Since ancient times freshly brewed tea pot was considered a part of luxury living. Today, “Tea of Life®” offer you the same luxury in its Green tea with Jasmine & Orange flavors.
Before opening the package and sampling this Green Tea Jasmine Orange from Tea of Life, I had my reservations. One of the only teas that I do happen to enjoy from the seemingly most popular *grocery* store brand (you know which one I’m talking about, don’t you?) is a green tea jasmine orange tea, so, I hoped that I’d have a similar experience with this tea.
However, I was worried because it appears (by what I’m reading on the packaging) that this is a jasmine flavored tea rather than a jasmine scented tea, and I don’t usually have positive experiences with jasmine flavored teas. (Although I’m over the moon for jasmine teas that have been properly scented rather than flavored with oils.)
But I’m actually quite satisfied with this tea. The flavors are well balanced with the tea – I taste tea and jasmine and orange in every sip. The jasmine doesn’t taste funky or off. It tastes light and sweet. The orange adds a sunny note to the cup and that’s something that’s very welcome on a gray day like today. (It’s cold and drizzly!)
The green tea has a pleasant grassy note to it – but it isn’t a bitter grass taste. It’s light and invigorating and sweet. The orange is also sweet, but there is just a hint of tartness to the citrus note that really gives the cup some ZING.
A nice tea to relax to on a cold winter day … and it would also be a very refreshing iced tea to cool off with when the weather gets warm.
