I was given a bag of this as a holiday present from a professor that I was a TA for. What a thoughtful woman! She really knows my tastes. :)

One thing to be careful about with this tea is not to overdo it—it calls for one tablespoon per 16 oz, and if you put too much leaf in you will be tasting jasmine for the rest of the week.

Unfortunately, that’s really all that you taste anyway. Jasmine with undertones of jasmine and just a hint of jasmine. The jasmine completely dominates the sencha. I suppose I can’t really fault the tea for this—it’s sort of what it promises. But it would have been nice if they were balanced a bit better.

If you’re a jasmine fan, go ahead and give it a try. Just remember, a little bit goes a long way!

I’m a tea omnivore if there ever was one. I’ll wax poetic about the finest sencha loose leaf but have no problem slurping up a few bags of Celestial Seasonings in between them. Everyone deserves quality from time to time, but every well-traveled road has a bit of dust (and fannings) along the way. :)
