I’d never had jasmine tea before I picked this one up. The jasmine is relatively strong compared to others I’ve since tried, but there are days where I just want to drink a cup of flowers! :D I suspect it’s a green tea since it brews a medium amber color. Relatively smooth. If the water is too hot, it can get bitter. I usually don’t take the tea bag out at all when I’m drinking it, so it can steep for up to ten minutes sometimes. :) I love the smell, love the flavor!
