I was rather disappointed with this tea.
The jasmine flavor is difficult to detect when hot, but it gets better as the tea cools. Otherwise, it simply tastes like hot water.
However, the high quality of tea leaves does come through, as well as yield a pleasant jasmine flavor, weak as it is. Yet most drinkers wouldn’t normally look for a high-grade leaf taste, but rather overall presence. Because Republic of Tea suggests steeping for only 30-60 seconds, the flavor ends up rather weak and seemingly under-steeped.
If you’re really looking for SUBTLE flavor, this might do the job. The mouthfeel and lingering flavor afterward is nice, with no sensation of tannin.
