If you buy your jasmine tea from the supermarket, stop it now. Stop it right now. This is so much better than brands you can get in UK supermarkets. It's cheaper and the taste is vastly better. I can't believe I waited so long to switch.
I have tried many Jasmine teas and this is my favourite. The jasmine flowers give it the proper flavour that is missing from many other teas. Good jasmine tea is never cheap but I think I have found a lovely flavoured tea for a reasonable price. I will continue to buy it and enjoy the authentic flavour. Ordering was easy and delivery was very quick. Delicious, authentic flavour at a reasonable price. Very happy, thank you.
You can pay a great deal more for tea that is nowhere near as nice as this. The team contains plenty of jasmine blossom, so not just tea that is infused, it contains the jasmine flowers themselves and there is no shortage of them. It's a great tea at a good price. Thank you Teacakes!
Tea was easy to select - the web site is clear and easy to use. Delivery was timely and the tea was competitively priced. The tea is also delicious!
I first drank jasmine tea with blossoms when I was fifteen almost fifty years ago. I used to buy it served from a japanned canister, weighed in scales on a mahogany counter and then hand wrapped in white paper from a wonderful old tea merchant in Wolverhampton called WTM Snape. I can still remember the exquisite fragrance and the sheer pleasure of watching the dried jasmine blossoms unfold in the teapot.
I was utterly delighted when I first tried the jasmine blossom loose leaf green tea from TeaCakes. I was immediately taken back over four decades to the delightful scent and pale, delicate flowers of real jasmine tea. This tea really is quite splendid; it is light, it is pleasing, it is fragrant without being overbearing, it is refreshing and it revitalises a flagging spirit. I cannot recommend it more highly.
