Q: Why the Jasmine Herbal Tea itself has less jasmine flavor than other jasmine flavored teas?
A: Most of us are familiar with the heavy jasmine flavor which can be smelled from all kinds of jasmine flavored teas. So we think the jasmine flower should have the same aroma. But it is not.Usually, during the tea scenting process, to make sure the jasmine flavored teas can fully absorb the jasmine flavor, the tea to jasmine flower ratio is 1:8. Based on different grade of teas, the scenting process will be repeated about 4 to 8 times. So we can smell the heavy jasmine flavor.However, the pure jasmine herbal tea is made of fresh jasmine buds, which are picked in the morning and directly dryed with a dryer. So, the jasmine flavor will become weak. That's why we can not smell a heavy jasmine flavor.But when we brew this tea, we can still smell the fresh and light jasmine flavor.
As the biggest jasmine growing area in China, Heng County has been honored by China’s State Forestry Administration (SFA) and China Flower Association as “The hometown of Chinese jasmine”. Being affected by the tropical monsoon climate of South Asia, Heng County in Guangxi has sufficient sunshine and rainfall, long lasting summer and frostless period, less snow days – all these favorable climatic conditions are favorable to the growth of jasmine.
Jasmines are widely cultivated in the world for their characteristic flower fragrance which has a good reputation of being reminiscent of the air taste of the spring. Jasmines are native to tropical and subtropical regions of Eurasia, Australasia and Oceania and later introduced to China. Jasmines thrive in warm, humid area with abundant sunshine. It blooms in summer and autumn (June-October) and its flowers are white and have rich fragrance.
Herbal tea refers to any beverage made from the infusion or decoction of plant material including flower, stem, or leaf even plant root. These 100% natural ingredients without any artificial colors and caffeine content can guarantee its good quality. So we can say these good-looking herbal teas, being rich in nutrients (such as Vitamin B, C, and E), are not only pleasant to look and but also healthy to drink.

First of all I've to say that the aroma is great. It's really sweet jasmine. I really like jasmine flavoured green teas and this is my first time drinking only jasmine. The flavour is not bad either. It's really mellow, sweet and delicate. It's not that strong, but maybe increasing the amount of buds will do the trick. Good tea, but it needs 'the kick'.
THE GOOD NEWS... The pure jasmine herbal tea makes a nice, soothing drink on its own. 7g per 500mL was prepared with boiling water in a Western glass pitcher. It was slightly too bold (although not bitter at all) for my tastes so I diluted it by 25%. It yielded a light yellow liquor that tasted mildly sweet, but very subtle. The aroma was very pungent (as expected for jasmine). I've also tried a 1:1 mix of jasmine and rose buds (also sold by Teavivre), which went well. THE BAD NEWS... Originally, I had intended to purchase this as a jasmine bud stock to flavour / strengthen my teas. As a great jasmine tea enthusiast, I had thought this jasmine herbal tea was a good opportunity.... but these jasmines are too subtle. It didn't work out; the jasmine buds were too subtle to be detected with the teas (green buds, white silver needles etc. I had lots to try), or when use in greater proportions, the mix tasted...flat. These jasmine buds are not suited to be mixed with other teas. THE VERDICTS... I suggest trying this tea on its own, or even better yet, mix it with the Rose buds Herbal Tea. I do not recommend it as an additive to flavour/strengthen teas into floral teas, or be mixed with actual tea bases. (And so it gets averaged out into 3/5 stars. I'm glad I had sample a sachet before deciding to purchase a stock.)
