Very nice jasmine aroma to the dry leaf, which is dark green leaves, somewhat broken, with a few visible jasmine petals. 1 tsp dry leaf, 10 oz water at 180 F, 2 min. Clear light green liquor, not too astringent, vegetal (but not sweet) flavor, clean finish. Inexpensive tea, okay but nothing to rave about. I think it has been stored a long time.
