I really like this tea. It steeps well both hot and iced (sometimes i will throw a teabag or two into a cold thermos and just let it steep during the day and i have iced tea on the go! Not sure if it is “proper” but it certainly is handy… And delicious!) I haven’t tried any other teas with jasmine, so I can’t compare, but the price per box is good and to me it is a very “comforting” tea. I will also sometimes mix this with other varieties of green teas for something different.
