Taken with sugar.
Good flavor. I feel like it needs sugar to make the jasmine pop and to smooth out the astringency in the black tea but it definitely doesn’t need milk which is nice. Not needing milk seems to be a sign of quality so good marks there.
The jasmine seems to over run the black tea on flavor though. It is not a balanced tea where you can taste both equally. Instead the jasmine is in the absolute spot light and the black tea doesn’t feel as developed as it could have been. Which is also a mark of quality so bad marks there.
The weirdest thing though is that lack of mouth feel from the black tea. I can feel the jasmine but the black under flavor seems washed out and without texture.
So this is a light tea with strong jasmine flavor.
Not over powering.
But in a sense not all there.
