For a non-pearled jasmine, this is a really amazing tea. I’m very picky about jasmines. I like this tea so much I think it’s my favorite of all the excellent Damn Fine Teas. This is partly because I’m really good at messing up the steeping time on most teas, and this one seems harder to ruin than most. It may be smarter than my forgetfulness. The only Damn Fine Tea that is tougher to over-steep is the excellent Bai Mu Dan.
