While I am no Green Tea expert, I can honestly say I love this tea. Its nice and smooth and the only time I found it bitter was when I severely over brewed it (near boiling water, meant to steep for 2 min. forgot and left it sit for nearly 10!) I have been able to get 4 good infusions on a portion of this tea before the flavor degrades. Also its one of the few Jasmine Greens I’ve tried (out maybe 10ish different brands) that actually has Jasmine buds IN the tea. Very nice!
