Heavy jasmine (as the title suggests), if you don’t like jasmine don’t buy this tea.

Light, VERY floral, brewed at 180 for 4 minutes it came out flavorful but the jasmine over powered the teas flavor.

Very nice, fruity and flavorful especially cold. Lots of goodies for your health in this one and it smells wonderful dry or wet. Wouldn’t get too many re-steeps out of this one but the first couple are well worth the effort.

drank Gyokuro Imperial by Teavana
7 tasting notes

Wow, LOVE this tea, light and pleasant taste and an aroma to die for. Water temp is lower and very quick steep so more press than pot but really enjoyed this one.
Teavana pricing is pretty good over all but haven’t tried many other Gyokuro’s so will update as I do.

drank JavaVana Mate by Teavana

Nice tea/coffee type of drink, good for breakfast but kind of harsh after noon time. The smell is wonderful before and after brewing and you can use boiling water so that speeds the process a bit.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 5 min, 15 sec
