I've honestly never had white jasmine till I met this these lovely silk velvety white leaves. Not overpowering, the leafs had a beautiful fragrant jasmine smell, as anticipated. Jasmine flowers are scattered around the tea to dry for several nights and fresh flowers are replaced daily.
I brewed this tea for 2 minutes using about 1 teaspoon of leaves in 8 ounces of water heated to 175 degrees. A pale gold cup was revealed and smelt like a botanical garden. I wish it was summer so I could actually drink this tea amongst the flowers.
The jasmine was very prominent in the first cup, very silky smooth with hints of cinnamon and linen but definitely not over powering. Hints of grass and herbs began to emerge as I continued drinking and smelling. I allowed the leaves to float in my cup freely and blew them to the edge before drinking. As this tea cooled a hint of lemon appeared.
I was able to brew this tea three times, and I'm sure a fourth would be possible too. Each cup had a unique characteristic of it's own. This tea is refreshing and cool, it would make a nice cold cup on a hot summer day.
If you're looking for a jasmine tea that's not overpowering whose leaves are long lasting, brew after brew I would suggest Verdant's Yunnan White Jasmine. Though a bit pricey- it's worth it!
