I know I promised you another blog entry in one week, but a week and a half isn't too bad for me, right? Better than my usual month between entries! Once again, my apologies for keeping you all waiting, and now, without further ado, is this week's tea review!
This week's review is on a tea company called In Nature Teas. They are another Organic tea company, which is becoming an increasingly popular trend in the world of tea! I remember the days, not too long ago, when organic teas just did not meet the same quality standards as their mainstream counterparts. Companies like In Nature, and others, are changing this for the better. In fact, I would wager that some of the better teas I have sampled in the past few years have been organic ones. It is very relieving to me to see organic products meeting such high standards!
Now, back to the main point. Recently, I received a package of samples from In-Nature. The sample I'll review today is one of their Jasmine blends.
For the most part, I can say nothing but good about the jasmine tea that I sampled. I have always been a fan of jasmines, and this seemed like a particularly good one. Pure, whole jasmine pearls, with very little breakage, just the way it ought to be. Brewing the tea was also a sinch - they included detailed brewing instructions in the box, that covered the amount and precise temperature of brewing. The cup clarity of this blend is at least as good as any jasmine that I have sampled before. They seem to have done everything right with this blend. Additionally, the buds were picked at the right time, and had just the right balance of flavour and astringency.
The packaging was also second-to-none. A well-designed and durable storage box, inside of which is a foil-sealed bundle of Jasmine. Also inside is a sheet of paper giving you more info on the blend you just opened, as well as containing detailed preparation and brewing instructions. The packaging is both useful and attractive, and very well suited toward keeping your tea as fresh as possible.
Shipment was fast, and every inquiry that I submitted was answered quickly and professionally.
In Nature is, and shall remain one of my highest recommendations for a quality organic Jasmine. I thank them for allowing me to experience their product.
I hope you have all enjoyed reading this review. Look for another in about 1-2 weeks.
