The dry leaves have a very intoxicating sweet jasmine (floral) scent. Very nice. The leaves are also nice and small and unbroken. After steeping, the floral scent is transferred to the tea.

The tea smells and looks extreme pleasant. It also tastes very fresh and of course very jasmine-like, but not too overwhelming. This seems to be the ultimate jasmine tea, until….. you start to taste a very strange flavour after 2 to 3 seconds after sipping. It is comparable to a bitterness, but it tastes more chemical-like which then develops into a bitterness. It’s not easy to pinpoint what it is exactly, but it keeps hanging in the back of your mouth. This really is a shame for this otherwise really good tea.

This hint of chemical taste is gone with the second steep, but unfortunately; so is the pronounced jasmine flavour. Despite the setbacks, it’s still a tea you can pour for your guests if they like jasmine teas.

The jasmine aroma is nice, but this tea has a funny note to it that I don’t like, a bit like terpentine or paint. A bit strange.
