Since I just placed an order for this tea, I figured I’d finish up the sampling that Doulton sent to me. (Thanks again!)

This is truly a delightful jasmine. It is important to get the brewing parameters correct (or as correct as you might get if you’re an “eyeballer” like me) because too hot a temperature can be detrimental to this tea.

But when brewed at a lower temperature, the taste is divine! A very strong jasmine flavor which is remarkable in itself, since I typically find non-pearl jasmine teas to be a bit soft in the jasmine flavor… perhaps soft isn’t the right word. But, it’s just OFF compared to that of the pearl – as pearl is the standard toward which all jasmines should strive.

I’m bumping this score a notch, just because I can and I feel like it.

Pearl Jasmine is the gold standard? I need to try a pearl jasmine!

Well, that is just my opinion of course… but, I love pearls.

The second infusion of these leaves is just as amazing as the first. I really love this tea.

Good for you – i think I lost that special scent/aroma on the 2nd infusion. Tasted good but it didn’t smell as good. But that first infusion – I had never smelled Jasmine Green tea so heavenly as this one!

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
