Smells like Jasmine and tastes like Rose.
Has a semi-bitter aftertaste tho.

It still bothers me there are no real brewing instructions on these teas. H2O + pod = tea are not real steeping instruction in any language. I continue to experiment one 36oz pot at a time. This is a green tea so boiling water should probably not be used. The however is, the first blooming green I tried was very slow to open. So boiling water it is. Didn’t make the tea the least bit bitter IMO. The pod bloomed beautifully. I haven’t had any problems with the pod coming apart. Not sure why others would have problems. The display is so pretty I almost hate to pour it… almost.
This is another very mild Jasmine. It is the predominate flavor but not overwhelmingly so. It blends well with the green tea. I can’t tell that the flowers are adding anything to the flavor of the cup. If they do it is very subtle. Very pale amber brew with a natural sweetness. Honestly I can’t tell the difference between this and the lovers leap I brewed a couple days ago. That’s ok with me because I like it.
The second pot I steeped long and strong on purpose. I was curious to see what would happen. The brew, of course, was much darker. The scent of jasmine was present wafting off the cup. Still no hint of bitterness. Interestingly, the flavor of jasmine seems to have moved to the background and I get just a hint of the flowers now (that could be my imagination). I am also noticing a dryness in my mouth. I prefer the way I steeped the first pot.
I am always leery when someone who does not like Earl Grey recommends an EG to me. So let me make clear, I do not normally like jasmine tea, but I am enjoying these blooming teas by Primula.
So delicious. If left to steep long enough, the bitter afternote isn’t as strong, in my opinion, and it’s just thoroughly pleasing. The little bits of tea leaves that break off the main pod during brewing are my absolute favorite part – they’re so sweet and robust. Delicious!!
