Organic Jasmine Silver Needle Tea from Wegmans

Style: Jasmine Silver Needle – Region: China

73 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
May. 25th, 2013

This one was surprisingly different from the pure, unscented silver needles from Wegmans. I liked it much more. Compared to other jasmine silver needles I tried in the past but did not review, this one was much more aromatic.

The dry leaf smells very strongly like wintergreen, almost suggestive of bubblegum. I fo...

Delicious but expensive. Smells so great in the tin. Floral notes (Duh - it's a jasmine!) and a a pale-greenish brew brew upon a short steep. Do not over-steep this one.
I enjoy watching the little balls unfurl as the water hits them. I have never tried this on ice - but I imagine it'd be good. Oh, I love Jasmin...

Really, Alex? I love this one - maybe I am just a noob - but I used to get this at a local coffee shop in the morning and I just LOVED it. Mild green flavor and a huge bag size. I also like the Green Tea Tropical (Which is more like straight fruit).

I love Jasmine-style teas and Ito En's is no exception. Brewed loose-leaf in a diffuser or tea ball is best served hot - not sweetener or lemon required. Grassy, floral and light bodies. Easy to drink. Harder to find outside of NYC and LA.(and of course, Japan).

Love 2 Leaves & A Bud - and the cute bags/packaging. Even better? The tea itself is pretty darned good - especially the Jasmine Petal (green based). Grassy and floral and not bitter. Easy to drink - and great hot or on ice - with or without a bit of honey or lemon. Good sippin'!

Super over-priced but the cute packaging is fun. This is one of my favorite from Tea Forte - but I am a huge Jasmine/Green fan in general. Richly scented with jasmine so it is floral and sweet smelling. Very good hot.

Feb. 26th, 2013

This is meant to be a 'high-end' jasmine pearl tea, which, to be honest, is not something that I had thought to look into until I got a free sample of it. To me, jasmine teas are lovely, but the jasmine always overpowers the tea, making them all taste roughly similar.

I found this tea to be genuinely a cut above oth...

This has to be one of my favorite teas! Its light and exquisite floral smell often has me brewing two cups, which is rare! Its flavor is smooth and subtle adding a nice mellow compliment to the aroma. I look forward to relaxing to many more cups of Jasmine Petal in the future :)

This struck me as one of the better jasmine teas I've had in a tea bag or sachet, if not the best. I'd compare it against Two Leaves and a Bud's Jasmine Petal, or Novus Tea's Jasmine Tea. I prefer it to both; it seemed more similar to Novus Tea's offering.

Slightly perfumey. Very full-bodied; somewhat astringent ...

Yet another Chinese tea from TeaVivre, of very high quality that is exactly what I'd expect for its style.

Dry leaf extremely aromatic, with an intense Jasmine aroma that is almost overwhelming. Looks like a typical silver needle, very attractive-looking, delicate silvery buds with downy white hair.

Organic Jasmine Green Tea from Novus Tea

Style: Jasmine Tea – Region: Hunan, China

pros:
(1) fancier package than other tea bags I tried which are made of paper;
(2) organic... so I guess it's healthier.
(3) the smell is good. not too strong or too weak;

cons:
(1) the taste of the first cup is a bit too strong for me. I prefer the 2nd or 3rd cup of it when it's lighter.
(2)the caffeine doesn'...

I thought this tea was smooth, light, and didn't leave a noticeable aftertaste. I enjoyed the smell of this tea, while faint it had a nice floral fragrance. This was the first Jasmine tea I've tried, and I will definitely be having more in the future!

This is the best Jasmine tea I've had from a tea bag. It is better than a lot of loose-leaf jasmine tea I've tried.

Exceptionally smooth for a jasmine. Floral without being perfumey. Base tea is vegetal and mellow like a very good pouchong / bao zhong. The base tea has a strong floral character and it's hard to ...

Dec. 4th, 2011

This is my favorite bagged jasmine tea. The green tea provides a solid base, and the jasmine adds complexity to the flavor. Still, it's not a subtle tea, and feels like what an English green tea should be: forthright.

The tea has a slight bitter aftertaste, but it is not unpleasant if the tea is steeped briefly. The...

This one was just odd. The aroma was predominately of olive, like good, strong Kalamata olives. I've had olive-like tones in tea before, and they can be pleasant, but I've never encountered a tea dominated by this aroma.

The olive lingers on the palate, leaving a salty, sour, and savory taste, much like I actually...

Oct. 10th, 2011

I was a bit scared after my terrible experience with Ronnefeldt's Japanese green tea, but this one turned out to be quite a few notches up from that one (which was undrinkable).

Average for what I'd expect from a tea bag...drinkable, and perhaps somewhat pleasant, but not terribly exciting...and lagging far behind R...

For my first cup of this tea, I used water that had just finished coming to a boil, and then I accidentally forgot about the cup for at least five minutes. It turned out very nicely, though. The tea brews to a deep golden color, and is very fragrant. The aroma is essentially similar to other jasmine teas I have had. Th...

I was pleasantly surprised by this Jasmine. Typically I find that Jasmine teas smell fantastic but brew super bitter and tasteless. Dragon Pearl Jasmine, on the other hand, was both aromatic and flavorful without being overpowering. A solid choice for Jasmine.

Oh boy, this is a super-duper good jasmine. It is tied for first place for me, as it is so different from my other favorite. It is very very flora, without being cloying. The taste is thoroughly Jasmine and I really can't say enough good about it. It will go for several short infusions and it is great fun to watch th...

This is a superb tea. It is very rich, very sweet, with a bit of a pepper kick to ground it. I am a huge fan of Yunnan and while this isn't the very best Yunnan, (that would be wasted in a blend) it is of high enough quality to carry the very good Jasmine. This is not an ethereal Jasmine, but a very solid one. I p...

I can't say enough good about this tea. It is lovely to look at, to smell and to taste. An absolutely superb jasmine, well worth every penny you spend on it. It is delicate, but gives a full mouth feel. The scent is easily the best, as is the taste and I do love Jasmine teas.

It's a little unclear from reading the commercial description how this tea is produced. The description describes the traditional process, but the ingredients list "natural flavor" rather than by using the traditional scenting method. Based on the aroma of the dry leaf, it seems like the "natural flavor" method inste...
