I bought this tea before and remember it as lovely and flowery, but when I bought more of it later, it just... wasn't so great.
It looks nice with the tightly rolled balls of leaves. It's got a kind of metallic taste that I find a bit unpleasant. That could be the jasmine-like taste that the product description mentions, though - now that I think of it, it really reminds me of the one jasmine tea I own (though that one is of poor quality). This tea is not actually flavoured with anything, though. It does brew a pretty coloured cup, or rather, many of them. The tightly rolled leaves take many steepings to unfurl and release their flavour.
