First cup. Steep 2 minutes.
The charming pearls unfold hastily upon brewing and the scent of jasmine flower rises immediately from the cup. As with any dragon pearl, it is fascinating to watch the expertly wrapped pearls unfold into the long strands of tea buds and leaves. This brew produced a pale golden liquor that is soothing even to the eyes. The flavor of the green tea is very clear amidst the jasmine. The flower itself is of exceptional quality, sweeter than many other jasmine flavored teas, yet not overpowering. This tea is transcendent therapy for all five senses.

Second cup. Steep 8 minutes.
This tea will yield only one good steep.

I have a little tip about how to steep jasmine tea——steep it as fresh oolong.
Use a Piao Yi tea maker or a Gaiwan. Make the first 2-3 infusions for 20-30 seconds like fresh oolong teas then strain the tea leaves immediately.
This way, the liquor will be light with a little sweet in the mouth. The aroma will not be that strong-just a mild scent of jasmine and the right grassy hint of green tea will not be covered.
Meanwhile, the tea leaves could be re-infused and enjoyed for more cups.

Thank you for the tip! I just finished off this and the jade snail sample in this style. It was delicious! What a great way to prolong the tranquil joy of these teas.
