This is a delicious tea. The green had a nice flavor that was not at all bitter. The jasmine added a nice aroma and flavor to this green without being overpowering. Sometimes I find Jasmine teas to have a perfume-like taste and that was not the case with this tea. Green teas are one of the few types that I tend to drink unsweetened but I’ll add a hint of sweet if I find it to be at all bitter. This tea isn’t bitter at all and is wonderful to enjoy just as it is. Bonus, this tea is fair trade and organic!

So, with all of these great things to say, you may wonder why I’m not giving it a higher rating. The only thing that would make me give this tea a better rating is if inside the bag the pieces of tea leaves were larger. I often cut open the bags of teas that we review and inside I did find a little “dust” (tiny fragments of tea). For me to give a tea a 5 I like to find that the bits of tea are large enough to be steeped in an infuser with a tightly woven strainer or small openings.

Temperature: @200 (below boiling)
Steeped: 2.5 minutes
Served: Nothing added

We’ve got another certified organic and fair trade one for you!  I just love how easy it is to find teas that are both organic AND fair trade!  This time it is Numi Jasmine Green.  The aroma of this tea will instantly draw you in.  The jasmine scent is so delicate  and wonderful that it makes you want to keep steeping this tea all day just to keep the smell of it in the air.

The green tea flavor is strong – and I only steeped it for 2 minutes!  The big green tea flavor is well balance by the light jasmine.  This is an easy to drink flavorful tea that is great for drinking by itself or with food.  A perfect springtime treat.  Just be careful not to oversteep – it could easily become bitter.  For this one I recommend keeping a close eye on the clock or setting yourself a timer.  If careful with steeping you are left with a tasty cuppa!
