My Cuppa: Another round of jasmine green tea!

Another tea from my Christmas gift, was a sample of Jasmine Green Tea. I had reviewed a jasmine green tea previously a couple of years back, and it was actually a pretty good cuppa. Will this one be just as good?

The contents of the package were just amazing to look at. Specks of dark green tea with large particles of cream coloured jasmine flowers. Oh and the aroma! It was so strong of jasmine, it penetrated through the plastic wrap packaging. Not sure if that's a good sign, but, I really liked it so far.

A pretty pile!

The liquor of the infused tea leaves was a deep yellow colour. It smelled a bit spicy but the aroma of jasmine was definitely there. This is where all of the positive aspects of the tea ended for me. The taste was just not there. It was bland and lacked body. This was rather surprising considering the strong aroma and deep colour of the liquor. It wasn’t a terrible cup. It just wasn’t very flavourful. Too bad.

Looks can be deceiving!

All I can say is, never judge a tea by its appearance. What you see is not always what you’ll get. The tea may be unattractive, but the liquor could be amazing. Or the tea may be attractive, but the liquor could be an unsatisfying experience.
