Where to Buy: Little Red Cup Tea Co.
Jasmine Green Tea comes in many styles – loose leaf, rolled into small balls, even hand-bound into large balls that open into a sort of tea-flower. We offer a fine, loose-leaf Jasmine Green Tea, one that produces a brew of a lovely yellow hue with a powerful jasmine scent. For us, Jasmine Green Tea is an all-day treat.

I’ve had this tea for a little while now, having tried the other two teas that I acquired from Little Red Cup Tea Co., but hanging on to this one … why? I don’t know. Mostly I think because it was put in a place that I don’t normally go looking for tea, so it was sort of forgotten until I came across it the other day.
I think another reason I held off on trying this Jasmine Green tea is that I’m rather picky when it comes to Jasmine Tea. Yes, I love jasmine tea, and there are many jasmine teas out there that I’ve quite enjoyed. But, there are some jasmine teas that are just … not good. And given my impression of this company’s Bai Mu Dan, which was good, but not great, I was just a wee bit worried that my experience with the Jasmine tea might be equal to … or possibly worse than that experience. Interestingly enough, though, of the three teas that I’ve tried from this company (the other tea was this Keemun), this one has been the best!
The overall cup is actually quite pleasant, with a green tea base that is smooth and even a little bit creamy, with lovely notes of jasmine. The aroma – while soft – is quite intoxicating.
I very much enjoyed this jasmine. It reminds me of the jasmine teas that I’ve had at fine Chinese restaurants. The jasmine is not sharp or bitter, and the mouthfeel is soft and silky. And I love that this is a Fair Trade Certified, Organic tea. Overall, this tea makes for a truly lovely jasmine tea experience.
