Tea Description:

From the site:  I finally have this tea back!! I sold out over Christmas. Whenever I got some more it was only a few packages at a time and they sold before I had time to post them. So get this while you can! This flavored tea is a wonderful addition to any tea connoisseurs collection.

This tea is made of Jasmine & Roses which gives this loose leaf Green Tea a memorable fragrance and flavor. The best of both worlds.

Taster’s Review:

I have been addicted to floral teas this summer.  To the point where I was craving them and digging thru my stash looking for  any teas with rose petals or jasmine flowers.  I will admit.  I may have had a problem.

This tea actually ranks up there with the best floral teas I’ve tried so far.  I love it!

Brewed this tea up with my Breville One Touch this morning for my travel companion for my way to work on the medium green tea setting. The packaging says to steep this for up to 5 minutes.  I would be hesitant to steep this tea that long.  I would start with 3 minutes on the first infusion to play it safe.

First sip in- I was insanely impressed.  This version of a jasmine green tea not only gives you the best of the jasmine green tea world but with the addition of the rose petals there is an added sweetness.  There are also notes of plums in each sip giving this floral tea a bit more depth than what I’ve had in the past.  The green tea is lovely and is quite smooth and adds a touch of buttery creaminess to the tea. What a gorgeous tea! I’m very happy with how this tea turned out.

To be honest-I am hooked! I am sitting here at happy that I did bring the rest of the tea I have with me to work so I can make up another cuppa.  I’m excited to try this tea as an iced tea and as a cold brew.  I think I have enough to try this tea a few different ways.

This tea is truly a memorable one and will be on my radar to purchase more once I sipdown more teas.

This will be a sipdown by the end of the day.  Woot! Woot! #26!

Taster’s Review:

This tea is one of the more popular blends according to Kathy @Three Teas.  I couldn’t wait to try it.  I do love my green teas and even tho Earl Grey flavoring sometimes is overwhelming to me, I was excited to try this one.

I prepped this one up per the instructions on the package- 2 tsps-185F-3 minutes.  The result was a very pleasant yellowish green liquid in my teacup.  The fragrance emitting from the cup was very bergamot oil like.  Almost overwhelmingly so.

Took my first sip and yes this is definitely a tea for the Earl Grey fans out there.  They bergamot is alive and well in this tea.  The green tea creates a very nice smooth buttery base (but very subtle) and the bergamot oil flavor is quite strong.

Unfortunately the bergamot was just too strong for me.  I think if there was some straight orange flavoring added in or maybe even some vanilla bean, this tea would take on a completely different profile making it pop.  I just picked up some vanilla bean so I might try that later.

Regardless, I’m really enjoying this green tea base.  I almost wish I could try that by itself without the bergamot oil.  This may just be one of those teas that need a little help to boost the flavor or maybe I should find it a new home.  I’m still glad I was able to try it!
