drank Jasmine Pearls by Golden Moon Tea
1584 tasting notes

The pearls are neat – small, slightly fizzy and striped with dark green and silver when they were dry. The leaves were a bit slow to unwind and the first steep at two minutes was a little bland. A second steep (@3:15 min) gave the leaves more of a chance to unfurl and the end result almost looked like a bunch of curls. I found the flavour was fuller and much improved on the second steep as well.

This tea is fairly similar to the jasmine green all told – there’s maybe a bit more substance to the base and a bit more character but to be honest in my opinion both of them are nothing special. Part of that I think is because I’m generally not a fan of jasmine teas (Harney & Sons’ Dragon Pearl Jasmine being the only exception) and that biases me against them somewhat.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
