(Mine is loose, not bagged as shown.) I love that the jasmine scent is strong, but the green tea taste is not overpowered by the perfumey scent. This is a very nicely balanced tea. It is also fun to watch brew (in a clear teapot or IngenuiTEA) because the rolled leaves unfurl. It feels like a living creature, this tea, transferring its energy to my water. Fun!
