Ohhhh… this is so lovely!
I know that I’ve tried at least one other tea that was blended with sepalika flowers, but, I don’t recall the tea at this time. It’s been a while … and I think I may have forgotten just how lovely this “night flowering jasmine” truly is. The flavor of this Floral Green Tea Blend from De Vos Tea is delicate and sweetly floral … not at all overwhelming. It’s so delightful, it’s almost dreamy just how good it is.
I love that the flowery touch of this tea is not a strong or fake kind of flavor … it tastes light and sweet and natural. It doesn’t taste like perfume or soap. It just tastes beautiful and it is enchanting!
The green tea has a soft taste and texture to it. The texture is “almost creamy” … that is to say it doesn’t really taste or feel “buttery” or any of the other “creamy” kind of sensations … it is almost a “fluffy” kind of creaminess … the way it would taste and feel if you were to bite into a baked meringue. That is not to say it tastes like a baked egg white … but it has that light, airy, creamy kind of taste and and mouthfeel.
The green tea doesn’t taste overwhelmingly “vegetative.” There is some vegetal notes here, reminiscent of a mild vegetable with hints of sweet grass notes. It is overall a very mellow, smooth green tea taste that melds amazingly well with the soft, sultry flavor of the sepalika flowers.
A delightful floral experience … if you appreciate floral teas, you really have GOT to try this one!
