From Red Blossom Tea Company

Our mid-range Jasmine scented white tea. Large white tea buds gathered from the tea gardens of Fujian, then rolled into the shape of Phoenix Eyes. The teas are then finished in the same manner as our Organic and Supreme Dragon Pearl Jasmine teas: stored until summer, then scented over the course of several evenings with summer Jasmine blossoms.

The larger leaf buds steeps a tea that is rich and creamy – reminiscent of jasmine scented buttercream frosting, albeit a lot lower in calories.

Another nice jasmine scented tea from Red Blossom. I bought this and their Supreme as I ran out of their Organic and it’s now out of stock.

This is a very jasminey tea. Round mouth feel, jasmine finish in the back of the nose that lingers.

I’m not getting any of the “buttercream” taste to it. But maybe I will after it cools a bit, we’ll see. For now it’s just a nice, strong, jasmine white.

The last white tea in my cupboard now has been tasted and written about!

Whew. Tomorrow I should complete the oolong samples. After that, I’m not sure what will be next to finish. I think I may have more pu erh samples than pu erhs in the cupboard, so perhaps it will be cupboard pu erhs next.

In any case, this is an excellent note to end on. I love the shape of the little “eyes” and they smell positively juicy with jasmine in the packet.

I steeped a bit hotter and longer than usual after reading some of the notes here. That gave me a golden yellow, clear tea, that smells wonderfully of jasmine.

While I’m not getting the buttercream frosting reference at all (the tea isn’t particularly sweet other than the standard jasmine floral sweetness) and the mouthfeel isn’t creamier than usual, it’s a really delicious jasmine that meets all of my “this is good jasmine” criteria. Because it’s a white tea, I don’t really taste any tea — just the jasmine.

But that’s not a bad thing.

I’ve served this tea to a lot of people by now and everybody asks for it again. The flavor changes quite a bit with temperature and time so you need to find your own sweet spot. I like it a bit stronger so I use a longer time then Red Blossom recommends.
