teas, baozhong and dancong
-straight white teas

Variable (some are great, some not so):
-most green teas
-tie guan yin
-flavored white teas

90-100: definite repurchase if possible, recommended
80-90: enjoyed, possible repurchase
70-80: fair to good
60-70: fair with some shortcomings
50-60: there’s still a chance I’d take this if it were free
under 50: absolutely not
