After reading *ScottTeaMan*’s review of a different Jasmine Pearl tea, I was suddenly craving some. Being at work, this was the only option I had available. I was recently gifted with one of the Perfect Tea Makers from Teavana, so I brewed it up in there with some nice hot filtered water. It brewed a few minutes to evoke any real flavor before drinking.

The first go around was just lovely. Exactly what I needed to suit my palette. Unfortunately, it seems that I just don’t do well with flavored and scented teas in too great of a quantity. After about half the mug, I just sort of got a weird after-taste/feeling in my mouth from the Jasmine. I’m not sure if it’s just this jasmine tea or if I’m just too used to plain teas without flavoring or scenting.

i LIKE TO BREW THIS AT HOME WHERE i HAVE MORE CONTROL OVER THE STEEP TIME AND TEMP so I play with each element of reducing or increasing the number of pearls as well. Some Jasmines (even Jasmine pearl teas), have less Jasmine scent allowing more of the tea flavor to come through. I’m looking to purchase some of these this year. I guess my point is to not give up on them. You may find one that strikes the right balance for you. :))

I appreciate the encouragement, Scott! I’m definitely not going to give up on them! Just got to find the right balance, like you said. :)

Bio

I’m your standard nerdy girl in a lot of regards, from my taste in music, books, and movies to my penchant for getting completely wound up in various activities and hobbies. One of my hobbies that never seems to fade away is my joy in writing.

I’ve written a personal blog, a tea blog, and an adventure blog, all of which recently have been brought together to a single location – A Chomp at Life. The Fun and FlirTea section is dedicated to introducing tea to and enticing today’s younger, coffee-drinking generation. It’s a fun place to learn about tea and hopefully start meeting more tea-lovers as well!

More than almost anything else, I enjoy sharing the things I love and helping spread that joy. Now I’m doing this with tea, living life everyday, and adventures – and I couldn’t be more excited!
