This is my first loose leaf I’ve ever steeped. So all I have to compair it to is tea bags. I steeped it Twice. The Frist time I could taste the floral notes of the jasmine, and the black tea overshadowed the green so I couldn’t tell it was present. The bergamont was the after flavor that sort of lingered. The second steep – I didn’t notice the jasmine this time , the bergamot stood out. Again no flavor of green tea noticed. So the second steep was more like a Earl Gray.
