First off, I love the way the hand rolled pearls look- they are dainty,delicate and just beautiful. The strong smell of Jasmine is a bit overpowering. Although Jasmine is a natural strong scent, that some people don’t enjoy, I do enjoy it- it’s sweet smelling and floral at the same time- which is appealing. The taste of this tea is not as strong as the smell by any means, the liquor is very delicate and wonderful all around. It’s light, it’s floral, it’s just great. I really think this tea would be wonderful to drink on a summer or spring day when it is not warm or cold, but just in between. All around, I think this tea is great and I respect Adagio offering higher quality teas in their new Maestro Collection.
