goldenmoonvanillajasmine.jpgThe phrase "vanilla jasmine" sounds so very natural. The sound of those two flavours together seems like an obvious combination. Vanilla adds a fantastic creaminess to almost every flavour, and jasmine has such a complex taste that lends itself to interesting pairings. The two together sounds so easy and simple, yet genius.

The dry leaves smell a bit weak, but the jasmine scent comes out in the steeping. Unfortunately, while the idea sounds great, this pairing does not really seem to work out in reality. The jasmine and vanilla do not really blend - they seem to fight each other throughout the entire cup of tea. I get the impression that these two flavours just don't blend well in general, and it isn't really the fault of Golden Moon and their choice of balance.

I am also not big on the tea Golden Moon chose to use as the base. For some reason it just tastes rather astringent and acidic. The green tea doesn't bring this blend down a great deal, but it detracts somewhat. I'm not really a coffee drinker, and the bold, bitter taste reminded me of a weak cup of coffee. Not exactly a flavour I strive for, and one that grew bolder with every sip, overpowering the vanilla and jasmine by the end.

My husband said he would rate this tea around 6-7 and enjoyed it a great deal more than I did, so it's safe to assume my experience does not speak for everyone's, and if the idea of this tea appeals, you should still try it out. Golden Moon has inexpensive samples available on their website, so you have little to lose.
