The pyramid sachets are filled with little rolled pearls of white tea that look quite similar to my Harney & Sons’ Dragon Pearl Jasmin. They lack the sweet, floral scent of the former however; instead they smell more or less like the dried goji berries that are mixed in with them. The tea brews up quite pale with a very faint, almost savoury odor.

The flavour is disapointingly dull and weak. Mostly it just tastes like goji berry-flavoured water. I’ll have another go at it with the second steep which’ll hopefully be better now the the pearls have had time to absorb water and unfurl.

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!)
