Taster’s Review:

This is a delightful jasmine tea – the flavor is so light and sweet. The jasmine essence here is one of the more delicate jasmines I’ve encountered.  It doesn’t have a heavy flavor nor does it taste perfume-y or soapy.  It is sweet and gentle.

In fact, gentle is the word I would use to describe this tea overall.  The green tea does not possess a strong, grassy profile.  It is fresh and soft with no bitterness and very little astringency – in fact, I only notice the astringency when I am actually focusing on finding it.  Otherwise, the delivery is smooth from start to finish, with a light sweetness in the aftertaste.

This tea has a very light, crisp demeanor.  There are vague hints of vegetation, but like the astringency that I mentioned previously, it is really only noticeable when I am focusing to find that vegetal taste.

This is a lovely tea, ideal for someone who has had jasmine teas in the past that were too overbearing or perfume-ish.  This tea can offer a taste of the softer side of jasmine.
