Peet's Coffee & Tea Jasmine Fancy Green Tea Review

An Excellent and Strong Jasmine Green Tea

Summary : This green tea from Peet's Coffee & Tea is an excellent jasmine green tea, boasting both a powerful fragrance and strong jasmine flavor. If you enjoy other jasmine green teas, it is a guarantee that you'll enjoy this one.

Review : Just last night I found myself in the mood for a jasmine green tea. Not wanting to mess with loose-leaf tea, I turned to a bagged tea and sampled Stash's Jasmine Blossom green tea, which must to my surprise was an excellent tea.

So, when I again found myself in the mood for a jasmine tea on yet another rainy night, I sorted through my tea collection and found the Jasmine Fancy green tea put out by Peet's Coffee & Tea. I thought it might be interesting to compare the bagged Stash Jasmine Blossom to the loose-leaf Jasmine Fancy from Peet's Coffee & Tea.

Jasmine Fancy Green Tea

Here is how Peet's Coffee & Tea explains their Jasmine Fancy Green tea on their website : "A mellow China pouchong tea naturally scented with jasmine flowers. Also available in tea bags. Jasmine is a native of the Persian Gulf area, and was brought to China sometime before the third century A.D. Jasmine-scented teas have been made for at least 800 years, with the finest produced in the province of Fujian. 'Pouchong' tea is used as the base, a style of green tea that has slight oxidation, and the resulting cup of Jasmine Fancy has an amber hue. The scenting is a natural process, involving mixing the leaves with fresh jasmine flowers so that the tea absorbs the scent. Contrary to popular belief, the better grades of jasmine tea have the least amount of petals remaining in the finished tea. The dry petals lose their scent to the tea, and removing the spent petals results in a more concentrated flavor."

This tea contains the following ingredients : jasmine green tea leaves.

The aroma of the tea straight out of the bag was wonderful. After opening the bag, I was immediately greeted with a strong jasmine fragrance - always a good sign in a scented green tea.

Once brewed, I'm happy to report that the flavor of the tea matched its wonderful aroma. Indeed, this is one of the strongest jasmine green teas I've had - and it definitely has a stronger flavor (not surprisingly) than the otherwsie excellent Stash Jasmine Blossom green tea I had just the previous night.

In short, if you love other Jasmine Green Teas, I can absolutely guarantee that you'll love this tea. The aroma is strong, and the flavor is powerful. And provided you brew the tea properly, the tea is also very smooth and lacks even a hint of bitterness. Plus, as a side bonus, the aftertaste of the tea is pleasant and just lingers on and on and on.

Recommendation : Yes. This tea from Peet's Coffee & Tea is a strong jasmine green tea. The aroma is wonderful, the flavor powerful, and the aftertaste lingers on the tongue for a long period of time. The tea also is very smooth and lacks any bitterness, too. If you enjoy jasmine or other scented green teas, definitely give this tea a try.
