China Jasmine Green Tea from Foojoy

Style: Jasmine Tea – Region: China

57 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 3rd, 2010

Weak Jasmine aroma, even relative to other teabag Jasmine teas. Flavor is sweet, gentle, with almost no bitterness and with only a hint of sourness. Aroma is honeylike, like a pouchong, but weak and not terribly interesting.

This tea scalds very easily if brewed with water that is too hot. Be sure to use water we...

Dragon Pearl Jasmine from Harney and Sons

Style: Jasmine Pearls – Region: Fujian, China

63 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Nov. 28th, 2009

Complex aroma, less floral than most Jasmines and than I had expected. I liked this tea but I'm not sure I perceived it the same way it is described...it tasted a little bit peppery to me...the base tea reminded me somewhat of a white peony and somewhat of a pouchong. This tea is gentle if you brew it briefly but can...

Jasmine Green Tea from Bigelow Tea

Style: Jasmine Tea – Region: ?????

50 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 18th, 2009

The floral scent is much weaker than in some Jasmines but it's pleasant; this is a very smooth tea, without the bitterness or astringency that plagues many of the cheaper teabag Jasmines. My only complaint is that I wish the aroma were overall stronger, both of the tea and the Jasmine.

Asian Jasmine 100% White Tea from Republic of Tea

Style: Jasmine Tea – Region: Fujian, China

47 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 5th, 2009

This is a very simple tea...the aroma is un-jasmine-like...more fruity. The flavor is weak but very smooth and there is some body to this tea. Pleasant but unremarkable. Reasonably priced.

Picture of Organic Spring Jasmine

Organic Spring Jasmine from Mighty Leaf Tea

Style: Jasmine Tea – Region: China

43 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 1/5

An average Jasmine green tea. Drinkable, but very run-of-the-mill and somewhat generic tasting.

The price-tag is astronomical. I recommend avoiding this one; you can buy better Jasmine teas from any number of sources, even in teabags. Also, I think Mighty Leaf's other offerings are much better.

Jasmine Petal from Two Leaves and a Bud

Style: Jasmine Tea – Region: China

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 2nd, 2009

Mellow and much less floral than most Jasmines; the tea dominates the aroma. There is little bitterness, almost no astringency, and and a hint of sweetness.

This tea holds up very well to multiple infusions: the second cup was just as flavorful as the first, and a third was still good. There's almost no Jasmine le...

Jasmine Yin Hao from Rishi Tea

Style: Yin Hao Jasmine – Region: Hubei, China

83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Sep. 2nd, 2009

This tea is very aromatic, and is both richer and less perfumey than some Jasmine teas. The flavor is mellow and smooth, there is very little bitterness and no astringency.

I have had good results with a shorter infusion time than recommended, and I think this tea is good for multiple infusions. You can also get a...
