I used too little tea leaves, so the flavour was very mild. I made two brews and poured them in the same cup. The first few sips had a bit of an unpleasant sharpness, but it mellowed out and disappeared after cooling a little. The jasmine smell is barely there in the bag, but the fragrance after brewing is fantastic. I’ll try it again with more leaves before making a judgement.
This was from the same generic batch as the white tea at $3.75/oz. The price seems a little low for the first grade, especially because I live in Canada, but the leaves were very young. All very small and slender, and with buds as well. I’m swaying between first and third (there’s no second grade on the site), so I’ll ask the next time I go.
