Drink Me: David’s Tea, Silk Dragon Jasmine

I admit I’ve always had a fondness for jasmine green teas. I don’t know if it stems from my love of Chinese food with my family, but add a little jasmine and I’m pouring myself a cup.  So when I was placing an order with David’s Tea, I decided to try their Silk Dragon Jasmine.

From the website, the blend contains organic Chinese green tea from Jianxi Province that is naturally scented with jasmine flowers.

It is available in the following sizes: 50g for $7.50, 100g + free tin for $15, 250g + free tin for $37.50 and 500g + free tin for $75.

When I first opened this tea all I smelled was the heady scent of the jasmine blooms. I generally don’t like flowery teas, but there is something about jasmine that I find very soothing.  Once brewed I didn’t get as much of the jasmine scent.  The tea once brewed lost most of the jasmine smell, which was replaced by a more earthy green tea smell.  I enjoyed the tea, but in this case I have to say that the first jasmine aroma might have been even more enticing than the taste. I’m going to have to sample this one again to decide if it makes the “re-order” list, but I’m glad I tried it.
