This tea has a strong fragrance about it. I actually end up using some other black or green loose tea leaves to mellow it out. Essentially it is just black tea that has been heavily scented with jasmine. In small doses it is pretty good but I do have to water it down or use other teas with. There are larger cans of this but I got the small can. The can is nice and I like the color, keeps the aroma inside and not all over.
