Wowza! This tea has quite a strong jasmine taste, so strong in fact I have a hard time tasting the black tea. I followed the instructions on the label, but may try it with a smaller steeping time because I found the jasmine taste so strong (I used the recommendation of 2 pearls). However despite have a bit of an overwhelming jasmine smell/taste, I do occasionally search it out in my cupboard. There are some days I want a tea to be able to rip my socks off because of its strong flavours, this is the one I go to for that.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 30 sec 1 tsp

Growing up, I hated tea. Everything about it from the way it smelt to the way it looked absolutely repulsed me. Until one fateful day, I walked past DAVIDsTEA and accepted one of the samples they they to force down your throat. The clouds opened, and the tea angels sang a heavenly tea song. I was addicted. My tea cupboard of wonder contains 63 different teas, and its growing daily. I do not have a tea base preference because when I’m craving a cuppa, I let the cupboard beckon me, and let fate decide. My tea cupboard is nearly famous, since most people ask to marvel it. However, the rules of the cupboard are: you do not talk about the cupboard, you DO NOT talk about the tea cupboard… and its strictly look, don’t touch. My tea cupboard is organized by base, then alphabetized under each category. Some call it crazy, but I call it AMAZING (and maybe a little OCD)
