When I’m traveling, I always like to take a nice black tea with me to perk me up in the mornings. (Have you seen most hotel tea selections? Blech!) This morning, I’m sampling M&K Tea Company’s Black Jasmine. This blend is a mix of Nepalese, Chinese, and Sri Lankan black teas along with jasmine flowers and jasmine extract.
This is an oaky, fragrant brew, but I feel like the jasmine flavor got lost a bit with all this black tea. On the flipside, the jasmine also tempers the black tea so it’s not a bitter cup. It’s not quite Yamamotoyama’s jasmine tea, but I’ll take it!
