Taster’s Review:

I think that August’s Selection Club box from Simple Loose Leaf is my favorite box yet!  Take a look at the selections that came with this box:  Lady Earl Grey (I mean … hey, if you’ve read very many of my reviews at all, you know that I’m all about the bergamot, right?), Blueberry White (I absolutely LOVED this and it’s phenomenal served iced!), Milk Oolong (Um … YUM!) and even the honeybush was really nice.  And now, I’m drinking Jasmine!  Yep, I love August’s box!

And I’m loving this Jasmine Green tea.  I steeped it in my gaiwan, starting with a 15 second rinse, and then I steeped the leaves for 45 seconds using 180°F water, and then I strained the liquid into my special Jasmine Yi Xing Mug.  I steeped the leaves four more times, adding 15 seconds onto each subsequent infusion, until my mug was full with yummy Jasmine goodness.

The flavor is sweet and delicate.  The jasmine notes are not aggressive, they are soft and exotic and sweetly floral.  These notes marry beautifully with the lush, lightly vegetative taste of the Chinese green tea.

The tea has a pleasant mouthfeel.  It’s smooth throughout the sip and dry toward the finish.  The aftertaste is sweet and lightly floral.  A really enjoyable Jasmine tea.
