56 Tasting Notes
The nose has a lovely floral scent but that left me a little worried it would be overpowering the Ceylon. Upon tasting this tea, mild bergamot flavor makes this Earl Grey a winner for me. I really enjoyed the hints of citrus as the liquor cooled. This was a nice departure today from my nearly exclusive green tea drinking of 2010.
Wow! Having a couple of “Jasmine” teas in the past didn’t leave me expecting much. I received a sample of this tea when I got a Bodum Assam 17-Ounce Glass Tea Press as a Christmas gift. I wish I didn’t wait so long to try these Jasmine Pearls. It has a truly wonderful flavor! There is a hint of sweetness in this tea that I don’t think I have noticed before with any green leaf. This is definitely a tea to try if you haven’t yet. Of course now I am wondering if it is just the Green Tree version that is this good or all Jasmine Pearls are like this. Guess I will have to taste more to know for sure.
