Review of Jasmine Tea Bags

8 of 105 of 53 of 580 of 100

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 finish. The base tea seems to have a very floral character, and it's hard to tell where the tea ends and the jasmine scenting begins--which in my opinion, is a hallmark of a high-quality, traditionally-scented tea.

Flavor is sweet...there's not much bitterness, and only a faint sourness that seems to serve to make this tea have a bit more depth.

This stuff is pricey; I almost marked it as "overpriced", and it's certainly not a deal. I still don't know why people would buy 15 sachets for $8, but if you're comparing it along other brands like Two Leaves and a Bud or Mighty Leaf, I'd recommend this one any day. Still, I prefer Rishi's loose-leaf offerings. This same tea is available from Rishi, a quarter pound for $13...enough to brew 40-50 cups, easily.
