This tea should probably be considered a jasmine tea rather than a green tea. The scent (strong jasmine) is quite true to the flavor of the finished brew. The color is pale yellow.
The way I brew it – 175 for a bit over a minute – it is very smooth and sweet, with only the tiniest hint of bitterness that tickles the tongue. The hot tea is excellent without any additives, so it’s a nice tea to drink throughout the day (assuming that the caffeine doesn’t bother you). It remains pleasant and floral as it cools and makes a great iced tea – maybe add a smidge of cane sugar.
This tea stands up pretty well to second steepings, but I do recommend adding another pinch of leaves at subsequent steepings. Then again, I recommend doing that for most teas.
If you want a nice jasmine tea for daily use or iced tea, but you don’t want to break the bank, I really don’t think this one can be beat.
