Taster’s Review:

I adore jasmine tea.  There is just something so amazing about the flavor of the jasmine flower.  It is indescribably delightful.   So, I guess it goes without saying that I was very excited to try this jasmine green tea from LeafSpa.

Upon opening the tin, I double checked the label to make sure it was the jasmine tea that I was opening.  Normally, when I open a package of jasmine, the fragrance is very strong.  But this was not the case with this tin of tea.  There was only a very faint jasmine scent.  I was worried, to be honest.  I worried that this tea would fail to deliver my beloved jasmine flavor.

How wrong I was.  Upon brewing, the fragrance intensified.  The light green liquor still smelled rather soft in comparison to other jasmine teas that I’ve had in the past, but it was a very pleasant delicate aroma.  It brought a smile to my lips.   Ah – jasmine!

The flavor is quite different from any jasmine tea I’ve tasted recently.  In fact, I can’t recall a jasmine green tea quite like this one.  The flavor is subtle.  The jasmine flower does not overpower the palate; instead it gently washes over it.  This is no ordinary jasmine; it is a softer, gentler, calmer jasmine.  What a pleasant surprise.

The green tea brings a vegetative quality to the cup – not strong – rather, it is in perfect balance with the jasmine:  soft and fresh.

I really enjoyed this deliciously different jasmine tea from LeafSpa.  It is one that would be quite good served iced too, because although it offers a more delicate flavor, that flavor does not mute upon cooling.  It is thirst-quenching and restorative – just right for summertime sipping!
