I was introduced to this a few years ago by a Pakistani friend at work. When I switched work locations I fell out of the habit of this tea. He is out in my office for the next few months and when I was sharing an Assam with him, I commented on my lack of a good jasmine green to have with Chinese and Thai dishes. He brought me in a spare box of this!
I’m so glad to have found this again. It’s lightly sweet, floral without being harsh and not grassy at all. I’m still going to pick up more of my favorite jasmine white from Shang eventually, but for something I can throw in a cup, not worry about oversteeping and just drink down with spicy Thai, this sure fills the need.
My initial taste was at about 3 1/2 minutes, but I left the bag in the cup for the next 1/2 hour while eating and it never got bitter.
