The scent of this tea is so unbelievably tantalizing! Such a gorgeous floral jasmine fragrance amidst the grassy green tea aroma. This is a very smooth, soft, floral tea with airy nuances and subtle undertones.
Rua Tea describes this tea as:
Jasmine Yin Hao is a perfectly balanced aromatic green tea. This top grade jasmine scented green with white, downy tips infuses to a pale green cup with a delicate, sweet flavor.
All of our teas come beautifully packaged in our artisan designed tea tin with clear lid. Designed to keep tea fresh and dry. Each tea tin yields approx. 10-12 cups of tea, depending on the tea. And can be used for multiple infusions.
Recommendations: Use 1 level tsp. per 6 oz. cup; heat fresh water until it is steaming briskly (not boiling); let steep for 1 ½ to 2 min. Good for multiple infusions.
I used 1 teaspoon of tea in my mug, which is slightly larger than 6 oz, so I let it steep a little longer than recommended, which didn’t seem to add an extra bitterness to this tea. As with all of Rua Tea’s items, you can smell and taste the quality in the tea leaves. While (to me) this tea isn’t quite as good as Jasmine Pearls, it’s still a very lovely Jasmine scented green tea with long tippy green tea leaves that really cast a delicate flavor. If you like jasmine flavored teas, or soft green teas, this is a perfect tea for you.
