Taster’s Review:

I love a good Jasmine Tea … and this Organic Jasmine Pearl Scented Green Tea from Teahouse Kuan Yin is definitely a good Jasmine Tea!

First of all – I LOVE that it’s organic!  I love that it’s a scented Jasmine.  A few days ago, I had a dreadful encounter with a Jasmine tea that was not scented but instead flavored … and there is a difference!  I know I’ve talked about the difference here on this blog before, but for those of you who haven’t read my rant about the difference:  basically, a scented jasmine is a tea that has been properly jasmine-ified (yes, it’s a word, I just made it up) … that is to say, the jasmine scent/flavor was achieved by layering the tea leaves with fresh jasmine blossoms, allowing their heady essence to absorb into the leaves naturally.  A flavored jasmine, on the other hand, is a tea that has been flavored/scented with a jasmine oil.  The result of this process creates a tea that tastes more like perfume than like tea.  And it’s just plain nasty.

But this Organic Jasmine Pearl Scented Green Tea from Teahouse Kuan Tin was NOT flavored … it was scented!  The leaves were layered with the jasmine flowers!  That’s the way to do it!  The result is a tea that is pleasantly flavored with the natural essence of jasmine and not a perfume-y substitute.  It is beautifully floral.

The green tea tastes lightly vegetative, and melds beautifully with the floral notes.  A lovely, contemplative cup.  If you like a good jasmine tea … this is one you should try.
