goldenmoonvanillajasmine.jpg"The critical test for any blended tea is how the flavors meld. Our Vanilla Jasmine Tea is a very nice blend due to the low, full notes in the green tea and vanilla beans and the higher notes of the green tea and jasmine. Our Vanilla Jasmine is excellent hot or iced." ---Golden Moon website.

First of all, this smells incredible. The aroma coming from my sample is a strong vanilla bean with a soft jasmine scent that picks up towards the end. The ingredients include: black tea, fine jasmine tea with petals, vanilla extract and pieces. This is total aromatherapy---very relaxing and peaceful. Something you wanna grab after you've had one of those days and need something to take you away. Makes me wish for a big jacuzzi tub and some candles.

I brewed this like a green tea (water steaming and starting to have bubbles) and steeped for 3 minutes. Once steeped the jasmine has a slightly stronger aroma, but is not dominating. The vanilla is the stronger taste here. This is good with or without sugar, but I liked it best with about a half tsp of rock cane sugar. I would say taste is vanilla bean with jasmine aftertaste. I'm not the biggest floral tea person, but this is nicely balanced. The tea base works really well with this too. Also Golden Moon says this good for multiple infusions. As expected, it leaves a decent tasting tea with the second infusion, but don't expect any vanilla jasmine flavor to be lingering in your cup. I can imagine this would make a great iced tea.

I like this pretty well and would recommend it to anyone who was considering it. I have some more Golden Moon samples to taste and this makes me look forward to them even more--especially their coconut pouchong! I have some of Adagio's and plan to taste them side-by-side!
