drank Jasmine Pearl by Octavia Tea
4219 tasting notes

These are excellent pearls, I am very impressed by the fact that I poured the pearls out into my hand to examine them and there were very few broken and/or crushed tea leaf particles amongst the very uniform sized and shaped pearls. Quite often when I come across a jasmine pearl the leaves have some “leaf debris” … broken bits and pieces of leaf that end up sifting their way through the lid of the gaiwan and ending up in my strainer. (I strain the tea “twice” – once through the lid, which I then pour through a strainer, so I do not end up with these errant bits in my cup)

And the flavor is divine! A good balance of flavor – the tea tastes light and a touch buttery while the jasmine is sweet. No sharp or artificial jasmine notes. Nice.

Bio

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.
