Silk Dragon Jasmine | 24 Days of Tea #18

Silk Dragon Jasmine - 24 Days of Tea Day 18Made from premium green tea, our Silk Dragon is a limited-edition treasure. To create it, night-blooming jasmine is gathered in the morning and kept cool all day. In the evening, when the flowers burst open and release their scent, they are placed with the tea until midnight. This is repeated with fresh flowers over the course of five nights, infusing the tea with a most magical flavour. (MK Kosher)

aroma:

This aromatic green tea is full of lovely grassy green tea notes with just enough floral to dress it up a bit. Light and airy, it is a welcoming and mellow treat.

flavour:

The flavour of Silk Dragon Jasmine is more robust with a stronger green tea presence and just a touch of subtly sweet jasmine florals. I don’t know whether I just happened to steep it perfectly or if it is the effect of the jasmine flowers but this tea has no hint of astringency and is just a touch bitter, enough to balance the floral notes without overpowering them.
