My goodness, what an amazing tea. For starters, the tea leaves were very fresh and had a lot of the original pollen (some incorrectly attribute this to dust). The Jasmine scenting process must have been done exquisitely delicately and with great precision, as I found not a single jasmine petal in a half pound amount of this tea, and as I looked through it all, there were very, very few broken bits. The leaves did dance in my glass infuser, as a good white needle tea should. The taste was an exquisite, mildly sweet white tea with a perfect coupling of Jasmine. Such a relaxing tea… And excellent as a cold brew.
