About this product

Product details

Jasmine teas vary according to the quality of the tea base and the skill and flower quality used for scenting. Yin Hao Jasmine delivers the best of everything. The tea is plucked in April during the Spring harvest, then tucked away until August when the finest jasmine blooms. The flowers are picked at noontime and kept until nightfall, when the temperature cools and the blooms open. Then the flowers and tea are blended together in layers, known as “marrying.” After several hours, the petals are removed and fresh flowers are applied. While ordinary grades are scented a couple of times, Yin Hao’s heady, otherworldly aroma comes from five to seven sets of fresh flowers.

Peet's Yin Hao Jasmine is now a Mighty Leaf tea. Same origin, same flavor, same quality.

I agree. The Might Leaf Yin Hao Jasmine is not the same even though I was told it was the same tea but just a different label. It doesn't have the nice jasmine taste/aroma. In fact it doesn't have much of any flavor. I am quite disappointed. Unfortunately I about 2 pounds left to use. After that is gone I will have to search for someone else who sells loose jasmine tea that actually tastes like jasmine.

I agree with the first reviewer. The Mighty Leaf Yin Hao Jasmine doesn't have the same fragrant jasmine taste and smell. I bought it by the pound. Peet's Customer Assistance informed me it was the same Peet's tea but with a different label. I disagree. There really isn't much jasmine at all. I will also have to find another source for my jasmine tea after I finish the current stock I have.

Since Peets discontinued their YHJ tea several months ago, I have been sampling a wide variety of YHJ teas from different sources. Seldom does the floral notes match expectations unless one drinks only Jasmine tea, and then there is only the floral note. Trying to balance the floral with the green tea is the challenge and perhaps a personal preference. Even with Peets original YHJ tea, the floral aroma/note varied from batch to batch. This Mighty Leaf is good, not as fabulous as the best from the past, but little is these days. My search continues....

This tea is really great. It has a nice smooth body to it. I recommend not to steep this tea too long, at most 2mins. There is no honey need the nature flavor are enough. I drink it throughout the day to give me an extra boast of energy.

I just opened my first tin of Mightly Leaf Yin Hao Jasmine. Surely this is not the same tea as Peet's. I have been drinking this tea for many years and always loved the flowery jasmine fragrance upon opening the tin or sipping from the cup. The new tea, to my nose, has little jasmine fragrance and almost has a medicinal wintergreen finish. Not sure I will order again. Such a disappointment.
