Whenever I’m feeling a little under the weather with allergies, a cup of hot tea, without the more exotic flavours that I usually like, always brings comfort. And this here is T2 China Jasmine.
Infusing 1 tea bag in 200 ml of water at 80°C for 2 minutes yields a translucent yellow liquor with a delicate jasmine scent. On tasting a slight astringency comes through ahead of the pleasant floral jasmine notes in the body that develop with buttery Chinese green tea notes towards the finish before returning to a gentle astringent finish. The mellow flavour and fragrance of this tea make it perfect for drinking every day.
This box of T2 China Jasmine contained 25 bags or 50 g. The tea originated in China and was gifted by relatives in 2013.
