So so fragrant - truly delicious

At first sip, this tea has skyrocketed to my all time favourite. I now start every day with a pot. As a long time lover of jasmine tea, this is the most jasmine-y I've ever had, absolutely delicious.

Absolutely wonderful Jasmine Tea

This Jasmine tea (as with all the Rare Tea offerings) is top quality. Refreshing, clear and with a little sweetness, it is a true delight to drink.

A beautiful softly scented tea

I first had this tea aboard Fred Olsen Ship Borealis, where I went to a tea tasting event. The staff of the Bookmark cafe gave us a taste of several of your teas, and the lovely Sommelier gave us all the information on each tea we tasted, but I particularly enjoyed this one for its lovely light perfume and taste. I would thoroughly recommend it.

Tasting Notes

A deep and heady aroma with a light, gentle flavour and a natural sweetness.


Use 2g of tea per 150ml of water.


For the optimum infusion use 70°C (158°F) water.


Infuse for 1 - 2 minutes, tasting regularly.


You can infuse this tea at least twice. With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.

Cost Per Cup

33p per cup based on 2g of tea per 150ml of water and 2 infusions.

I thought I hated jasmine tea - that it was bitter, astringent and overpowering. This tea however, is soft, surprisingly sweet and very subtly scented - it feels more like an evening wander in summer than anything else. Would definitely recommend.

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.
