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.
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!
