This tea was one of mu first from my foray into good-quality loose-leaf tea. I love the little pearls and, unlike Adagio’s Black Dragon Pearls which are more like balls (insert joke here), these actually are dainty little pearls of tea.

I wanted to watch the pearls expand properly so I cut open the sachet and dumped the contents into my strainer. I love watching this tea of tea unfurl – it’s almost like a work of art right in my mug. The jasmine is delicately-fragrant but not overpowering (ie. I don’t feel like I’m drinking perfume). I got two good infusions out of these leaves and I think I could easily get one or two more.

I am so in love with jasmine pearl teas. I don’t know why, but there is something very soft and sweet about them.

Have you ever tried resteeping? We generally get a good 3-4 steeps out of the DPJ, which for the price, is awesome! 2nd steep is the best imho.

Yes the 2nd steep definitely is the best – by that time the leaves have had time of unfurl and expose themselves to the water. I usually don’t resteep more than once because I tend to get bored with the same tea after two cups – yes I’m fickle. :)

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!)
