Before Brewing:
These pearls are different from my other collection of jasmine pearls. They are a bit smaller and whiter with more “hair” on them. I like that! That’s like three indication of a good tea. And the smell of jasmine! Oh god, it’s so powerful.

After steeping:
It’s so relaxing to watch the pearls unfurl… Not to mention fun. I just love to see the balls that float at the top fall down to the bottom. Just call me evil, but I really like gravity (and water) drag them down. The brew is very light in color – to be honest it looks exactly like water. First sip reveals a gentle jasmine flavor. Some jasmine tea are too perfumed and too strong. Simply put : to damn overpowering. This has a perfect balance. Like other jasmine tea it has a lingering aftertaste, but it’s very discrete and quickly gone.

I resteeped the leafs, only to find the tea become even better!
It becomes so gentle and juicy at the back of the throat.

I am really pleased with these pearls. They deserve every star they got.

I’ll have to go back and give this one another chance. It was good, but I was looking for more fragrance and less “perfume like” taste. Do you happen to remember your time and temp? Maybe I messed up on the preparation.

I steeped them at a low temp.
The water was heated to 80, but I let it cool of to 75 – 70 celcius. Then the brew stood for about 5 min… if I remember correct that is :)

Many things can be said about me, but I rather not go into details… Other than the facts that: Yes, I am from Greenland (Yeah, it’s totaly awesome!) and I love my books, cats and tea.

I love all kinds of tea, but must confess a greater love towards the Da Hong Pao and a deep hatred for Ceylon and Pickwick. (Yes, I am aware that Ceylon is area). Sorry, It’s not them, it’s me.
Other than that I love the greens, the whites and the blacks (and all of the things in the middle) evenly.

Rating system – I love the smileyrate here on steepster, so I’ll just follow that. That’s 1 point for the worst tea in the history of man, and 100 point for some of the best tea… note that I usually rate high because I am a optimist and love all things tea.
