I opened my parcel, and BAM sweet wonderful floral scent. “That’s probably the Jasmine Pearls” I thought to myself, already excited to try it.
This is my first ever Jasmine Pearls tea, and I’m very excited. When nearly everyone on Steepster adds swoon after the words ‘Jasmine Pearls’ you know you have to try it. :) I had no idea where to begin, but as soon as I notice that Butiki had it, I knew I could safely try it and be assured that if I didn’t like Stacy’s, then it’s not the tea for me.
Anyway, it’s incredible. This tea assaults your senses in the most perfect way, and somehow manages to be incredibly delicate about it. As you drink it, the scent fills you, and you taste exactly what you smell on your tongue at the same time. I’ve never had a tea that just FILLS your nose as much as this one does while drinking.
It’s absolutely wonderful. I feel like I’m sitting in a field of flowers that stretches out as far as the eye can see in every direction. I’m drinking the flowers, and as I taste them, the perfumy sweet smell is all around me.
Back to reality, the little pearls unfurled into really beautiful long leaves. If I had more of this, I’d be tempted to just sit and watch it for the full four minutes to watch the transformation.
My only regret is that I simply ordered this as a sample and didn’t buy more right away. This is on the shopping list, and soon hopefully in my cupboard.
