Black Jasmine Cream

Blended black and green tea
Margaret's Fine Imports

Ingredients: Green tea, black tea, and jasmine flowers with jasmine and vanilla flavor.

Earl grey drinkers will love this creamy jasmine tea. It's enhanced with jasmine flavor, so the aroma packs a punch. I avoid flavor-added tea, but I guess I just can't shake it.

The floral taste has some astringency, followed by the sweetness of vanilla. You wouldn't think so from the description, but it works with milk when hot. It's hearty like a black tea, but the touch of green tea accommodates the jasmine. It appears to be a mix of CTC and twisted leaves.

A Margaret's employee recommended trying it iced. I think I will!
