This ancient Chinese jasmine tea is sure to make your mouth water. With a light flavor and an amazing floral scent, this tea will melt all of your worries away.
OK, most of the tea descriptions that are written by the tea company, I take with a grain of salt. Of course they’re going to sing the praises of the tea, right?
But, in this case, I have to completely agree with the above product description from East Pacific Tea Company. This tea DOES make my mouth water, and it also melts the worries and stress of the day away! This is one of the best jasmine teas I’ve ever tasted!
As some of you may be aware, I am incredibly fond of jasmine teas. For the longest time, my favorite (my precious!) were jasmine pearls. Nothing even came close for me. But, since that time, I’ve discovered jasmine white teas, and I like jasmine with white tea better than green. Now, don’t get me wrong, I still have a place in my heart for my precious jasmine pearls. But, brand me with the scarlet letter if you must, my heart belongs to two – my pearls and jasmine white teas.
The delicate nature of the white tea has a way of bringing out the softer side of jasmine. This tea is not sharp or perfume-y nor does it leave any unpleasant taste in the finish. Instead, it is soft, sweet, and somewhat dream-inducing! As I sip, I can feel my cares get lifted away as I feel my mind soar above the clouds!
The poetic qualities of this tea aside, I suppose I needn’t say it but I shall: of all the jasmine white teas that I’ve tasted, this one is my favorite. The white tea is sweet with faint grassy notes. No bitterness, no astringency. Just soft, sweet, and delicious.
The jasmine is also soft and sweet with a distinct floral note but without the sharp attitude that sometimes comes along with a jasmine tea. It feels soft and smooth as it glides over the palate.
This is jasmine tea at it’s finest. I highly recommend it to all jasmine enthusiasts out there, but be warned, it’s addicting!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
