How It Tastes

Yin Hao Jasmine is scented five times with fresh flowers, so the purely natural jasmine scent is the most pronounced and true of all jasmine-scented green teas. The cup is a bright green-gold, only slightly vegetal and with a robust nutty body. Yin Hao means "silver tip," and indicates the very finely plucked leaf that gives this tea it's fine quality.

History

The process begins when 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 in the height of summer and kept until nightfall, when the temperature cools and the blooms open. While ordinary grades are scented a couple of times, Yin Hao’s heady, otherworldly aroma comes from five sets of fresh flowers.

I absolutely LOVE this tea! I searched for a year for a Jasmine tea that waa comparable to one that was given to me from China. This is now my go to favorite Jasmine Tea!!!

I agree with nearly everyone who is disappointed that Peet's rebranded their teas as Mighty Leaf. It is a downgrade in brand, and in the case of the Yin Hao Jasmine tea, quality. It is not as good as it used to be, but I do think it is better than mass market jasmine green tea. So, I buy it. But, is it nowhere near as good as it used to be.

I have been drinking this tea for years and even if different from the old product, it is still an amazing tea and beats out any other jasmine green tea commercially available! Just wish you weren't out of stock at this moment.

The previous reviewers are not wrong--it is a slightly different Yin Hao than before Peet's rebranded their teas to Mighty Leaf. They are, however, too vitriolic. The new Yin Hao comes from a different estate, which is why it tastes differently. It is, however, still a *very* good tea, and still has a depth of flavor not experienced in the Jasmine Fancy; the latter of which, mind you, is still of higher quality than anything from Lipton.

This is definitely NOT the same Yin Hao Jasmine tea Peet's sold before they started selling Mighty Leaf. Since I had a can of the original, I decided to do a taste comparison with the new version. The old tea has such a deep rich green flavor with the jasmine flower smell and taste prominent. The new tea tastes like a cheap green tea you would get at an restaurant. I can't figure out why Peet's decimated their line of teas. I grew up on Peet's coffee and tea. My mom took us to the very first Peet's in Berkeley and we met Mr. Peet. This is so disappointing. Would someone from Peet's please give me the name of your last supplier so I could contact them for tea?
