Love love love this Jasmine! Fragrant, classic jasmine, organic, and not bitter even after a lengthy steep. I much prefer this one to the Vietnamese.

I compared this tea with Imperial Dragon, Pheonix, and Yin Hao.
This tea is third rate to Impearl and phoenix. (Standard) Dragon tea is more earthy and bitter than impearl but I believe Yin Hao is slightly more bitter. Additionally, this tea is more finicky for the brew time or else it becomes quite bitter. Phenix and impearl has different liquors but the flavor is verry similar and are excellent options. Buy those 2 over this tea.
1. Impearl Dragon
2. Phenix (close second)
4. Yin Hao
I was a bit disappointed, because tealyra’s phoenix pearls are so good, I thought this would be really good too. It was good, but not the best yin hao I have had. First steep was good, slight jasmine smell and taste, second steeping, very vegital taste and smell, third steep typical green tea taste. Not bad for the price.
This tea is nice enough but I was looking for a stronger jasmine flavor
