I like this tea. It has a nice jasmine scent and it has a mild flavor. It can be steeped tons of times and it is not very picky.

It is a very enjoyable tea, especially if you want to not have a caffeine-heavy tea. White tea is one of the least processed, unlike black teas, so I really enjoy it for a night tea. It first tastes a bit bitter but then becomes sweet, with a slight aftertaste of rice. It has a nice cooling effect, which works wonders in the summer.
Flavors: Bitter, Rice, Sweet
Delicious on cold winter days, because it reminds you of Spring and Summer days. It can get very bitter if over steeped, but otherwise has a very delicate jasmine flavor. One of my favorite teas.
Flavors: Cut Grass, Floral, Honey, Jasmine, Tea
It seems rather cliche for a chick named Jasmine to be caught sipping on jasmine tea. So I like to think of this as one of my guilty pleasures. To be fair, the first time I had a jasmine tea I wasn’t told what it was, so the name had nothing to do with my reaction.
All that ridiculousness having been said I absolutely LOVE this tea. The sweat softness of the silver needle tea plays well with the jasmine tones. Unlike some other teas I’ve had neither flavor overpowers the other. I think it’s sweet enough on it’s own but when you add just a little sugar it takes on a much more floral flavor.
I steeped it too long – probably five minutes, and it was a full-bodied pure jasmine flavor. I couldn’t tell it was white tea because it still tastes strong, and my impression of white tea is that it’s mild (but that is based on conjecture rather than experience!)
Then I realized I had left the leaves in the pot, for a VERY long time, and it was very strong and astringent – completely my fault! I will add water and try it again or maybe make it into an iced tea. But even with the strong flavor I still had another cup because something about the tangy taste of jasmine somehow both calms and excites me.
Overall a great, pure jasmine tea. No other flavors.
