I’ll be honest. I have never gotten the first cup of this. I have tried for a month. I got it for my wife and I to share but as soon as the vanilla fragrance wafts through the house my wife pops in from nowhere and walks off with my cup. So this is based on the second steep. There are jasmine blossoms all through the mix. The leaf itself is larger pieces. Definitely not CTC. The taste starts like cotton candy then seems more like caramel. As the cup cools I can taste the base especially in the aftertaste. This is very tasty decaf or not. I can see why I am not allowed to have the first cup! :)

My daughter does the same thing. She has a talent for knowing exactly when a tea is done steeping and then she swoops in and gets my cup. At least she says thank you while walking away. :)

My wife has to avoid caffeine, so I figure this is a win if she enjoys it. A lot of decaf is a little icky.
