Still beautifully sweet, fruity, and floral, this is probably my favourite Jasmine green.

When dry, this tea is a very fragrant strong jasmine that leans towards a grape like iris smell. It almost smells like a fruity candy. The leaves are small, thin needles that are dark forest green with yellowish hairs with pieces of jasmine flowers interspersed inbetween. The tea smells like jasmine perfume oil, strong, fresh, it is a heavy sweet floral. The tea is silky, sweet, with a slightly grassy, vegetative note with hints of nuttyness and bitterness underneath, followed by a fresh feeling in the mouth than a burst of rich floral warm sweetness. It tastes true to the scent and flavour of

fresh jasmine. It retains a strong Jasmine flavour for the first 3 steepings (1 min each), after whih it starts to fade. The tea base remains sweet and still has flavour after 5 steepings. Really nice if you enjoy a strongly flavoured sweet Jasmine tea.
