The Puritea Jasmine Golden Yunnan

I am a complete and utter jasmine addict so I was really excited to try this blend. The leaves were beautiful to look at, with the occasional blossom peaking through the golden brown curls. The heady scent of jasmine quickly filled the room as they steeped. I made this tea in my Breville One-Touch Tea Maker with 212 degree water for five minutes.

The peppery element of the yunnan and the floral sweetness of the jasmine perfectly compliment one another. Both aspects of this tea were able to shine through with muddying the individual flavors. It was slightly astringent but not in an unpleasant way. I actually like this combo even better than jasmine’s usual pairing with green tea. I would definitely recommend this tea.
