drank Jasmine Tea by Fujian Tea
2 tasting notes

Jasmine Tea by Fujian Tea is the same as Jasmine Tea by Sunflower. It is an inexpensive loose leaf green tea scented with jasmine fragrance. Do not follow the packaged insert (pour boiling water for 5 minutes) with this or any green or white tea, as your tea will get bitter (boiling water on greens or white makes the tea release tannins).
Steep it at 175F/79C for 60 to 90 seconds, not longer than 2 minutes. I like 3 grams in 150 to 200ml (about 5 oz to 6.5 oz). You can get a second steep that will taste milder (and better in my opinion). As with any subsequent steep, it will have much less caffeine, but still some antioxidants. I know some people who prefer to discard the first steep, but I drink it.
It’s a good starter tea, for daily consumption, but nothing fancy.

175 °F / 79 °C 1 min, 15 sec 3 g 5 OZ / 150 ML
