As is common with this type of tea, the jasmine flavor overpowers much of the tea, but hey, if you’re like me and you like jasmine, then you might enjoy it anyways. It is perhaps a bit over-scented though.
A slight note of grape leaf develops later on.
Flavor notes: Jasmine, green vegetation, and grape leaf.
