just got 3 good steeps from this one (as normally tends to be the case). a nice, unobtrusive jasmine flavor. not overwhelming but lighly floral. somehow i feel cleansed by drinking jasmine tea. i don’t dislike it as i’d originally thought i would! my first experience with a jasmine tea was Teavana’s Jasmine Silver Needle & it is quite pleasant. so too, is this offering from Fairway Market! for a fraction of the price. it’s also not Silver Needle. but still…a satisfying cup! good after a meal. simple, refreshing, cleansing.
1st steep i made sure water was sufficiently cooled & did 3 minutes. subsequent steeps went to 5 & 5+ min with hotter water. didn’t seem to ruin the flavor & yet the liquor was a solid honey yellow….each time! very interesting. wonder what the base tea is.
