Found this tea in a with a bunch of sampler bags when visiting my parents for Thanksgiving. It is of unknown age, but was unopened, in an airtight (like welded shut) heavy ziplock sample bag.
First brew (~2min, 212F) – I like this blend. Surprisingly strong blackberry flavor up front with a jasmine note following. It has what I think of as a green tea finish, slightly green/grassy, but not overdone. No harshness or chemical taste.
Second brew (~4min, 185F) – 2nd steep cam out just as dark as the first (note the extra time). The blackberry isn’t up front like the first steep, but its still there and on par with the jasmine. They complement each other very well. Still green tea, but the grassy is not as pronounced. IF anythng, I like the second cup better than the first. A very drinkable combination – would recommend and would buy if came across it.
Flavors: Blackberry, Grassy, Green, Jasmine
