At first I thought it would be a little overpowering with how strong it smelt but it's wonderful. Especially good when you're full of a cold, a good robust taste.

Excellent: as expected.

Having tried a few loose leaf teas from Rare Tea, I decided it would be a worth while purchase to buy a box for myself. It had the fragrant cleanliness of a jasmine tea and the roundness of a leaf properly scented through. An excellent purchase with the satisfaction of knowing that the leaves are guaranteed to make a proper brew each time!

I was very disappointed in this particular blend of this tea. I loved my previous jasmine tea from RTC and it still had a beautiful fragrance in August, even though it was past its best before date of Jan 2021. Comparing my 'new' tea with its previous version - I definately prefer the one before. I am blessed with a very good sense of smell, but can only get a hint of the jasmine in the 'new' tea and that is quickly lost and becomes rather dull to smell and to taste. Having decided to settle on RTC , I am now wondering whether to look elsewhere

Beautiful Delicate Flavour

Unlike any white tea I have tasted before. This is a refined and delicate flavour, which I now can't be without! I also love the caddy it comes with.

A refined treat...

I bought this tea on a whim and I am so glad that I did. The tea has an amazing flavour and it is well worth carving some time out to sit and enjoy its delicate yet fulfilling flavours with nothing else to distract from the pleasure of the taste: It is almost a meditation. A pure treat.
