Taster’s Review:

I’ve had a few questionable jasmine teas lately.  By questionable, I mean jasmine teas that were flavored with jasmine oil instead of scented with jasmine blossoms.  When a tea is flavored with jasmine oil, the result is usually not good.  I’ve tasted a few flavored jasmine teas that turned out alright but for the most part, they’re just far too perfume-y for my liking.

Fortunately, this Jasmine Mist Green Tea from Sloane Tea Company was not flavored with jasmine oil.  Instead, it was scented with jasmine blossoms.  This is the best way to impart jasmine essence onto the tea leaf!

The dry leaf smells like jasmine and it’s a pleasantly strong fragrance.  Not too overwhelming.  I also noticed that there were no jasmine petals in the blend.  This is a sign of a good quality jasmine tea!  The aroma of the brewed tea is a gentle jasmine note with notes of fresh, light green tea.

And that’s what I’m tasting too.  The jasmine note is distinct without tasting of perfume or soap.  It tastes like beautiful, exotic jasmine!  It doesn’t taste like perfume oil that’s been poured over tea leaves and then brewed into a liquid that’s much more suited for bathing than it is for drinking.

The green tea is a sweet, delicately grassy taste.  It’s soft and buttery and complements the lightly sweet, exquisite flavor of jasmine.

In other words, this is the good stuff, folks!  I’m happy that Amoda Tea chose to include this in this month’s box – if for no other reason than to remind me what a good jasmine tea is supposed to taste like!

Thank you, Amoda!

Co-Founder/Co-Creator of SororiTea Sisters, Mad Tea Artist at 52Teas
Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of "Gramma" and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

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!
