Steep Information:
Amount: 1 teabag
Additives: none
Water: 12 ounces filtered almost boiling, between 170-175
Steep Time: a little over 3 minutes
Served: Hot

Tasting Notes:
Smell: Jasmine Flower, grassy
Flavor: light grassy smooth and delicately subtle
Body: Light
Aftertaste: floral
Liquor: light honey yellow-green

This is a strong smelling tea with a very delicate flavor, and the grassy is a very very light flavor so I don't mind. I enjoy this tea, and as far as greens go I rate this one very high among those I have tried. I like this as Much as the Aloe Serenity and iced Peachberry Jasmine Sutra . Keeping in mind green is not one of my favorite types.

This is more water than the 6 ounces it should be, but i don't think it was hurt by it at all. I also find it easier to believe most people have 12 ounce mugs and less use 6 ounce cups outside Steepster.

I purchased this as part of a sampler pack from Mighty Leaf.

Post-Steep Additives: none

Resteep: 5-6 minutes, too bitter, tried at 3 but it was a little bitter and weak. It's drinkable but not as good as the first steep.

Rating: 2.5/3
